    Crossers PDF à Hardcover crossers pdf, Crossers KindleMesmerizing blending of the past and present Caputo artfully alternates between the two Not sure which I enjoyed the tales of Castle's grandfather or Castle's present life but violence is the common denominator You know things are headed for a train wreck but surprisingly you think it might not be so bad Lots of plot paths I envisioned didn't happen and I was left surprised and satisfied with the ending Really n

    Crossers PDF à Hardcover crossers pdf, Crossers KindleMaybe a five star rating is one star too high but I live right in the middle of the area where all this unfolds This is a real place and many of the people you meet there are straight out of the book The week before I opened the book I was talking to a neighbor as a group of wetbacks went marching through the trees behind him Not too far into the book I read a description that matched that vision to a TCaputo mentions a restaurant called Santos in the village of Patagonia While eating breakfast I asked the waitress Have you heard of 'Santos' She explained that 'Santos' was now 'Mercedes' which I could almost see from my table not surprising as you can seen most of Patagonia from any other place in Patagonia The one thing Caputo does not mention is that Patagonia is a speed trap so if you visit be forewarnedThis may b

    Crossers PDF à Hardcover crossers pdf, Crossers KindleAdmittedly this is the first I've read of Caputo's fiction I did read Rumor of War decades ago I chose this upon learning of an upcoming publication of a new novel that shared similar themes with this one and found this riveting Particularly in today's volatile climate regarding the US border with Mexico Vengeance that spans generations and twists that ensue make this an exciting thriller but it also contains a contemplative examina
