Announcement: Of Paradise & Purgatory, by Stephen del Mar

Of Paradise and PurgatoryQSFer Stephen del Mar has a new MM magical realism book out:

Going home can be hell, even if it’s paradise.

Victor Cruz returns to the Arizona town where he grew up to bury his estranged father, and dispose of the family’s ancestral home. The plan: get in and get out. A stop at Santo Domingo’s Lady of Guadalupe chapel compels him to offer up a simple prayer, “May I do what needs to be done,” and starts a landslide of events-old friends, old loves, and who is in collusion with the murderous Cumero Cartel? “Of Paradise and Purgatory” is a contemporary tale with a seasoning of faith & magical realism.
