Here's the buzz on my novel Barrio Imbroglio, available now on Amazon (click here).


Daniel Cubias is one of the wittiest, most relevant, and most perceptive writers in the world, if that¹s actually where he’s from. Cubias is part-philosopher, part-gunslinger, and total craftsman. He’s great. I will always be first in line to read anything he writes. A novel to be read with urgency.

—Mark Cirino, author of Name the Baby


This witty, gritty mystery pairs well with a plate of nachos and a shot of tequila! Investigating his cousin’s death, reluctant gumshoe Abraxas Hernandez encounters a succession of suspects as loco as their motives.

—Brenda Scott Royce, author of Monkey Star


What a great read! From the opening scene that explains the moment that changes Abraxas' life, I was sucked in. Highly entertaining with many twists and turns, this is a book you won't be able to put down. Cubias is a gifted writer whose novel is a must-read for anyone who loves mystery, humor and a good story.

At the end, this was one of those very special books you couldn't wait to read through, but also didn't want to end. Is there a next one for Abraxas, the reluctant detective, and his friend, Vic? I sure hope so. Because I will grab it again and recommend it (again) to anyone who'd listen. Fantastic, job, Daniel Cubias! What a first novel this is. Take a bow.
