Howtown - Michael Nava The best part of this Henry Rios novel is the ethical, moral and justice dilemma Henry is facing. Rios has made peace with all three of these with pain and time. But the call for help from his estranged sister to defend his childhood best friend brother makes Henry face those issues again. Defending the almost indefensible, a child molester accused of murder, Henry untangles dark secrets and hangs on to the notion that justice is important even if the person is morally and ethically no worth it. Nearly 4 stars.
