The desert ... it prefers to keep its dead. It wraps them up in its hot, dry arms, leeching the moisture from their skin ... .

Ex-FBI agent turned private eye Matt Barrett arrives in Sunset City, Arizona searching for a teenage runaway, only to find her dead and buried in the desert sand. Investigating further, he learns that other young girls have gone missing. It seems there may be a serial killer on the loose. But Sunset City is an unwelcoming place of dark, closely-guarded secrets, and Barrett is resisted at every step of the way, soon finding his own life in danger ...

A gripping, noirish debut crime novel from acclaimed horror and dark fantasy author Tony Richards.

'He's convincing ... convincing enough that the locals will read about their city as described by Tony Richards and shudder. And that's what we call a writers' writer.' - John Pelan.
