Lowe's first novel ... features an unusual pair of New Mexican sleuths. Burro, a schizophrenic, is susceptible to psychotic visions ... a gift that comes in handy when he's working on a case with his PI partner, Cinnamon. Cinnamon uses the income from their investigations ... to try to track down the mother who abandoned her decades earlier. Mirage, who blacked out after a party and woke to find her brother, Lonnie, stabbed to death, fears she killed Lonnie. The far from run-of-the-mill leads and Buro's distinctive investigative methods are the book's main draw.

Tower Lower, author
Tower Lowe (aka Donna Tower Pecherer) is published in Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine and is the author of mystery novellas and a full-length novel featuring Cinnamon and Burro. She lives in New Mexico. The search for Momma in this series reflects the author's real life story because her own mother died when she was 13, and so she "searched" for her mother most of her life. Tower Lowe was a real person and Donna Tower Pecherer was named for her. Tower suffered from epilepsy, and died as a result of burns suffered during an epileptic seizure. All the stories include individuals with disabilities, including Burro, who partners with Cinnamon to solve crimes.
