I've read just about every Anaya book. This was my least favorite

3.5 stars. It's hard to believe that the person who wrote this cheezy detective novel also wrote Bless Me, Ultima. But it's true.

Not the strongest of Anaya's books. I think he got a bit distracted by his shaman lore and history research to where the story became more just filler this time. The result is still ok, but some of the dialogue sections are really awkward.

I read this in college for a Latino Studies class. For some reason it's been coming to mind often in the past year or so..but all I could remember was that I loved a book that had something to do with a golden fish! Today I finally figured out the name of the book that keeps tugging at my memory. I will be reading this again. Soon!
