If I didn’t have enough favorite authors, I have found another. I decided to read this book as it is set in Phoenix, Arizona and similar to Betty Webb’s and Elizabeth Gunn’s tales. The MCs are will develop and I became interested in David Mapstone and Mike Peralta at once. David is now currently out of work having been denied tenured at his last university. He returns to Phoenix to sell his family home. Temporary, David accepted a job from Chief Deputy Mike to look at old cases. The case concerns the murder of a young woman in 1970. She was the niece of then Arizona Governor. David’s first love arrives unexpectedly and requested that he looks into the matter that her sister who has disappeared. These two cases collide together before long plunging David into circumstances that include threatening attempts, murder, drugs, and greed. Will David finds answers before death claims him? These sub-themes are skillfully brought together. I have already read the next book and the third is high on my to-read list.
