Publisher's Summary

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.

Realigning heaven to hell

A taut, well paced cross-border triller, on corruption and slavery in the Santa Inez Valley by Santa Barbara. Pragmatic Roman Catholism and stoic migrants are blended with violent farmers and their criminal justice system. If not for Fr. Chavez heaven on earth might continue to profit from unsolved crimes.

Meh, Lackluster "Mystery"

This book had a lot of drama but never really delivered. There are a lot of characters to keep track of and most are not that compelling. It was hard to really get into this book. I'm sure some people will love it, though.

Memorable listen

Storywise, the publisher's summary is a good overview. I don't want to write spoilers.

This book didn't really grab me as out-of-the-ordinary when I was listening. However it is a good story and I did listen to the end.

That being said, I have found myself remembering things about it months after it was finished. I listen to many books. Sometimes I have to look back at the publisher's summary to remember what a book was about. Sometimes I have to search my library to find out if I have read a certain title. The books that I am still thinking about over time are the ones that seem to have something special; this is one of them.

I am happy to see that the second book in the series is available and am looking forward to listening to it.
