Abigail in Gangland
Welcome to Abigail Thrasher's world, where the neighbors are strange, the rules have changed, and falling in love can get you killed. Abigail's nephew Luke should know. He's back in Texas-after 30 years as an artist in Manhattan-to cope with his daffy old aunt, who stands on her porch and hurls invectives at a gang across the street called the Latin Blades. Amidst the mayhem, Luke seeks love in the classifieds, finding some dangerous females, and takes Abigail on a dicey trip to Mexico. He's fated to be smitten by Raquel Acevedo, the sultry mother of a troubled teen whose gang name is Cobra. And then there's Winston Walsh, the ruling class attorney who holds the key to Luke's inheritance.
