When a vineyard worker--who is also more than he seems--is killed, there are plenty of suspects to go around. But are the two crimes even related? As BJ and his significant other, Paul Barton, follow the trail from the central New Mexico wine country south to Las Cruces and Carlsbad, they discover a tangled web involving members of the US military, a mistaken identity, a family fortune in dispute, and even a secret baby. The body count is rising, and a child may be in danger.

This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
Very nicely done. Comfortable characters (l’m getting tired of main characters whose lives are always screwed up. It’s nice to just read about a professional doing his job competently.) Interesting setting, interesting intertwining mysteries. My main quibble is the author’s tendency to lecture, as if he feels the need to include an essay on each subject he researched for the book, but this is a minor problem and would not keep me from reading another book in the series.
