Seth Parker is considered a terrorist by the FBI and is credited with many unusual deaths in Southern California. A man who cut the beaks off of pelicans is found dead and lipless. Another man who ran a dog fighting ring is found torn apart by his own dogs. Two boys who posted a YouTube video of themselves blowing up cats are missing, and no one expects to find them in one piece.
When Parker kills two poachers in the Mojave Desert for shooting burros, he falls into Frank Flynn's orbit. The problem is that Flynn sympathizes with Parker more than he should. Because of this connection and his intimate knowledge of the desert, Flynn seems able to anticipate Parker's next moves, though he is always one step behind.
With the opening of Sand Canyon, Flynn finds himself in the awkward position of having to protect an exclusive hunting resort. He'll have to come to terms with this duty, if he's to stay alive.
David Sundstrand's second novel gives more incredible descriptions of the desert and a riveting story.
