Lucha Corpi. Black Widows Wardrobe (1999) 193 pp. [tpo]
Publishers description: When Gloria Damasco decided to take part in San Franciscos traditional Day of the Dead procession, she didnt realize shed soon be encountering both a convicted killer—Oaklands notorious Black Widow—and a bizarre abduction by two costumed riders on horseback. As Gloria attempts afterwards to solve the puzzle of Licia Lecuonas murder of her husband Peter, the trail leads her from the fog-shrouded but familiar Bay Area south to the remote, sunlit peaks of the Sierra de Tepoztlán … and perhaps, she fears, back in time to a mysterious and violent encounter as ancient as Mexico itself.
Setting: Oakland, San Francisco, Mexico
