When Christine Bennett is invited on a sightseeing trip to Arizona, she jumps at the chance for a little adventure. But the excursion reminds her of a former high school classmate, Heinz Gruner, who died twenty years earlier on Cinco de Mayo while hiking Picacho Peak near Tucson. Chris decides to contact Heinz’s mother, who has been wondering all these years how her beloved son, an experienced hiker, plunged to his death. Her one wish is to find out the truth–whether it was an accident, as the police report claimed, or murder.
So Chris begins sleuthing–tracking down anyone and everyone connected to her old classmate. Determined to unravel a mystery, if there is indeed one to unravel, Chris will stop at nothing to uncover the dire secrets that exist about that fateful day in May.

In the years since I was released from my vows at St. Stephen's Convent, I have learned to expect almost anything when the phone rings. I have received the usual good news and bad news that is part of everyone's life, and in addition I have heard extraordinary and frightening messages. Last year someone called to say that a murder would take place, after which I heard a gunshot.

I never read any of Lee Harris's books before. Until four days ago when I picked up me e-book and was trying to find out what to read and that's when The Cinco De Mayo Murder book 17 in the series Christine Bennett Mystery caught my eye, well I can tell you that this book will keep you going to the end of the book. It takes you to a beautiful mountain trail where a death acured some 20 years ago and how 3 young men covered it up. Its up to Christine Bennett to solve this accidental crime or was it murder.
