Eighteen mysteries by a mix of prominent and lesser-known Latino/Latina authors take readers on strange, suspenseful, and sometimes even creepy journeys.


The stories' high-school-aged protagonists encounter a variety of puzzling situations, ranging from supernatural visitors to all-too-human criminals, the latter including petty thieves, kidnappers, and sinister sociopaths.


The mix of realistic and fantastic mysteries, combined with the wide range of tone and mood, guarantees broad reader appeal for this impressive collection.

“Cortez complements her adult level Hit List: The Best of Latino Mystery (2009) with 18 new tales (from a largely different set of Latino/Latina authors) featuring teen characters and concerns. Overall, a consistent, well-crafted collection.”
