About the Book

Lan Ark in the Spring: The pan de sal Girl is a crime-thriller, written by the author H. Valencia. The conservative town of Lan Ark was the last place one would expect a fifteen year old, from the “old part of town”, to be murdered. When a group of her classmates are arrested, the District Attorney’s office as well as the general public are all but convinced of their guilt. In this twisting tale, Kyle Makoa, a middling attorney at a middling law firm, and his mysterious investigator Benjamin Serrano suspect that the authorities have made a mistake. As the first day of the trial nears, the state of affairs is further complicated by a sequence of peculiar happenings. Within the next few weeks there is a precarious relationship between the defense attorney and Reena Escueta (the victim’s mother), an attack by a naughty ungoy, a hunger strike from within an all-female Juvenile Detention Center, a series of coded messages, a string of malevolent spells cast by practitioners of an ancient form of sorcery known as dark kulam, and more. In a town where very little is as it seems, will the truth of a young girl’s murder be revealed?
