When the lead in a local production of Phantom of the Opera
is found bludgeoned to death beside a huge saguaro in a remote, undeveloped area of Scottsdale, it's a shock to ranch owner Maggie Browne, who knew the actor as a boy. She's further drawn into the mystery when the victim's mother asks for her help in solving her only son's tragic ending.
Enlisting the aid of her friends, the women of St. Rose Quilting Bee, Maggie begins to sort through the pieces of the dead man's life, wondering if one can ever truly "know" an actor. What was he doing in the desert late at night? While police suspect a carjacking turned deadly, Maggie explores some strange doings in the life of Jonathan Hunter's nearest and dearest, exposing dangerous secrets meant to stay buried in the desert…and in the past.
