The third of Simon Fellowes' Hollywood trilogy - after 'Don't Breathe the Air', and 'My Name is Ferdinand' - '10 Dead Mexicans' is a hard-hitting examination of contemporary America. Private Investigator, Boyd Avery, a man running from his past and unsure where to find his future, is caught up in a series of random events. Through them he encounters the extremes of Los Angeles society, both the A-list and the Z-list. Like a modern-day 'Chinatown', nothing is what it seems, the machinations of the people surrounding Boyd at first too shadowy to understand. But through dogged investigation, things start to unravel, Boyd uncovering a web of duplicitous behaviour that reaches far further than he imagined. Through his journey, he meets all manner of low-lifes and zany characters, people like him, who came to California searching for a dream, only to lose sight of themselves. '10 Dead Mexicans' is fast-paced, wry, witty and powerful. It holds a mirror up to the inequality that exists today, but takes the reader inside people lives, in doing so making them real and sympathetic. At the same time it never loses sight of delivering a compelling story.
