It all starts with the murder of INS agent Kiko Vigil, shot by an unknown gunman in a Larimer Street bar in Denver where he was drinking with the wife of Elias Garza, a major smuggler of illegal immigrants. Private investigator Danny Mora, known to his oldest friends as Moony, is hired by a colleague of Vigil's to look into the shooting. Did Vigil make the fatal error of sleeping with Garza's beautiful wife, or is that just a cover story? Was the INS on the verge of ruining Garza's business? Moony's quest for the truth leads first to his old nemesis, Garza's sleazy attorney Victor Delgado. Soon the sleaze factor is surpassed by blood as the bodies begin to pile up. Like Manuel Ramos's earlier series of crime novels featuring Luis Montez, Moony's Road is populated by ageing idealists who remember the glory days of Chicano activism in the 1970s. This noir thriller tinged with sharp social commentary will attract new fans to an author known as a founder of the Chicano/Latino mystery genre.

When a ten-year-old boy befriends a mysterious hobo in his southern Colorado hometown in the early 1940s, he learns about evil in his community and takes his first steps toward manhood by attempting to protect his new friend from corrupt officials. Though a fictional story, "Alex and the Hobo" is written out of the life experiences of its author, Jose Inez (Joe) Taylor, and it realistically portrays a boy's coming-of-age as a Spanish-speaking man, who must carve out an honorable place for himself in a class-stratified and Anglo-dominated society. In this innovative ethnography, anthropologist James Taggart collaborates with Joe Taylor to explore how "Alex and the Hobo" sprang from Taylor's life experiences and how it presents an insider's view of Mexicano culture and its constructions of manhood. They frame the story (included in its entirety) with chapters that discuss how it encapsulates notions that Taylor learned from the Chicano movement, the farmworkers' union, his community, his father, his mother, and his religion. Taggart gives the ethnography a solid theoretical underpinning by discussing how the story and Taylor's account of how he created it represent an act of resistance to the class system that Taylor perceives as destroying his native culture.
