The title story, "La Santa Muerte," is the first literary presentation of this cult figure that is worshipped by more than two million people in Mexico. In Mexico the cult of Saint Death is rapidly growing. This female grim reaper, considered a saint by followers but Satanic by the Catholic Church, is worshipped by people whose lives are filled with danger and/or violence: criminals, gang members, transvestites, sick people, drug addicts and families living in rough neighborhoods. This is required reading for anyone who wants to know about the world of Saint Death.
All the stories in this book are gripping and original, the writing is powerful and original.

I was expecting a lot more out of this book. The prose is in general poor. In the second story is hard to understand what the writer proposes. It contains spelling mistakes and takes quotes out from the Iliad and Odissey that are totally out of place since mingles lofty poetry with nearly decadent prose.
