Winner of the International Association of Crime Writers' Dashiell Hammett Award: A woman goes on the run in this intense and cinematic thriller by an award-winning writer.

To escape the awful life she has descended into, Luz plans carefully. She takes only the clothes on her back, a Colt .45, and all the money in her husband's safe. The corpses in the hallway weren't part of her plan. Luz needs to find the daughter she left behind years earlier, but she knows she may die trying. Her husband is El Principe , a key player in a high-powered drug cartel, a business he runs with the same violence he has used to keep Luz his perfect, obedient wife. With the pace and relentless force of a Scorsese film, ANGEL BABY is the newest masterpiece from one of the most ambitious and talented crime novelists at work today.

Be careful, this is one terrific book.

ChristchurchLib Jul 08, 2013

"In the gritty, violent, lean tradition of Don Winslow or Elmore Leonard, author Richard Lange serves up trouble in the form of Luz, who escapes her husband - the head of Tijuana's brutal drug cartel - with only the clothes on her back, a gun, and money from their safe. She hires a self-destructive California surfer to sneak her across the border, but there's an enforcer on her trail - and if he doesn't bring her back, his wife and kid will die. Every memorable character in this riveting book is driven by desperation; fans of Winslow's Savages won't want to miss Lange's Angel Baby." July 2013 Thrillers and Suspense newsletter
