In VALLEY OF SHADOWS, Sheriff Solitario Cisneros maintains order, even when the Rio Grande River changes course and strands his protectorate, the Mexican town of Olvido, on the Texas territory. But slowly, bit by bit, something cruel is present when several families are kidnapped and murdered. Who is committing the crimes, and why? VALLEY retells Solitario’s life as a soldier in the Mexican army, protecting the lifeblood of his people and the residents of a small town with a mix of settlers. Solitaire may have to rely on the powerful magics of his sombrero, a belt and another talisman to set the town back on its feet.
