"Havill...quietly continues a project virtually unique in detective fiction: anchoring his tales of crime and punishment as closely as possible in the rhythms of small-town friends, routines, and calamities." --Kirkus Reviews

Crocker beds down for the night with his gear on the high-school athletic field. By morning, 13-year-old Maria Ibarra is found under the high-school football bleachers a few feet away and Crocker goes straight to jail. His account of how he passed the night is full of enough holes to keep him locked down, but meanwhile a background check on Maria raises troubling questions about her life....

This series (the Posadas County Mysteries) is truly a delight to read. The action takes place in a sparsely populated New Mexico county that abuts the Mexican border and is not very far from either Arizona or Texas. The main characters are well defined and fit the terrain & have traits that make you feel that they are someone that you would like to know.

This is a mystery, not a genealogy of Germans!
