Manuel Ramos - Denver Noir Writer
(kuvo) - Denver mystery writer Manuel Ramos set his latest noir story "Desperado" in Denver, and he paints a vivid tale of, well, desperation. Subtitled, "A Mile High Noir," the book races through the streets of North Denver, stomping ground for Ramos, with both real and imagined landmarks, and characters you might know, or might not want to know.

Interestingly, the novel Desperado is built on an earlier short story, "The Skull of Pancho Villa," in the collection Hit List: The Best of Latino Mystery. One of Ramos' earlier characters (it's his eighth novel) also returns, lawyer Luis Montez.

(Music on this feature from Kinky - "Mas" and Charlie Haden "Moonlight" on the CD Nocturne.)
