Writers have always been fascinated by San Antonio - Stephen Crane, Frederick Law Olmstead, O. Henry, Oscar Wilde, Jack Kerouac. In Jay Brandon's San Antonio, races and ethnic groups blend easily, but someone from wealthy Olmos Park can spend a lifetime without ever visiting the city's poor west side. Estela Valenzuela bridges all areas of the city. Estela, whom one critic called a "mystic warrior princess," holds many answers but is looking for more. Her search unveils whole worlds within one city. Jay Brandon perfectly captures San Antonio in all its colorful craziness. Part mystery, part insider's guide, Milagro Lane is a wonderful romp through a wonderful city. -Rick Riordan,author of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians fantasy novels and the Tres Navarre mysteries. Jay Brandon is a successful attorney and an award-winning mystery novelist. He holds an MA in writing from Johns Hopkins University and a law degree from the university of Texas. All of his novels are set in San Antonio and South Texas. His extensive experience as an attorney with the DA's office in Bexar County and with the Fourth Court of Appeals has provided him with plenty of insights into the workings of the legal system, local politics, and the multicultural realities of the region. A native Texan, Brandon lives in San Antonio with his wife and three children - but not on Milagro Lane. (booksense)
