Where better for a serial predator to operate than in the Chihuauan and Sonoran deserts that straddle the 2000 mile long U.S./Mexican border from California to Texas? Hundreds of people die there every year as they make the dangerous trek to the Golden North. So, what if that predator collected a few strays, just before they died of exposure? Later, after he'd had his horrific 'fun' with them, he'd dump the carcasses back in the desert. Would the Authorities notice? And what if the predator uses his position as the county's Medical Examiner to officially sweep the collections of nameless bones under the rug? Would the Authorities investigate? But what if one victim miraculously got away unnoticed and survived? And what if she wanted revenge?

William Elliott Kern: Long story, the plot uncovered midway through the story. From beginning, the story was fast moving. Then dragged on for quite some time.

mray2174: I did like this story. I would totally recommend it to a friend, but it didn't seem like a book.

Oh, d...
