In La Frontera, Sam Hawken illuminates the darkest sides of the illegal migration issue, the cost in human life and dignity for the border crossers and the thin line of defenders who stand against the tide on the American side.
“A beautiful compassionate gruelling novel, as ferocious to read as it is soul wrenching.” – Ken Bruen
“I must confess that having read both of Hawken’s previous books, I was not expecting any deviation from the accomplished and gripping style that permeates his writing. I was quite right in this assumption, as La Frontera, merely strengthens my admiration for his writing with its perfect rendition of not only location, but the sustained and probing characterisation that underscores a compelling plot. Excellent.” – Raven Crime Reads
“A fascinating, tense and engaging read.” – CrimeSquad
“This brilliantly written, dramatic but vicious novel will keep you on tenterhooks all the way to the end.” – Shots
“La Frontera is a worthy addition to Hawken’s increasingly impressive portfolio.” Crime Fiction Lover ****
“A sprawling novel imbued not only with violence, heat, and murder, but also sadness and humanity. Mr. Hawken’s words will keep you hooked until the very last sentence. One of the finest crime novels this year.” – Sam Millar for New York Journal of Books
