Out of a brothel in the border town of La Paz, Arizona, Ava Varazo works her way up to Indio Desacato, a rich racketeer from Sinaloa, Texas. Enamored of Ava, Desacato has asked her to be the queen of his own house, bragging that he never keeps less than half a million dollars in cash at his mansion.

The setup is perfect for a double cross, and Ava enlists the help of DelRay Mudo, another of her admirers. Even DelRay can guess that more than one trap can be sprung on this hunt, but he can't forget Ava, and his life doesn't offer much else other than following her. Caught between the disappointments of their past and their dreams of the future, the not-quite-lovers of "The Sinaloa Story," like the rest of us, fight to survive what life has given them.
