Take one sharp, determined deputy; ask her to solve a mystery that hasn’t been solved in thirty years. Stir in a local chauvinist, a tourist who disappears near Big Bend National Park, a foray into the nightlife of a nearby Mexican town, a handsome millionaire, a ferocious blizzard, and an abandoned mercury mining town. Sprinkle with the awe-inspiring scenery of West Texas, starry desert nights, and the drop-dead beauty of Wyoming. Mix it together for a fast-paced read.
