Land of Careful Shadows by award-winning author Suzanne Chazin is a powerful mystery full of passion and secrets that deals with a clash of cultures and familial relationships, and it’s full of drama, mystery, and raw emotions.
When the dead body of a Latino woman is found in a reservoir about fifty miles north of Manhattan, with a photo of a baby in her purse nearby, the police try to determine who the child is and if it is still alive. Along with the photo, they also find a disturbing note in the purse: “Go back to your country. You don’t belong here.”
Homicide detective Jimmy Vega is Latino too, so he knows how hard it can be for an outsider to fit into a close-knit town like Lake Holly. Vega is a highly respected officer of the law, and he is challenged and intrigued by Adele Figueroa, a passionate defender of immigrants’ rights. Vega must rethink everything he believes in order to uncover the truths about his town, his family, and himself.
Land of Careful Shadows is a tour de force of literary suspense and an intimate journey into the human heart.
