A Florida Mystery Twenty Years in the Making

If you liked The Trespasser by Tana French, The Tuscan Child by Rhys Bowen, or New Year in Havana by Chanel Cleeton, you'll love The Miracle of St. Lazarus.

Miami, Florida 1992: A few weeks after Hurricane Andrew wreaks devastation and havoc across South Florida, a father and his infant daughter crash their car into a canal. The man's body is recovered, but his baby girl is never found.

Twenty-three years later: After reports of alleged sightings of the girl, the case is reopened by police. Detective Maria Duquesne has been assigned to the case, but she has very little in the way of clues. Is it really possible that the girl has not died? Or is this simply the persistence of a desperate mother who will not accept the death of her daughter?

A cozy mystery with a unique lens: Author Uva de Arag n provides a multifaceted portrait of the Latino communities of Miami and Hialeah, creating an exciting thriller that will appeal to readers who enjoy mysteries with female sleuths.

Uva de Arag n has published a dozen books of essays, poetry, short stories, and the novel Memoria del Silencio, which is now offered in its first translation into English. Some of her short stories and a play have also been translated and appear in textbooks and anthologies such as The Voice of the Turtle, Cuba: A Traveler's Literary Companion, Cubana, and Cuban-American Theater. The Miracle of St. Lazarus is the newest soon-to-be bestseller in her incredible literary career.
