Tim Baker has created wonderful characters in Pilar and Fuentes.</p> <p><strong>From the Blurb:</strong></p> <p>The only thing more dangerous than the cartels is the truth...</p> <p>In Ciudad Real, Mexico, a deadly war between rival cartels is erupting, and hundreds of female sweat-shop workers are being murdered. As his police superiors start shutting down his investigation, Fuentes suspects most of his colleagues are on the payroll of narco kingpin, El Santo.</p> <p>Meanwhile, despairing union activist, Pilar, decides to take social justice into her own hands. But if she wants to stop the killings, she's going to have to ignore all her instincts and accept the help of Fuentes. When the name of Mexico's saintly orphan rescuer, Padre Márcio, keeps resurfacing, Pilar and Fuentes begin to realise how deep the cover-up goes. </p> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-tags field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field--label">Tags</div> <div class="field--items"> <div class="field--item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/3221" hreflang="en">#amreading</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/9" hreflang="en">Australia</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/3325" hreflang="en">Mexico</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/3326" hreflang="en">City Without Stars</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/370" hreflang="en">Tim Baker</a></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-book field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field--items"> <div class="field--item"><div data-history-node-id="2031" class="row bs-2col node node--type-books node--view-mode-blogged-books"> <div class="col-sm-6 bs-region bs-region--left"> <div class="form-item js-form-item form-wrapper js-form-wrapper panel panel-default" id="bootstrap-panel--2"> <div class="panel-heading"> <div class="panel-title">BOOK INFORMATION</div> </div> <div class="panel-body"> <div class="field field--name-field-book-cover field--type-image field--label-hidden field--items"> <div class="field--item"> <a href="/book/city-without-stars" hreflang="en"><img src="/sites/default/files/styles/medium/public/book-covers/city-without-stars.jpg?itok=8agLDPOr" width="144" height="220" alt="City Without Stars" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </a> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-author field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field--label">Author</div> <div class="field--items"> <div class="field--item"><a href="/author/tim-baker" hreflang="en">Tim Baker</a></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-isbn field--type-string field--label-above"> <div class="field--label">ISBN</div> <div class="field--items"> <div class="field--item">9780571338337</div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-year-of-publication field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field--label">Year of Publication</div> <div class="field--items"> <div class="field--item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/849" hreflang="en">2017</a></div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="col-sm-6 bs-region bs-region--right"> <div class="form-item js-form-item form-wrapper js-form-wrapper panel panel-default" id="bootstrap-panel--3"> <div class="panel-heading"> <div class="panel-title">BLURB</div> </div> <div class="panel-body"> <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field--item"><p>The only thing more dangerous than the cartels is the truth...</p> <p>In Ciudad Real, Mexico, a deadly war between rival cartels is erupting, and hundreds of female sweat-shop workers are being murdered.
