  • "Inventive...Ybarra brings us through the process with the objectivity and forensic eye of a true crime writer, allowing glimpses of poignancy... the mother's grace and courage in the face of death is captured by her daughter... The writing sparkles throughout... Ybarra has done herself and her family proud in a story that is full of light and shade."

    Sarah Gilmartin, Irish Times
