Publisher's Summary

Not one, but two dead bodies are found in the harsh New Mexico desert. The first man's face is smashed beyond recognition, and the second one appears to have been forced to dig his own grave before being murdered...execution style.Soon, new Sheriff Robert Torrez and Undersheriff Estelle Reyes-Guzman are knee deep in the midst of a brutal murder spree that spans both sides of the border. Retired Sheriff Bill Gastner is still on hand to offer his support and unerring street smarts, and to do a little investigating of his own in his new position as game and livestock investigator for the state.


What the Critics Say

"Skilled investigation, happenstance and cooperation mesh through every phase of the puzzle, ushering the reader along to one satisfying conclusion." (Publishers Weekly)
"Throughout this low-key, character-driven series, Havill has managed as well as anyone in the genre to balance the particulars of cop procedure with the often unspoken emotions at the core of small-town life." (Booklist)

Performance excruciating

Have purchased all the previous ha I'll books in this series. Change in narrators is jarring--characterization wildly disparate, inappropriate, and inconsistent. Who knew that so many New Mexican residents hailed from New Jersey and the valley. What is unfortunate is that the narrator-who has a pleasant natural voice--might have done a fine job just reading the text in a straightforward manner. Now I have tobuy print versions of future volumes.

Poor Narration Ruins Experience

Title says it all...

Ms. Brush may be a good narrator, but she is clearly clearly miscast...

Just avoid.
