The Sinaloa Story tells of DelRay Mudo and Ava Varazo, two down-and-outs looking for a reasonable life and maybe even a little redemption in a corrupt and violent world. Ava is a Mexican prostitute, beautiful and no victim of circumstance. When DelRay falls in love with her at the drive-in whorehouse where she is the prize, she seizes the chance to break free.
They take off for Sinaloa ,Texas, the lone-dog state where nothin’ good ever happens. The far-out border flunkies they meet — Thankful Priest, the one-eyed former football player- Indio Desacato, Ava’s pimp and a small-town racketeer- Arkadelphia Quantrill Smith, an octogenarian whose father marched with Shelby in the Iron Brigade- and many others — fill out the sinister and electrifying ride.
