“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.
