Publisher's Summary

While scouting locations for a film documentary on Arizona's Apache wars, private investigator Lena Jones and Oscar-winning director Warren Quinn discover the mutilated body of a young girl. The gruesome manner of the child's death evokes memories of Lena's own rough childhood.Clashing with the local law, Lena's investigation uncovers a small town with a big secret. Los Perdidos is not the Eden it at first appears. Founded by the descendants of pioneers who fought Geronimo, it now holds a significant population of documented foreign-born residents who live and work in the town's modern plant.Then two more girls disappear from Los Perdidos, and as the death toll mounts, Lena is tempted to implement some frontier justice of her own.
