(From the publisher):
Historian-turned-deputy-sheriff David Mapstone returns in this exciting sequel to Jon Talton's Concrete Desert. When his friend Peralta, newly sworn in as sheriff, is shot by a sniper, "History Shamus" Mapstone can't keep a cool, academic distance. And he'd better not: While Peralta lies comatose in the hospital, the powers that be appoint Mapstone acting sheriff in his place. Mapstone feels unqualified,but he's the only person whose temporary appointment won't infuriate all the other candidates who want the sheriff's position permanently. Meanwhile, a cryptic note that Peralta scrawled before the shooting forces Mapstone to confront his own personal history, which has drawn him unwittingly into danger. As Mapstone discovers, the past has deadly consequences. The mean streets of the New West have never been more sinister.
