Bloody Bead

By Helen Currie Foster and Manning Wolfe


Juan Agosto smells death at dawn in trash bins near Mrs. Wong’s home. A single white pop bead stuck in blood indicates foul play. Juan’s job as a trash collector in the suburbs of Denver didn’t prepare him for this, but his life before his escape from Sinaloa did. Will local cops Teresa Agosto and Joelle McVay be able to solve a horrific murder and find justice for the victim
