Library Journal Review

Partners in Brown Angel Security and Investigations, Justin Escobar and Gloria Damasco (Black Widow's Wardrobe; Cactus Blood; Eulogy for a Brown Angel) become involved in a couple of murky cases dating back to the Chicano Civil Rights Movement in late 1960s Berkeley, CA. In one case, they look for a man, wanted for medical reasons, who was a charismatic activist at the time. In the other, potential partner Dora Salda searches for a missing writer whose apparently discarded manuscript details a contemporary rape. Furtive surveillance, bungled burglaries, bugged autos, and increasing violence mark the plot, but the prose lacks consistent clarity and transition. For series fans. (c) Copyright 2010.
