Carl is a Yankee cop in a small Texas border town. Isabella is a beautiful Mexican woman whom everyone in town loves, including the hapless Pete and the wealthy and powerful Jack...but most of all, Carl. Part romance, part police procedural, In the Shadow of El Paso contains two short stories by Frank Zafiro. Both explore love, race, class and the ambiguity that exists on the southern border.
