Bitter Recoil

(1992)
(The second book in the Posadas County Mystery series)
A novel by

 
 
Aging Posadas County Undersheriff Bill Gastner has weathered his quadruple bypass and is taking a rare vacation up in the state's northern mountains. He's escaping meddlesome medical providers who wish he'd reform, but his heart is in staging a reunion with his former detective Estelle Reyes who is working in San Estevan County.<br>Arriving a day early at the Steamboat Rock Campground, his camping plans are interrupted by sirens. Suddenly, Gastner, Reyes, and her new husband, a doctor, reunite, not over dinner, but over the body of a pregnant young woman.<br>As first the detectives assume she was a hit-and-run victim. Then the the medical exam reveals she was instead thrown from a moving vehicle after a rape attempt. Gastner's curiosity is piqued -- but he's on vacation. Then four more deaths follow and the still-to-be-reckoned-with lawman steps in to stop the rash of murders....<br>The authentic flavor of southern New Mexico combines with strong detective work and irresistible characters to produce a second winner for Bill Gastner after Heartshot. Look for further reprints from Poisoned Pen Press, including Twice Buried.
