"Fast moving... well written and informative
about the illegal scene." J.C. Martin, Arizona Daily Star

     Somebody is killing immigration lawyer Carla Baca's clients. From Tucson to Mexico to parts of Los Angeles that tourists seldom see, Brinker follows leads in seemingly-unrelated murders, before stumbling into mass killings in the southwestern desert.

     Two-time Shamus Award nominee James C. Mitchell delivers the best Brinker yet, marked by the colorful characters, shrewd plotting and on-target detail that earned the Brinker series rave reviews.

Classic...the real deal.
 Booklist, starred review.

   When an unidentified man is murdered in Tucson, reporter April Lennox asks private investigator Brinker to help her uncover the mystery man's story. Brinker turns her down. April vanishes into Mexico, alone.

   Brinker follows April's trail into a dangerous borderland of greed and corruption, pain and power, and a new attachment to a woman who seems ready to risk anything to be with him.

   Like the critically acclaimed, Shamus Award-nominated LOVERS CROSSING, the second Brinker novel promises fast-moving suspense, intriguing characters, and a timely, unsparing view of the border underworld.
