When the governor of New Mexico is found drowned in the Bath House at Jemez Springs, Albuquerque private eye Sonny Baca is called in to investigate. As he soon learns, murder is only the beginning of the evil that Sonny must sort out. Someone has planted a bomb in the Valles Caldera, not far from the Los Alamos National Laboratories, and it is set to detonate in just a few hours. Is this the work of terrorists or is Sonny's old nemesis, Raven, mixed up in the plot? In a race against the clock Sonny encounters ghosts and sorcerers, beautiful women and environmental activists, and developers and politicians who are quarrelling over the state's most precious resource, its water.

MEDIA REVIEWS
." . . a who dunnit that you won't want to put down."
"In "Jemez Spring," Anaya is at his descriptive best. . . "Jemez Spring" is a good read."
"Anaya's characters are fully-realized portraits, people we see and know. Sonny Baca couldn't have asked for a better way to end his career, but he'll be sorely missed."
""Jemez Spring" is meant to appeal to readers of conventional mystery novels, but there is nothing conventional about it. . it taps into primal and universal fears and longings but plays them out in a uniquely New Mexican setting."
""Jemez Spring" again blends the Spanish, Mexican, and Indian cultures that made the three earlier works in the series such good reads. Anaya is at his best when writing about the people of New Mexico, their traditions and their lives and how they clash with the influx of Anglos."
"A tale that will appeal to any reader with an interest in the American Southwest and its culture, both past and present. Not just a mystery, but a tale of supernatural, myth, and cultural history. . . This is a multi-layered mystery with a case of well-drawn characters, a great combination of the old and the new. Enjoy the adventure. I certainly did."
..."unique and exciting...Readers thirsty for philosophy and the supernatural will devour this book."
.,."unique and exciting...Readers thirsty for philosophy and the supernatural will devour this book."
"A novel that. . definitely keeps the reader turning the pages. . [A] story that embodies interesting characters, smooth writing style and a suspenseful plot."
