Who abandoned this little innocent child? Leon wants to save the baby but his brother, Booth is killed. Who killed Booth? Perhaps Leon trying to save the baby?Burro has visions and is using them to try and find the baby, that is, if there is one. There is a web that needs to be unwound and Cinnamon and Burro are hard at it. They're not only searching for a baby but a killer and the main search of the book, Momma. The author gives so much in her storytelling and descriptions. She has the right setting for her mysteries, New Mexico just has that perfect air about it.
