Description - Prolonged Exposure by Steven F. Havill
Praise for Prolonged Exposure...
"Crisp writing and clarity of focus make this a pleasure to read." -Library Journal
"...another excellent small-town caper in which common sense, compassion, loyalty, and decency are law enforcement's primary tools against an increasingly brutal world."
Undersheriff Bill Gastner is going crazy recuper-ating from heart surgery at his daughter's home in Michigan. Dreaming of green chili, he's rescued by a phone call from back home. Gastner returns to Posadas County, New Mexico, only to learn that his own home has been burgled. Moreover, Gastner finds his cranky, elderly neighbor Florencio Apodaca has borrowed a bit of land to bury his wife-and the dead woman's stepson questions if she died a natural death. Meanwhile a young boy out camping has vanished from atop Cat Mesa. A stringent search convinces Bill, his treasured deputy Estelle Reyes-Guzman, and Sheriff Martin Holman that the boy has been spirited away. Then when Estelle's own toddler goes missing, it's personal....
Steven F. Havill lives with his wife of 40 years, Kathleen, in New Mexico. He is the author of 21 novels set in the American West, taught secondary schools for 25 years, and recently earned an AAS degree in gunsmithing.
