Book finished: The Legend of the Slain Soldiers

I just finished #2 The Legend of the Slain Soldiers by Marcia Muller. I rate it a 7.
Santa Barbara’s Fiesta brings droves of visitors to Elena Oliverez’s Museum of Mexican Arts. And a shocking murder. Dead on Fiesta Eve is Elena’s friend Ciro Siseros, a historian researching the Legend of the Slain Soldiers, a slaughter of Mexican-American farm workers during the Depression. Bu can the mysterious death of union organizers in the 1930s be linked to the killing of a gentle old man today? Elena is soon studying paintings of the era for clues and piecing together a picture of her heritage that is etched in blood: a violent strike, a great passion, and a deadly secret someone now wants Elena to take to her grave.

I'll be starting either #3 Beyond the Grave by Marcia Muller and Bill Pronzini or #1 To Ride Pegasus by Anne McCaffrey. Probably the former first because its the last book in the series and the last book of hers that I haven't read.
