For two years, Kevin Kerney has lived alone on a small ranch, nursing the wounds that retired him from the Santa Fe police department. But Kerney's solitude is shattered when his ex-partner, Terry Yazzi, arrives one afternoon to plead for Kerney's help. And though Kerney may never forgive Yazzi for past mistakes, he knows he must help the father of his godson. Yazzi's son, a soldier, seems to have disappeared into the stark desert surrounding the high-security White Sands Missile Range.
Kerney's investigation resurrects on almost-forgotten feeling--the thrill of the hunt. And other emotions surface when Kerney enlist the help of Capt. Sara Brannon, the officer in charge of the Army's investigation, who is as beautiful as she is tough. Soon they uncover a situation far more serious than an AWOL soldier: a conspiracy that snakes like dssert wind from the tight-lipped world of the base to the cutthroat alleys of a Mexican border town.
