    In Make It Go Away, the second book in the trilogy, Latino Internet sleuth A.J. Amador seeks answers in the death of an innocent immigrant when a heavily armed SWAT team storms the wrong house under a no-knock warrant. A compassionate gesture by A.J. to help a young immigrant claim the body of the dead man-his uncle-leads him into a complex case when Denver officials stall the investigations in a secret effort to "make it go away." A.J. Amador, a private research investigator, is assigned to the case by the shadowy agency that contracts his services to uncover what really happened and to provide an in- depth narrative. His unorthodox investigation style upsets city officials as he digs for answers. He discovers flaws in the system that allows for the use of deadly force when none is called for. A.J. also realizes this is part of a pattern across the country as SWAT department become more aggressive in the war on drugs. Although he faces intimidating opposition, he is not without allies, to wit: Dominic Cortez and Manolo Marquez: his two best friends from boyhood-and fellow Marine Corps veterans-who stand with him at every turn of the case Connie Rivera: a beautiful newspaper columnist who covers the case for a local daily Eric Medina: a dedicated immigration lawyer who lends his formidable legal skills to combat the city's stonewalling Berta Holguin: a former Denver city councilwoman who organizes the community response to the tragedy, while calling in favors from inside city hall The Suarez Family: a kindly Peruvian clan-hoteliers in Breckenridge, Colorado-who help A.J. and his friends track down a key witness in the busy ski resort Last but not least, Gunny LaRue: a retired Marine Gunnery Sergeant who offers to provide muscle and firepower to his former recruits. While everything else plays out, A.J.'s secret agency (known by the nonsensical name of AEsperantu) operates in the background, providing resources the investigation needs to overcome the obstacles the city throws up to stall the case. A.J. is not completely at ease in his role with this private intelligence group, mainly because he's never had any physical contact with anyone associated with it. He was recruited online and signed a contract online. He gets assignments online and gets paid online. Everything is done over the Internet. Occasionally, he will have a real conversation with his contact and erstwhile editor, EJan, through VOIP. But that's it. A.J. stays with the organization primarily because he gets paid well. He also gets steady and interesting, if sometimes dangerous, assignments. He also hopes to get deeper on the inside and find out more about the group and its agenda. The action in Make It Go Away takes place against a background of Latino culture and customs. It is the second book in a trilogy entitled Latino Liturgy, which examines one segment of America's Latino Nation through the actions, thoughts, and opinions of A.J. and his cohorts. The trilogy presents slices of life in the fastest growing minority group in the U.S. The three books all use murder and mystery in the context of current events to lend social and philosophical commentary on American life from a Latino perspective. Latino Liturgy is part of a planned ten-volume set to be known as the A.J. Amador Mystery Series.
