In a novella set in the art district of Tucson, one I know well that has a funky old town feel to it Lees does well to capture the feel of Tucson. Shops come and go, galleries move around yet the artisans of Tucson are portrayed well here as a fine mix of down-on-their-heel hippies to the wealthy patron or two. Throw in some sordid sexually innuendo and a murder and we have a nice little murder that Maggie Reardon, a Tucson police detective, engages herself in, and watch how the relationships tangle, oh my!
An entertaining and fast read for one of those monsoon days in Tucson when the weather keeps you indoors for an afternoon. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 143444547X, Paperback)

The artists' reception at the popular Mosaic Gallery in Tucson, Arizona is a great success, but the next morning, when the body of Armando, the owner's husband, is discovered, things start turning ugly. Every artist becomes a suspect, and each of them has their own reason to want the man out of the picture. But who disliked him enough to want him dead? And who stole the fake Mexican artifacts and the sculpture of the goddess Gaia? Gallery owner Barbara Atwell is devastated at her young husband's death, and turns to her friends, Adrian and Rocco, for support. An unseasonal Arizona heat wave keeps everyone's nerves on edge as Police Detective Maggie Reardon juggles a disastrous personal life while trying to solve the crime. She even finds herself attracted to one of the suspects as she sifts through a long list of colorful, Bohemian characters to determine who had the ultimate motive for murder. But when she's viciously attacked in her own home, she begins wondering whether she'll survive long enough to find the culprit. The first of a great series of detective novels set in the sizzling Southwest!
