About this title

Synopsis:

Forensic psychologist Jemimah Hodge is much in demand for her keen understanding of the criminal mind. So much in demand, in fact, that she decides to escape the pressure by moving from L.A. to New Mexico to take a job with the local sheriff's office. She expects that her duties will be limited to assessing petty criminals and reporting her findings to the court. Jemimah had hoped to find a simpler life on her small ranch, located in the juniper-covered foothills of the Ortiz Mountains south of Santa Fe. A cowgirl at heart, she envisioned a place where she could spend more time in a saddle than a chair. Instead she finds herself knee deep in an investigation of a series of gruesome murders that took place right smack in the center of an ancient Indian pueblo. This case will not only test Jemimah's mettle, but also tug at her heartstrings. Now she must work side by side with Detective Rick Romero, a true 'hey let me be the cop' kind of guy with a soft spot for a pretty lady on an Appaloosa horse.

About the Author:

Marie Romero Cash was born in Santa Fe, New Mexico, to a family that would eventually number seven children, and has lived there most of her life. After graduating from Santa Fe High School, she took a job as a legal secretary, a field that would provide a lifetime of employment. But then, in her mid-thirties, she discovered the traditional arts of northern New Mexico. After twenty years of creating award-winning art, she began to write about it, but decided she needed a higher education to do so. At fifty she enrolled in college and, five years later, graduated with a degree in Southwest Studies. In 1998, she received the prestigious Javits Fellowship to pursue her education.  Since then Marie has written several books about the art and culture of the southwest, including a memoir about growing up in Santa Fe. This novel, her first mystery, is based on the ranch where she spent a lot of time during her marriage to a cowboy. “Don’t get me wrong,” she says, “I’m the last person you would ever picture on a ranch. The alligator boots I purchased in 1987 still look like new!” You can find Marie on the Web at MarieRomeroCash.camelpress.com.
