 About the Book 

When a former student turns up in David Mapstones office, she seems to have the perfect case for this history-professor-turned-deputy: a letter left by her deceased father, confessing to a forty-year-old murder and providing directions to the body.MoreWhen a former student turns up in David Mapstones office, she seems to have the perfect case for this history-professor-turned-deputy: a letter left by her deceased father, confessing to a forty-year-old murder and providing directions to the body. But things are never what they seem in Phoenix, a fastbuck city of newcomers seeking fresh starts from sometimes dark pasts. Just ask Davids wife, Deputy Lindsey Faith Mapstone. One morning the start of the Willo District home tour is interrupted by murder. A man lies dead with an ice pick in his brain. And Lindsey runs right into her half-sister Robin among the crowd gathering in the historic Phoenix neighborhood, the sister Lindsey hasnt seen in years. The reunion with Robin rekindles memories about their rough upbringing and the deep rift that they may, or may not, bridge. Why is Robin here now? David has his own problems. Theres a body in the desert, right where the letter said it would be found. But its weeks old, not years. And the former student who brought in the letter has disappeared. When David finally locates her, she turns out to be a sham, the wife of a politician with a vendetta against Mapstones boss, Sheriff Mike Peralta. But whats her agenda? Then even fresher bodies turn up, and the clues keep pointing back to the same remote piece of desert and a seemingly unconnected real estate development called Arizona Dreams. Mapstone knows something sinister is fueling this increasingly dangerous case....
