Desert Run Inhaltsangabe

Things are never easy for Scottsdale private eye Lena Jones. Her partner in Desert Investigations, Jimmy Sisiwan, is leaving for a moneyed wife and a job at Southwest Microsystems, and her old captain at the Scottsdale Police Department is off to his home in Brooklyn. Meanwhile, she’s doing security for Warren Quinn, director of a documentary film about the American World War II camp for German POWs at Arizona’s Papago Park, from which some prisoners once escaped.

One surviving escapee, Käpitan zur See Erik Ernst, a man now in his nineties and confined to a wheelchair after a boating accident, has just been murdered. What’s more, the man’s Ethiopian caregiver begs Lena to clear him as a suspect in the murder.

Lena, experienced in probing the past for answers to the central mystery of her own life - who is she? - learns that after their daring Christmas Eve escape Ernst and two other POWs had hid out in Arizona’s rugged Superstition Mountains. Nearby on Christmas night, a farm family, the Bollingers, had been slaughtered. A jury didn’t convict the only survivor, the teenage son, despite some suggestive evidence. What might Chess Bollinger know about Ernst - and vice versa? And how much can Lena trust filmmaker Warren Quinn, either as a client, a witness, or a lover?

In this complex, stunning case based on real Arizona history, Betty Webb spins another evocative, haunting story in her Lena Jones mystery series.

Betty Webb worked as a journalist and bases her mysteries on stories she covered as a reporter. She currently teaches creative writing at Phoenix College.
