Beyond the fence lies America, the Land of the Free. But freedom doesn't come cheap.
Tonight, Arturo must gamble not only for his friend's freedom, but for his friend's life - while his own hangs in the balance.
Can he cheat Death herself?
A powerful and timely thriller set on the Mexican-US border.
Saint Death. She of pure bone and charcoal-black eye, she of absolute loyalty and neutral morality, holy patron to rich and poor, to prostitute and narco-lord, criminal and police-chief. A folk saint, a rebel angel, a sinister guardian.
I really enjoyed Marcus Sedgwick's strange and intriguing tale, told in rhythmical and compelling prose. David Almond
