Enrique “Kiki” Casillo has written a novel, The Dead of Summer, in which he tackles the vulnerability of immigrants crossing into the United States illegally from Mexico and the dangers they face. In the novel a woman is attacked and raped by a Border Patrol officer who also kills her two children. Enrique elicits the legend of La Llorona as the woman seeks revenge. The reader may ask is this a border mystery or a border horror story? Latinopia put this question to the author.
