Mike Peralta has been elected sheriff of Maricopa county. t a reception for him. He is shot and lays in a coma in a Phoenix hospital. David Mapstone is appointed acting sheriff as all the conflicting parties could agree on him. Before the shooting, Mike mentioned Camelback Falls. As David works to find answers for the shooting an escaped convict asked to see him alone. Going to the location finds a retired deputy murder and the briefcase carries information on an incident that happened when Mike was David’s mentor. The material is unfavorable to Mike. Before long, David with his girlfriend, Lindsey and a co-worker are running for their lives. David must learn the meaning of Came back Falls and who the River Boys were in order to save their lives and reputations. I highly recommend this series.
PS: I have read both Gunn’s and Webb’s books. They are written from a woman’s point of view. This series is written from a man viewpoint. All three are super stories of the southwestern United States.
