About the Author:

Nicholas Hazel is the author of this mystery. He has taught at major universities and has written scholarly books and articles. He is now enjoying philosophizing about life and writing about people and events conjured up in his mind by the magnificent Santa Catalina Mountains that loom above him, by the vast Tucson Valley that stretches below him, and by the people and animals-and creatures out of myth-that inhabit the mountains, the valley, and especially, the mysterious Mountain Lion Canyon.
