Book description

A quick New Mexican romp through family sorrows and an awakening young editor who fears her anonymous tipster "the Scanner Lady" was killed because of her. The pace is great until it peaks and the ending was a little disappointing, but living in the New Mexico sun, even in winter, for a cold and icy northeasternly breeze of 10, kept me warm and reading one page after another for a few uninterrupted hours.
A nice first book. Not award winning. Not stop in the middle because this is torture!
