I enjoyed "Saint Death" by Marcus Sedgwick immensely as it was a book you would think about days after you'd finished it. It revealed what life was like for migrants, drug lords and in some parts of mexico near the american border. In between certain chapters were a couple of pages explaining what was going on in more depth aside from the story line which was useful to read as the book contained many Spanish phrases and Mexican traditions unknown to people that aren't Mexican or have looked into the culture deeply. I'm not sure which category to put "Saint Death" in as it is based around a believable story about Aruto and Faustino having to win money back although there is an element of fantasy that circulates the book.
