Overview

"As sharp and prickly as a desert cactus. Thoroughly entertaining."
---Carol Davis Luce, author of NIGHT STALKER

A woman answers a terrified cry for help...
A husband betrays his wife one last time...
The owner of an isolated hotel harbors a dangerous obsession...
A man succumbs to a fatal attraction...

They are four strangers whose lives converge on a lonely stretch of Arizona desert...four strangers brought together by the brutal murder of a beautiful woman. Each of them has a secret. And all of them have a reason to be afraid.

Now, someone else is going to die. For in the desert, under the merciless sun, there is no place to hide.

About the Author

J. Carson Black is the bestselling author of the thrillers THE SHOP and ICON, and three crime fiction thriller novels in the Laura Cardinal series: DARKNESS ON THE EDGE OF TOWN, DARK SIDE OF THE MOON, and THE DEVIL'S HOUR.

A man driving an old car tried to abduct her as a child, following her through an empty Tucson neighborhood. Her friend's mother, who happened to be outside, scared the driver away. Black remembered exactly what the car looked like--a 1955 Chevrolet sedan, orange over white. The sedan makes an appearance in DARKNESS ON THE EDGE OF TOWN, although the victim in the story isn't so lucky.

A Tucson, Arizona native, Black writes about the New West.
