Having moved with her teen daughter Ruby to the secluded village of Zamora, Kate Ryan hopes to embrace an uneventful life among the Spanish farmers of northern New Mexico in this gritty, southwestern thriller. When Kate invites the wrong drifter into her home and life, the delicate peace of her domain shatters. But when the drifter is shot and Ruby disappears, the quiet village erupts with confusion and fear. As the Spanish farmers camp outside the Ryan house and offer their quixotic and profound support, everyone in town—including the sheriff, the local doctor, Ruby's friend and his mother, and the clinic's nurse—has a different theory on Troy's assailant, Ruby's kidnapping, and the discovery of an unidentified corpse. Written in prose as stark and beautiful as New Mexico's landscape, this stirring novel is filled with ominous surprises as it travels the back roads from the Sangre de Cristo Mountains to Idaho’s Bitterroot Wilderness.
