When Manuel de la Vega testified against his fellow officers in a corruption investigation within the Mexico City Police Department, he knew his old life was over. He fled the country, joining the police force in Cobalt City, center of the superhero world.
But when his cousin is accused of murder in a company-run border town, Manuel finds himself making a long-overdue return to Mexico. With a signed confession in the hands of the police, it might not matter how innocent she is.
It will take all of his craft and guile and the help of Manuel's half-panda assistant Snowflake to see that justice is done in Buena Rosa. And if all that fails, he may have no choice but to resurrect the life he thought he had left behind--that of the masked vigilante Gato Loco!
