A vicious, insatiable psychopathic rapist is pursued through the avenues and alleyways of East L.A. by a determined female cop in Joseph P. DeSario’s suspenseful first novel. They call him El Castigo del Barrio, and Detective Brenda Collins goes undercover in fishnets and halter tops to serve as bait for the madman. Meanwhile, at the Church of St. John, former POW, Father Cedric Anselm dispenses brutal penance to his parishioners. Could there be a connection between the fanatical cleric and the madman haunting the barrio? “Extraordinary…. A magnetic new voice in thriller fiction. Uncompromising, explicit.” –Publishers Weekly “Powerful, gripping and highly suspenseful…. A throat-catching thriller.” —San Diego Union
Joseph P. DeSario was the author of the acclaimed thrillers Sanctuary and Limbo. He was also the coauthor, along with Tom Tripodi, of Crusade: Undercover Against the Mafia and KGB. He died in 2016.
