In "The Hidden Light of Mexico City", attorney Eddo Cortez Castillo's unexpected relationship with housemaid Luz de Maria Alba Mora becomes a dangerous vulnerability when he investigates links between the Minister for Public Security and Mexico's most elusive drug cartel leader. But what Eddo doesn't know is that Luz is trapped at the bottom of Mexico's social ladder, where broken dreams and family poverty have brought her to the breaking point.
As presidential elections near, Eddo's investigation will uncover a political double-cross fueled by drug money. He'll follow the money trail deep into the underworld of Mexico's drug culture, where violence buys loyalty, votes are for sale, the odds are against survival, and only a woman whose name means Light of Mary can guide him out.
