    One thought on “La Frontera”

    1. Following in the tradition of his first two novels, The Dead Women of Juarez and Tequilla Sunset, Hawken brings another glorious and affecting Mexico influenced novel with La Frontera Cleverly intertwining three distinct and separate stories, Hawken manages to encompass the essential ills of South American and Mexican life, showing the desperation of those keen to enter America in the search of a better life, those that feed financially on this desperation, and the forces of law and order who se [...]

    5. A well constructed, thoughtful book which looks as if it s a crime novel but is really about the human face of migration Set in the US, a Mexican border town and a small mountain town in El Salvador, at the heart of the story is a mystery A man is found shot in the back in a remote spot Nearby is a rape tree.The lives of three people play a part in the events of that night Ana is a Texas Ranger patrolling the US border, keeping angry ranchers happy and trying not to fall in love with Presidio or [...]

    6. Good descriptive skills, fleshing out interesting characters But the 3 converging stories never really go anywhere
