"Tomas Cruz swore he would never be like his father, an abusive cocaine junky whose gangland exploits are notorious throughout the underbelly of northern Argentina. When Samuel Cruz is sentenced to thirteen years in prison, he leaves a laundry list of unfinished cartel business. Seba, Tomas's revered older brother, has no choice but to abandon his straight life and take over his father's underworld debt. But Tomas has been able to stay out of the criminal life completely-until now. Now, just in time for the holidays, Seba has been arrested, and the ruthless cartel boss is holding his wife and daughter as collateral. Tomas is forced to choose between protecting his family and his soul as he assumes the to-do list where Seba left off, plunging into the shocking depravity of the cartel to track a drug deal gone wrong. On a bloody quest for underworld justice that will take him from a nightmarish bar staffed by teenage sex slaves to the murky depths of the Parana River, Tomas discovers himself capable of violence he never thought possible. He must ask himself if he really is his father's son . . . and he may not like the answer. This Christmas-set thriller, written in evocative, almost dreamlike prose, is as much about gory shoot-outs as it is about escaping a toxic family to find self-fulfillment and freedom. Argentinian noir wunderkind Nicolás Ferraro's first novel to be translated into English, Cruz was a finalist for the prestigious Dashiell Hammett Award for Best Crime Novel"-- Provided by publisher.
