After the death of her former lover, Ed Jeski, Tucson investigator Del Shannon is hesitant to take on the case of a missing child. But six-year-old Aurea Lara is rumored to possess prophetic visions, and Del discovers she may know something about Jeski’s death. Plunging across the Mexican border, Del joins forces with La Banda, a group fighting to infiltrate the compound of Aurea’s violent drug-lord uncle. Desert shootouts and cruel betrayals make Del question whether Aurea’s dark visions might just be coming true.
