Praise for Desert Run..."[A] fascinating adventure...Webb effec-tively evokes the beauty of the Arizona desert." -Booklist Things are never easy for Scottsdale private eye Lena Jones. Her partner, Jimmy Sisiwan, is leaving for a wife and a job at Southwest MicroSystems. Her old captain at the Scottsdale PD is moving to Brooklyn. She's doing security for the director of a documentary being shot at Papago Park about the German POW camp and the "great escape" of Christmas Eve, 1944, when some prisoners tunneled out and fled. And one surviving escapee, Kapitan Zur See Erik Ernst, a man in his nineties confined to a wheelchair after a boating accident, has just been murdered. Lena's experienced in probing the past for answers, including the central mystery of her own life-who is she? Betty Webb has interviewed U.S. presidents, astronauts, Nobel Prize-winners, the homeless, the dying, and polygamy runaways. Desert Wind is seventh in her Lena Jones mystery series, based on stories she covered as a reporter.
