**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.

From Publishers Weekly

Mar 18, 2013 – The rambling plot of Lange s second crime novel will remind many of the work of Elmore Leonard. Desperate to escape her life as the caged mistress of violent Mexican drug lord Rolando, Luz plans carefully and waits for her moment. Preparation and ruthlessness let her vanish with a backpack full of money, leaving the corpses of two of Rolando s faithful employees in her wake. By the time Luz is missed, she has arranged to be ferried into the U.S. by Malone, a self-destructive drunk. Enraged, Rolando has El Apache retrieved from a Mexican prison and orders the reluctant criminal to use his American citizenship to follow Luz to the States and drag her back to Rolando. As an extra incentive, Rolando makes it clear that El Apache s wife and child will pay the price for failure. More polished than his first novel, This Wicked World, Lange s follow-up marks him as a crime novelist to watch.

Customer Reviews

Angel Baby

Loved this fast moving tale of cross border mayhem mixed with real tugs of family angst from a cast of mostly involuntary players in this several day breathless life or death dance laced with adrenaline.

Wow. Right on. That's mostly all I could say.

"Taken" in Tiajuana.

A woman escapes a Narco drug-lord, and will do anything to return to her daughter. This is a roller coaster ride through the underbelly of both sides of the Mexican border.
