Was it a spectre from the past, some Aztec revenant that had inspired the "Black Widow" to kill her husband? Or did these chilling murders have more to do with the rights of property and inheritance, and mere greed? Who better than Gloria Damasco, that indomitable detective with a flair for clairvoyance, to unravel this intricate and pulsing plot, which winds its way from an exotic Day of the Dead celebration in San Francisco to the even more exotic sites and customs of Tepozotlan, an Indian village high in the mountains above Cuernavaca? Part thriller, part exploration of myth and history, Black Widow's Wardrobe is a page-turner.
"A nicely curlicued plot--delving backward into family history and mysticism--that keeps the pages flying. Strongly recommended." "Set in California and Mexico, the novel explores the two lands' intertwined history while engaging the reader with a tale of bloody retribution." "A nicely curlicued plot---delving backward into family history and mysticism---that keeps the pages flying. Strongly recommended." "Part mystery, part history, part travelogue, part spiritual speculation---a busy, many-layered invention stuffed within an inch of its many lives."
