About this title

Synopsis:

Blind sculptor Mo Bowdre and his lovely Anglo-Hopi girlfriend, Connie Barnes, find themselves at a remote desert research station in the bootheel of New Mexico. The station is an outpost of gossiping, back-biting research scientists, thirty miles from the Mexican border and three hundred miles from nowhere, and an unlikely site for Bowdre's newest sculpture commission -- not to mention conspiracy, sexual deception, smuggling, and murder.

When a female corpse turns up in the desert vastness of Skeleton Canyon, the research station is plunged into turmoil. And when it is discovered that the murdered woman was not only a scientist but a special FBI agent, Bowdre goes into action.

Written with grit and honesty, peopled with an unforgettable cast of eccentrics, steeped in the harsh beauty of the New Mexican desert, The Deadly Canyon is at once a superbly crafted novel and a breathtaking mystery story.

From the Back Cover:

"Pathologic entomology, venomous snakes, recently rifled Aztec artifacts, rumors of Spanish treasure, and the odd detail of Native American mythology add to the intricate fabric of Page's narrative. Memorable characters, stark backdrops, fine crafting."-- Library Journal

"The fast-paced action interspersed with some eccentric characters combine to make this a compelling story and a brilliant successor to Page's critically acclaimed first novel."-- Rocky Mountain News
