Ex-priest and physicist Danny Capistrano sells salvation, smuggling the newly-deceased into the underworld. Trafficking souls isn’t a breeze, but Danny’s the best there is. Who cares if he’s in debt to the gills, his girlfriend just split, and his estranged daughter thinks he’s a complete asshole? But when a valuable soul slips through his fingers, Danny finds himself in the cross-hairs of his cartel bosses. To clear his name, Danny returns to San Adriano, gateway city to the land of the dead. Unearthing a plot more sinister than stray spirits, he teams up with scientific prodigy Cali—who also happens to be that same estranged daughter. Now saving his reputation (and avoiding the business end of a meat grinder) might just mean redeeming himself with his daughter, too. Never mind that he’ll need to outwit terrifying immigration agents, hustle an undead six-foot rodent, and crack open the beautifully grotesque underworld itself. With Cali’s forgiveness and personal absolution on the line, Danny has to get this one thing right. And there’s a first time for everything.
