Every now and then, a вЂњstealth bookвЂќ comes along вЂ“ one that surprises you, captures you in its grip, and doesnвЂ™t let go until you turn the last page. THE GHOST OF MILAGRO CREEK is such a book.
THE GHOST OF MILAGRO CREEK is such a book.
I expected this book to be something else entirely вЂ“ a light mystery about two blood brothers who vied for the same gringo girl in the Cain-and-Abel tradition. In reality, the book is lyrical, poignant, and from time to time, electrifying. It depicts the life of the Taos barrio colorfully and вЂ“ in my mind вЂ“ authentically.
