"Jake Page launched Mo Bowdre as one of the most memorable heroes in recent mystery fiction. The blind sculptor from Santa Fe instantly grabbed a huge readership and won major praise from reviewers. Now, in The Deadly Canyon, Mo Bowdre is back, only this time out he just may have tackled more mystery than even he can handle." "As The Deadly Canyon opens, Bowdre and his lovely Anglo-Hopi girlfriend, Connie Barnes, find themselves at a remote desert research station in the bootheel of New Mexico. The station is an outpost of gossiping, back-biting research scientists thirty miles from the Mexican border and three hundred miles from nowhere, and an unlikely site for Bowdre's newest sculpture commission - not to mention conspiracy, sexual deception, smuggling, and murder." "When a female corpse turns up in the desert vastness of Skeleton Canyon, the research station is plunged into turmoil. Bowdre, with his sixth sense for trouble, goes into action when it is discovered that the murdered woman was not only a scientist, but also a special FBI agent. But the murder is only the first sharp thorn in a dense thicket of mystery." "Written with grit and honesty, peopled with an unforgettable cast of eccentrics, steeped in the harsh beauty of the New Mexican desert, The Deadly Canyon is at once a superbly crafted novel and a breath-taking mystery story. It is a triumphant sequel to The Stolen Gods."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
