Somebody is killing immigration lawyer Carla Baca's clients. She hires Brinker to investigate, setting up his most dangerous case ever. From Tucson to Mexico to parts of Los Angeles that tourists seldom see, Brinker follows leads in seemingly-unrelated murders, before stumbling into mass killings in the southwestern desert. Two-time Shamus Award minee James C. Mitchell delivers the best Brinker yet, marked by the colorful characters, shrewd plotting and on-target detail that earned the Brinker series rave reviews.
JAMES C. MITCHELL was nominated for Shamus Awards by the Private Eye Writers of America for his first two Brinker novels, LOVERS CROSSING and CHOKE POINT. A longtime broadcast journalist, he has also been a county prosecutor in Arizona and a journalism professor. He lives in Tucson.
