He explores the crossings and translations people make in their minds and language as they move from one country to another, especially when there's no going back.

Leaving behind her life in Mexico to search for her brother, she is smuggled into the US carrying a pair of secret messages--one from her mother and one from the Mexican underworld"--Publisher's description.
