Book description
Even if it takes an eternity, he will make amends....


Los Angeles is stunned when a priest is attacked by a woman who confesses to having murdered her own son. At the same time, Angel Investigations turns up reports of a madwoman floating in and out of gang fights, playgrounds, and flophouses populated by teen runaways...she's everywhere. She is a bruja -- a witch, and the embodiment of La Llorona -- the "Weeping Woman" of Spanish lore. In any place she alights, a trail of death lingers.

The priest soon lapses into a coma, but Angel and company have their hands full with other matters: Doyle is wracked with a vision of a young mother and her son in danger, out by the docks. Meanwhile, Cordy is busy searching for a big-shot producer's missing wife. The trio is running out of time. Angel has to find a possible connection between the wife who's gone MIA and the mother on the docks before he himself is stopped -- by a phantom whose mere touch brings death itself....

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0743407016, Mass Market Paperback)

Even the streetwise populace of Los Angeles is stunned when a priest is attacked by a woman who confesses to the murder of her own son. At the same time, Angel Investigations turns up reports of a madwoman who appears at gang fights, playgrounds and flophouses frequented by teenage runaways...She seems to be everywhere. She is a 'bruja' - a witch - and the living embodiment of La Llorona - the 'weeping woman' who plays such a central role in Spanish lore. Wherever she is, a trail of death follows her. The priest lapses into a coma. Doyle is wracked by visions of a young mother and her son in danger, down by the dockside. Cordelia finds herself on the trail of a film producer's missing wife. It is up to Angel to find the connection between them before he is stopped by the phantom whose touch brings death...and all of them are running out of time.
