Book Review: Illegal, a novel by Paul Levine


This suspense thriller about the hazardous journey that a woman and her young son make to the U.S. from Mexico is as riveting and suspenseful as it is shocking, to anyone not familiar with illegal immigration issues along the border.

The harsh reality portrayed by Paul Levine in his new book makes the journeys he describes seem all too real - full of danger, despair, and death, even for some who make it across the border.

This really sounds like a good book! I saw it on some list-or-other recently, and since I'm getting into this genre lately, I looked for it at my nearby library, but couldn't find it. It sounds like I'm right to want to read it. Thanks for the great review!
