“Double Cross on the Rio”: a compelling dark portrait of faith and folly. “Double Cross on the Rio” is the creation of published author Laura Hill, a married mother of two and an English teacher for a Native American reservation in northwest Washington State.

Hill writes, “A battle for souls wages on in the small South Texas town of San Vidro. The demon in charge of the area, Otis Bub, utilizes all methods at his disposal to trap souls. One of his many scams to lead souls to perdition involves a crucifix found floating in the Rio Grande that many take to be a miracle. Through the help of a dimwitted deputy, Harold, and his sheriff, Jude, the crucifix finds its way to San Vidro. The demon thinks Jude and his flaky wife, Sally, to be useful pawns, but a certain Angel Bueno throws a wrench in to the plans of Otis Bub. This darkly humorous story explores issues of faith in a modern society rife with dissent about the proper care of Mother Earth and its inhabitants.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Laura Hill’s new book is a provocative, entertaining glimpse into a web of human conflict where faith, greed, fear, and ignorance collide in this richly textured narrative.

Culturally vibrant, astutely observed, and compellingly written, Hill offers a work of fiction that will nevertheless make readers a little more conscious of the spiritual warfare raging on invisibly around them.
