Crescent Moon Crossing
by Sandy Wright
Genre: Domestic Suspense, Police Procedural
A thrilling book, which had me on the edge of my seat, as the story unfolded – one twist after another. I found myself being pulled along by this intense ride through the sweltering desert, all hot under the collar. Rumor Varga is also hot on his trail, and has her own reasons for wanting to track down the killer.
The fact that the main character, Sgt. Jace Merrick, was planning to kill his wife but she was mudered before he had chance to do it made a fun storyline. It really moved the plot forward at a fast pace. Now under suspicion for a crime he didn’t committ, but wanted to, he realises someone is out to get him. But who?
On one hand someone has done him a favour, by bumping off his wife, but on the other hand – if he’d done it himself, he wouldn’t have messed up and made himself a prime suspect!
This well written story has some great multi-dimensional characters, and is ideal for murder mystery readers
Staff Sgt. Jace Merrick’s two short-term goals: Join the Army Intelligence Unit, and kill his wife.
When his bleeding-heart spouse, Abby, begins volunteering at Hope House, a group that leaves supplies in the Arizona desert for illegals crossing the border, he hatches a plan to make her murder look like a coyote smuggling gone wrong.
But before he can carry out his plan, Abby is murdered—and he’s the prime suspect.
Rumor Vargas is first on the witness list of Deputy Sheriff Cooper “Coop” Jones who’s investigating her friend’s murder. Rumor finds his methodical mind attractive and she’s curious about his battle-weary eyes. But when he turns that inquiring mind on her big brother as a prime suspect, Rumor has a reason besides attraction to keep Coop close.
The Sheriff suspects Alberto Vargas has Cartel ties, and this certainly looks like the Sinoloan gang’s work. On the other hand, Abby’s husband—and his lover–have their own motives for murder.
The further Coop digs into the case, the less the facts add up for any of his known suspects.
Someone has a grudge against Jace Merrick. A life and death grudge. And it’s time for pay back.
Sandy Wright resides in Phoenix, Arizona with her husband, a rescued Australian Shepherd named Teak, and a black panther cat born during a full eclipse and named Shadow Moon.
She fell in love with the southwest desert, including its Native American influences, when she relocated from the Midwest.
