two murders in the desert of Arizona. Are they connected? did the ex-husband murder his former wife. who murdered the jailbird who just gave his son 250,000 in $1,000 gambling tokens. More to the point, where did he get the $$, and from who? Ali Reynolds the investigator almost gets killed herself - locked in a trunk, being driven to a very remote area -- certainly not to have lunch!
Interesting twists and turns, I really like this author, plus it's in Arizona, nice and warm reading for the winter. Read it in a snowstorm - you'll feel warmer just thinking about 110 degrees.
