A chilling story of deadly desire and cold murder from the New York Times best-selling author of Exit Wounds.
A pretty, popular teenager never returned from her secret tryst in Skeleton Canyon. Perhaps it was a youthful rage or savage passion that ripped the life from a child of privilege and abandoned her broken body to the cold Arizona night. Or maybe she stumbled onto something terrible, something too dangerous to know. Now dark secrets about a future hideously destroyed are pulling Sheriff Joanna Brady of Cochise County into a lethal nest of lies and greed hidden in a desolate corner of the Southwestern desert—where the next blood that feeds the parched earth could be her own.
