Case XI: Prelude

Case XI: Prelude

 October is always an interesting month in Albuquerque. The month starts with Balloon Fiesta, a colorful and exciting international event.  This year, Albuquerque joined a handful of cities that have abandoned Columbus Day in favor of Indigenous Peoples Day.  As October progresses, New Mexico begins to focus on its major Holiday, Dia de los Muertos, the Day of the Dead.  It is a complex celebration of religious and pagan traditions often with sinister activities unlike the candy-filled and highly commercial Halloween.  As the Day approaches, there are strange things afoot at La Vida Aureo.
