Five short stories about Emilia Cruz, Amato s mystery series featuring Mexico s first female detective The first shows Emilia s struggle to get her detective badge The second shows the genesis of Emilia s binder of Las Perdidas , the cold cases of missing women that Emilia keeps for herself and occasionally investigates when she has time All the stories predate Cliff Diver, and the last one is the original Emilia Cruz story that was later expanded to become Cliff Diver, book 1 of the series Great collection. Emilia Cruz is the only female detective in her local police force She has to prove to the men that she is up to the job, their equal These five short stories follow her challenges The crimes, the drug gangs, the aggressors, and, not least, the victims The stories are all individual but lead the reader through Emilia s challenges, her struggles and her successes She is a strong character, both in her fight for acknowledgement and the way she is drawn by the author.This is an excellent introduction to Carmen Amato s books and I will definitely be looking out for. A prequel to the stories I have already read I read it to gain insight to the Emilia Cruz character The stories seem incomplete but they all hold true to the bravery and sensitivities that I enjoy about this Acapulco Detective.
