Lovers Crossing

Booklist declared LOVERS CROSSING "as satisfying as the debuts of such classic series heroes as Parker's Spenser and Grafton's Kinsey Millhone.... Outstanding."

LOVERS CROSSING introduces Brinker, a disillusioned Border Patrol Agent turned private investigator in Tucson.

Mo Crain, a rich and powerful car dealer, hires Brinker to solve the inexplicable murder of his wife, Sandra. The police have not succeeded so far and Crain is impatient.

While Brinker looks for leads, he faces the loss of his own partner, Dolores Gonzalez, who may be leaving him behind as her career takes her to New York City.

The murder case draws Brinker back to the border spot, Lovers Crossing, where he had been shot by a rogue agent. This time, he may not escape.

LOVERS CROSSING was nominated for Best First Novel by the Private Eye Writers of America. Publishers Weekly called it an "impressive, well-crafted debut."
