Riverbend, Arizona sits across the Colorado River across from Sagebrush, a Nevada town with a casino and not much else. The side-by-side towns were founded and grew from a rivalry between two families that grows deadly.
It's up to reporters Alfredo "Fred" Walker and Richard Lawrence to sort through the bodies. Walker is a hard-drinking Tex-Mex with four ex-wives and a lot of baggage, and the Tennessee-bred Lawrence brings tons of talent and a lot of attitude to the investigation. Blackjack dealer Diana Cook and her cocktail waitress friend Beth Rodgers join the investigation, putting themselves in danger as they help the reporters find answers.

About the Author
Eric Pulsifer, a recovering journalist with more than a decade in the business and two more decades of screwing off, completed his first book in 2012. He liked it so much that even a line of road pylons couldn't stop him now. While he works in several genres, his fiction leans more toward mystery/thrillers with a caffeinated mix of realism, imagination, and a bit of a dark edge. His novels Damage Control and Desert Vendetta have likable characters, realistic settings, and the obligatory dead body or three. His newest work, The Beta Testers, takes an even darker apocalyptic turn in a high-tech setting. None of his fiction can be called autobiographical, but he taps his experiences as a professional musician (1986--), family caregiver (2014--) and taxi driver (1997-2007) to add color to his stories. His nonfiction work touches on the creative side and survival as a writer and musician. His first novel, B.I.C.* Cartel (*Butt In Chair) also concentrates on this creative theme. A respected musician, he currently plays harmonica with several bands in Southern California, ranging from bluegrass to jazz to gospel. A perennial student of musicianship and theory, he shares his ideas in Playing Harmonica Like A Real Musician. While he lives in the Los Angeles area, he calls Charleston, South Carolina home. When not writing or playing music, he can be found on a hiking trail with his dog or tearing apart another computer and wondering how it all goes back together.
