In the tradition of Chinatown and LA Confidential, writer Simon Oliver explores the hidden world of corruption where money, sex, politics and crime all add up the same thing. In the desert just south of the border, young women are turning up murdered. No suspects. No clues. And authorities seem uninterested in uncovering any. When ex-private eye Jack Cohen is hired to find one missing girl he is drawn back into the shadowy world between North and South. And there, he must face the terrible tragedy in his past that he’s been running from all these years.
