Desert Jade: A Letty Valdez Mystery
by C.J. Shane
Tucson private investigator and Iraq War veteran Letty Valdez joins forces with an unlikely ally, Chinese police Detective Inspector Zhou Liang Wei, in Desert Jade, a fast-paced mystery-suspense thriller set in the Sonoran Desert.
We meet a migrant lost and out of water in the desert, Chinese triad gangsters engaged in criminal activities on the U.S.-Mexico border, a woman murdered in her backyard, a husband who vanished with a large sum of money, and three abducted young women threatened with sex trafficking.
There’s a touch of romance, too, when cop Zhou first meets one of Letty’s friends. Don’t forget Milagro (aka Millie), the runt-sized female pit bull who performs a heroic act and saves a life.
