Honey hasn't seen her mother, Marianne, in more than two years. She drives deep into the once-prosperous border region of the Oro Desert for a surprise visit, only to discover that Marianne has vanished.

Alone in an unforgiving environment populated with hostile locals, she meets Ch vez, a young "coyote" or human trafficker, who convinces Honey he knows of her mother's whereabouts and agrees to take her there -- for a price. As they make their way through the Oro's brutal no-man's-land they are tracked by Ocho, a teenage bounty hunter determined to recruit Ch vez. And then there is Baez, Marianne's wizened Shepherd-coyote mix, whose death and life intimately intersect with Honey and Ch vez's search for Marianne and who tells the story of the Oro Desert as it slowly comes apart.

Told from three distinct perspectives, El Ni o is an intricately constructed and starkly written novel from a bold and inventive new writer.
