Praise for Desert Cut "Mysteries don't get more hard-hitting than this....Readers will be talking about Desert Cut for a long time to come." -David Morrell, New York Times bestselling author of The Brotherhood of the Rose and Creepers "Webb's dark tale of a clash of cultures is emotionally draining and intellectually challenging." -Kirkus Reviews While scouting locations for a film documentary on Arizona's Apache Wars, private investigator Lena Jones and Oscar-winning director Warren Quinn discover the mutilated body of a young girl. The gruesome manner of the child's death evokes memories of Lena's own rough childhood. Defying the local law, Lena investigates the child's death and uncovers a small town with a big secret. Founded by the descendants of pioneers who fought Geronimo, Los Perdidos now holds a significant population of documented and undocumented foreign-born residents who live and work at a modern plant. Lena senses a sinister force at work in the town-but where? When two more girls disappear from Los Perdidos, Lena is tempted to implement some frontier justice of her own to battle a cruel and ancient practice. Before she began to write mysteries, Scottsdale, Arizona's Betty Webb was a journalist. Her mysteries are based on stories she covered as a reporter. Desert Cut is fifth in her Lena Jones series. www.bettywebb-mystery.com
