Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: Gifted fifteen-year-old Francisco Guzman has become an internationally renowned concert pianist, touring the world under the auspices of his music conservatory. That gives his mother, Posadas County Undersheriff Estelle Reyes-Guzman, plenty of reason to worry--and that's magnified when she learns that he's in Mexico's crime-ridden Mazatlan for a concert series where he may be the target for scam artists and kidnappers. Estelle's worries go from bad to worse when her uncle--a man she didn't know existed--surfaces in an attempt to mend family ties and leaves a trail of corpses in his wake. Estelle's attempts to glean family history--the story of her childhood in Tres Santos over the border--from her adopted mother, a woman now in her nineties, go nowhere. Meanwhile, escalating events put Sheriff Bobby Torrez in jeopardy, as they do newly wealthy rancher Miles Waddell and his pet project, the multi-million dollar theme park, NightZone, set high on a county mesa. Just when his sage advice might be most useful, former sheriff and family friend Bill Gastner takes a dive--in the shadows of his own garage. Now his far-flung family is added to the mix of people and events astir in the boot heel of New Mexico.

    Posadas County Sheriff Bobby Torrez is antelope hunting when a shot blows apart his telescopic sight. Was someone trying to kill him or just delivering a message? Meanwhile, Undersheriff Estelle Reyes-Guzman's son, a 15-year-old pianist, is in Mazatalan, Mexico, for a concert. Crime is escalating in the once-picturesque city, so Estelle nears panic when her 90-year-old mother receives an anonymous call asking for $8,000. The tension escalates again when a body is found in a car, the circumstances suggesting that the victim knew his killer. There's also some preliminary evidence the dead man may have been the shooter who took out Torrez' lens. Are any of the incidents related? Havill, in his twentieth Posadas County mystery, will keep readers guessing. He'll also have longtime readers holding their collective breath to learn the fate of the series' original protagonist, Bill Gastner, now 76, who shatters a hip in a fall. The Posadas County mysteries are carefully plotted, subtly written, and populated by an endearing, evolving cast of characters. A worthy entry in a fine series that appeals equally to procedural fans and to those who favor mysteries with a small-town setting. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
