Annotation:
Bill Gastner, undersheriff of Posadas County, NM, and his deputy, Estelle Reyes-Guzman, strive to find the murderer of 15-year-old Maria Ibarra, a local teenager. Just when the evidence seems to point them to their suspect--young Wesley Crocker--he is run down by an unknown motorist. Will Gastner and Reyes-Guzman find the killer before more murdered teenagers turn up?

Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"Underneath the low-key, high-casualty plot, Havill's fifth quietly continues a project virtually unique in detective fiction: anchoring his tales of crime and punishment as closely as possible in the rhythms of small-town friends, routines, and calamities." 12/15/1996
