"Set across Mexico City in a variety of neighborhoods, the stories feature acast of characters as diverse as the city, from homeless people to young children to innocent passersby.This is a strong collection, both for the way it showcases outstanding short fiction in the noir style and forthe way it demonstrates how a strong sense of place can drive a narrative." --Booklist, Feb. 15, 2010
