Publishers Weekly: Starred Review to EL GAVILAN

After four Hector Lassiter novels, this December brings a standalone from Tyrus Books: a thriller centered on illegal immigration and its effects on a small Ohio Town.

Publishers Weekly has given a starred review to EL GAVILAN, in part, saying, "As sobering and as urgent as tomorrow’s headlines, this searing novel by Edgar-finalist McDonald (Head Games) traces the struggle of the residents of fictional New Austin, Ohio, to cope with out-of-control illegal Latino immigrants...McDonald deftly balances his “now” against the “then” backstory as he dissects one of America’s most tormenting social problems.—Publisher’s Weekly
