08/17/11 MEDIA ALERT: Author describes immigrant struggles in new novel based on real events

Press Release

Author describes immigrant struggles in new novel based on real events

"The Lady in Blue: A Maria Chavez Mystery" by Jeanne Bonaca introduces readers to the world of border patrols and immigration

Author Jeanne Bonaca takes readers directly to the heart of the largest criminal cartel along the Mexican border in "The Lady in Blue: A Maria Chavez Mystery" (ISBN 0578069474). In this psychological suspense novel, Detective Maria Chavez and Border Patrol Agent Joe Carter risk their lives to investigate brutal murders committed by some of the area's most dangerous criminals.

The world of dog fighting, drug trades and preying on innocent immigrants is nothing new for Maria and Joe in their line of work, but the territory only seems to get more treacherous with each new assignment. When a child witness disappears, the stakes are raised for the pair and they are sent racing into the borderlands scarred by smuggling trails. Maria becomes the caretaker and figure of hope, a modern version of the mythical Lady in Blue, for those risking their lives for a better future in freedom.

But as Maria becomes more involved with the life and death struggles of the immigrants, her own childhood as an illegal immigrant flashes back. Unwillingly, she begins searching for clues about her early life and has startling revelations about her own desert crossing, forcing her to solve the dark puzzle that has haunted her life for years.

Bonaca extensively researched border relations and the problems surrounding the United States' southern border before writing "The Lady in Blue: A Maria Chavez Mystery." Bonaca accurately reveals what is happening along our border with Mexico and dedicates her work to the men and women who entrusted her with their brave stories.

"The Lady in Blue: A Maria Chavez Mystery" is available in paperback and Kindle e-book format at Amazon.com. Additional information is available on Bonaca's website, bonacabooks.com.

About the Author:
In addition to being a Professor Emerita of English at the University of Hartford in Connecticut, writer-photographer Jeanne Bonaca has traveled extensively in the American Southwest, documenting in words and images the landscape, culture and borderland human drama. Her translation of the work of Italian poet Marcello Fabbri, "The Light of Memory," was awarded Italy's Il Premio Casalguidi.
