DESERT RUN by Betty Webb


A German POW camp was located in the Arizona desert. In 1944 a number of prisoners dug a tunnel under the camp and on Christmas eve escape from the camp. Betty Webb has brought the occasion to life in this book.
Lena Jones is acting as a security consultant for the Hollywood movie of the escape into the desert. The Kapitan Zur See Erick Ernst is featured on the show. He is found with his mouth tape, and duck tape to his wheelchair and murdered in his home. The Ethiopian servant is arrested for his murdered. That same Christmas Eve a farm family living near the POW camp is viciously murdered. The surviving son is tried for the murders but found innocent. However, he has been convicted by public opinion.
Lena longtime assistant, Jimmy Sisiwin is taking a job with a client of the agency. Her Captain of the Scottsdale Police Department is moving back to Brooklyn. Lena is feeling, as usual, those she has become attach are leaving her again. Lena starts an affair with the director of the movie. These various themes are skillfully brought together to make a tale that will grip until the book is finished. This book can be read as a standalone. I highly recommend this book and series.
