Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Home Killings, a slick, elegantly crafted mystery from creative writing professor Marcos McPeek Villatoro (The Holy Spirit of My Uncle's Cojones), mixes practical-minded Latina feminism and Latin American myth with the international drug trade. When rookie detective Romilia Chacon connects her first investigation to a serial killer already in jail, Nashville's police department isn't happy. The wry, likable heroine's astute and dogged detection seems to make some public figures uncomfortable. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
