Jemez Spring happens in springtime at Jemez Springs
Jemez Spring accords closure as the final title in the Sonny Baca Mystery Quartet written by Rudolfo Alfonso Anaya (born October 30, 1937), as:
• the forty-seventh state’s anthologist, counselor, editor, essayist, folklorist, historian, mythologist, novelist, storyteller;
• the Land of Enchantment’s living treasure; and
• the University of New Mexico’s emeritus literature professor.
It becomes as Book #4 the conclusive successor to:
• Book #1, Zia Summer;
• Book #2, Rio Grande Fall; and
• Book #3, Shaman Winter.
This final, fourth installment culminates the detective novel series’ healing cycle of:
• exsanguination cured with earth absorbing Gloria’s blood;
• home invasions healed with Cristina’s and Rita’s rescue; and
• infanticide remediated with Rita’s and Sonny’s unborn twins populating the latter’s nagual (guardian animal) realms.
