When rookie agent Michaela Sanchez receives a tip from her sister that someone has gone missing in the Tucson desert, she thinks she’s searching for a lost immigrant. What she finds is the murdered defendant of a high-profile local trial.
Lacy Hollander was a humanitarian aid worker, on trial for harboring felons after she sheltered illegal border crossers. When a conflict erupts with a local vigilante group, her murder ignites a political firestorm.
Concerned about her sister’s involvement, and taking heat at home from her activist daughter, Michaela takes it upon herself to investigate.
But repeated run-ins with the commander of the vigilante group and a series of escalating threats against aid workers make one thing clear…
...the violence hasn’t ended with Lacy’s death.
There is a killer on the loose.
And Michaela must untangle the mystery before he strikes again…
