About this title


When Joshua Croft's partner and lover, Rita Mondragon, is nearly killed by a psychopath who had tried to kill her years before, Joshua vows to find the brutal killer and embarks on a vengeful quest that takes him all across the country


Any visitor who has ever been seduced by the charms of Santa Fe should read Satterthwait's Joshua Croft mysteries (Escapade and Wall of Glass are available in paperback) before deciding to move there. Not that the author doesn't love his native city; he just knows that crime and violence may be lurking around the next glitzy corner. Six years ago, a thug named Ernie Martinez killed Croft's boss, William Mondragon, and crippled Mondragon's wife, Rita. Now Rita has made it out of her wheelchair, and she and Croft have become lovers. But Martinez escapes from prison and shoots Rita. While she swings between life and death, Croft sets off on a foolhardy but inevitable search for Martinez and his even more dangerous drug-lord friend. Bristling wit and the pain of endangered love make Satterthwait an original voice.
