The Last Summer of the Death Warriors



Behind the Eyes cover




It surrounds Pancho. His father, in an accident. His sister, murdered. His own plans to trace the killer. And D.Q. – a guy Pancho’s age who is dying of cancer. That is, if he’ll ever shut up.


D.Q. is writing “The Death Warrior’s Manifesto,” a guide to living out his last days fully. He needs just one more thing: the love of the beautiful Marisol. But as Pancho tracks down his sister’s murderer, he finds himself falling for Marisol as well . . .


And choices that seem right and straightforward become tender, tentative, real. While D.Q. faces his own crisis of doubt, Pancho is inexorably drawn to a decision to revenge his sister and her death, or to embrace the way of the Death Warrior and choose life.
