    • Abstract:
      Summary: "Police Chief Josie Gray wakes in the middle of the night, sure that she's heard a car slowly passing by her remote homestead. When she goes outside to check, she discovers a woman, mute with shock and terror, hiding on her porch. And when she explores the field nearby, she comes across the body of another young woman, shot and killed. Located on the border of Texas and Mexico, the small town of Artemis has become a way station for the coyotes who ferry immigrants across the Rio Grande. But they usually keep moving north, to cities where they will pass by unnoticed. As Josie investigates the murder and tries to learn the identity of her uninvited houseguest, she discovers that not everyone in Artemis has stayed out of the trafficking business, and someone may play a bigger role than she ever expected. This fifth book in Tricia Fields' Hillerman prize-winning series captures the raw natural beauty of West Texas and the tough, independent people who choose to live at the very edge of the country"-- Provided by publisher.

Artemis, TX, straddles the border between Mexico and Texas. In his latest adventure, police chief Josie Grey (Fire Break) wakes to the sound of a car passing her remote ranch, then finds a catatonic woman and her dead companion outside. Fields's Tony Hillerman Prize-winning mysteries capture the raw natural beauty of West Texas. [Library marketing.]

In Fields's winning fifth Josie Gray mystery (after 2015's Firebreak), the Artemis, Tex., police chief awakes around 2:00 one morning to find two young women—one shot dead, the other traumatized and scared speechless—practically in her backyard. The cool-headed Josie calls for back up. As the investigation proceeds, Josie juggles a brand new love interest, kidnapping negotiator Nick Santos, and her mother, who's in town on a surprise visit from Indiana. Artemis's mayor, mindful of Josie's previous encounter with the infamous Medrano Cartel, is convinced that the two young women found so close to Josie's house are somehow tied to the gang. As the case begins to unravel, thanks to Josie and assistant Otto Podowski's crackerjack police work, it appears to have tentacles that reach across both state and international borders. Fields wraps a complex plot and ripped-from-the-headlines social relevance around a terrific heroine, scoring big for women in law enforcement. Agent: Dominick Abel, Dominick Abel Literary Agency.
