Introducing Tom Aragon, a fast-talking Mexican-American attorney turned private investigator, who is sent by his boss to track down a wealthy client’s philandering ex-husband in Mexico. His boss’ good idea of sending a Mexican to Mexico soon proves less than a sure thing as Aragon encounters crooked expats, land scams, and dead-end after dead-end in this quixotic and very entertaining homage to Chandler and Hammett.

Gilda Decker needs a new bag, what with her second husband being suddenly crippled and her ex-husband hiding himself and his money somewhere in the hinterlands of Mexico. Gilda’s recently retained lawyer, Tom Aragon, Mexican himself, is the best man for the job. But the deeper Aragon digs into her ex-husband’s past the more dangerous his job becomes.

One of Millar’s few reoccurring characters and her only foray into the tradition of Chandler and Hammett, Tom Aragon, ranks among her best creations. A sarcastic but talented young lawyer with a few rough edges, Aragon finds himself navigating one entitled nest of vipers after another, not to mention racial prejudice.
