From the Editor

Father Luis Chavez is one of the most original, thought-provoking characters I’ve encountered in a long time, someone who sees every nuance in the people around him. Having spent his youth in an East LA gang that was very, shall we say, Old Testament, he’s got survival skills he didn’t learn in a seminary. But through gang negotiations, stake-outs and gunfights, he retains a formidable drive to find justice for those who are so often ignored by society.

I wrestled with the contrast between Chavez’s steady faith and the harsh situations in which he finds himself, but ultimately I was fascinated by one of the book’s underlying questions: what happens in the darkest corners of the real world when someone takes his faith very seriously? When the Los Angeles DA’s office runs out of leads in the murder of a migrant worker with ties to Chavez’s parish, the young priest doesn’t just offer prayers—he takes action. Cynical DA Michael Story just wants to make sure he comes out of the scandal looking good, but Chavez knows that doing the right thing isn’t always pretty. He’s the real public servant here: he’s worried about the next person who needs help, not the next rung on the political ladder.

Chavez’s struggle for justice still has me captivated—no matter what comes next for this complex, conflicted character, I’m along for the ride.

- Kjersti Egerdahl, Editor


Product description

Product Description

Following his ordination as a priest, Father Luis Chavez returns to the mean streets of his youth, hoping to put his past behind him. But the brutal murder of a worker in Ventura County’s vast farm fields compels Luis to return to his criminal roots in order to unravel a massive conspiracy. Teaming up with Michael Story, an ambitious Los Angeles deputy DA, Chavez goes undercover as a farm laborer to bring down an immense human-trafficking ring tied to one of California’s most prominent and powerful families.

Fighting to stay on the path of the righteous while confronting evil at every turn, Father Chavez finds himself in a battle of good versus evil, with the souls of hundreds hanging in the balance.
