A blazing redhead, a loner with a cabbie's license and a mean volleyball spike, Carlotta Carlyle has a talent for trouble. Tonight her mysterious client speaks broken English and clutches a newspaper detailing the discovery of a mutilated body in the Boston Fens. The corpse has an immigrant's green card and that card, the client claims, belong to her. She wants it back. But who is she? Where has she gone? And why do all the leads connect her to Paolina, Carlotta's charming urban "little sister"? Paolina won't talk. And suddenly Carlotta is plunged deep inside the desperate world of illegal aliens, the cold-hearted immigration agents who hunt them down, and the deadly "coyotes" who lead even innocent young girls to the slaughter.

Almost didn't read it after the first couple of chapters. I plodded on through annoying info on the protagonist playing volleyball, etc.. However, it soon picked up and I was hooked. It illustrates the misery of illegals who only wish to have a safe and better life in the U.S. Certainly not the best book I've read, but it's a good one for a fast read/fill-in between books.
