Desert Jade: A Letty Valdez Mystery

by C.J. Shane


Desert Jade was named a finalist for Best Suspense-Thriller book, 2018 New Mexico-Arizona Book Awards.

Tucson Chicana/Native American 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 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.
