For Edgar 'Lefty' Mendieta, the news of the murder of lawyer Bruno Canizales represents just another day at the office in the drug-ridden city of Culiacan.

La prueba del ácido by Elmer Mendoza( Book )

29 editions published between 2010 and 2018 in 4 languages and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When the mutilated body of Mayra Cabral de Melo, a well-known stripper, is found by the side of a dusty road, detective Edgar "Lefty" Mendieta has personal reasons for bringing the culprit to justice. Mayra had no shortage of ardent, deluded, and downright dangerous admirers, and Lefty himself is haunted by one steamy night he spent in her generous company. So begins an investigation that will bring him ever closer to the murderous world of the narcos, who are waging a war of bloody attrition against the Mexican state. The country is a powder keg, waiting for a spark, and Mendieta is about to enter the darkest days of his life. Corrupt politicians, failed boxers, and unscrupulous arms dealers all lie in wait along the path to justice. But none of this can prepare him for his run-in with the F.B.I., when the father of the President of the United States is attacked while on vacation in Mexico. For all these perils it is the weight of his own murky past that Lefty finds hardest to bear. And as he scratches around for clues, faced with a gallery of suspects who all have a motive and none of whom is a stranger to the dark arts of murder, the reappearance of Samantha Valdés, now the boss of the Cartel del Pacífico, adds one more jagged piece to an already unsolvable puzzle"--

"Edgar 'Lefty' Mendieta can't believe his luck. An old flame has returned to Mexico with a son he knew nothing about - it seems that a happy family life is finally beckoning for our careworn hero. The only snag is that Jason Mendieta wants to follow in his father's footsteps... Meanwhile, the war that is raging between Mexico's drug cartels takes on a renewed fury. The lover of Samantha Valdes, the head of the Pacific Cartel, is murdered in her hotel bedroom, and Valdes' unquenchable thirst for revenge unleashes a wave of killings across the country. Lefty is preoccupied with another pressing matter - some lunatic has taken to bumping off dentists with a heavy calibre pistol - but a personal connection with Valdes sees him drawn into her investigation. The truth behind her lover's murder will underline that old adage: revenge is a dish best served cold."--Provided by publisher
