Another Posadas County mystery with Estelle Reyes-Guzman as the undersheriff, but with the ever more popular Bill Gastner peering out of the wings to which he dispatched himself upon retirement. Estelle's new job continues to be far from easy, and now she is faced the death of a young woman on a motorcycle-- a death that could have been caused by improper driving from one of the county's traffic officers when he tried to stop her for speeding. But there is more than meets the eye. Gastner is there to help, but Estelle can go far to cope.

"Undersheriff Estelle Reyes-Guzman gets her second star turn here, and longtime fans of Posadas County, New Mexico, won't mind a bit...A first-rate police procedural, small-town division. And Estelle's a charmer." — Kirkus Reviews
"In carving out a little corner of New Mexico near the Mexican border, Havill has created an absorbing and entertaining universe." — Publishers Weekly
"New undersheriff Estelle Reyes-Guzman hunts for the body of a missing/presumed dead insurance salesman. Because he was about to be indicted for fraud, the man may have voluntarily disappeared. Another death, meanwhile, seems caused by a local cop gone haywire. For fans of Southwestern mysteries." — Library Journal
"Interpersonal issues, usually sequestered behind closed doors in insular Posadas County, take center stage in both cases, as Reyes-Guzman follows a trail that leads from troubled lives on the edge of despair to her own thriving family. Mystery series too often lose their way when the author attempts to replace an appealing hero. Hats off to Havill for making the transition work smoothly." — Booklist
