A Howard Moon Deer Mystery
Once a land of Pueblo dwellers, the town of San Geronimo Peak, New Mexico, is prime ski country. P.I. Howard Moon Deer and ex-cop Jack Wilder are headed there to meet their first client—a former U.S. senator and the ski slope’s owner. Instead, they find his body—and a murder case to solve.
Overrun with pleasure seekers, plunderers, and fanatics, San Geronimo has no shortage of suspects. But investigating the senator’s two very different daughters, his political enemies, and his complex business dealings leads only to false clues. Then the senator’s granddaughter is kidnapped—and the new detectives are plunged into a dangerous race for a little girl’s life…and for their own.
“Terrific…I couldn’t put it down.”
