Overview

Someone is adulterating saffron, the world's most expensive spice, and then stealing boats in San Pedro, California, to get it to buyers. When the boats start being blown up, a local fisherman investigates against the background of San Pedro's vibrant ethnic enclaves, the muscular water front, and scenes from the exotic vagabond spice's history. Murder, money and lust-what more does a good mystery need?

Joan Del Monte is at the top of her form as a storyteller, with perfect pitch for the flaws and vulnerabilities of her characters. She captures the reader from the first page to the head-snapping ending.
