The Desert's Share

A MURDERED AID WORKER.  A POLITICAL FIRESTORM.  AND A KILLER ON THE LOOSE.


"...a lyrical page-turner with dialogue that crackles, a vivid understanding of the shades of justice, and a strong and complex female lead. Don’t miss this one." —Jess Lourey, Amazon Charts bestselling author of Unspeakable Things


When rookie agent Michaela Sanchez receives a tip from her sister that someone has gone missing in the Tucson desert, she thinks she’s searching for a lost immigrant. What she finds is the murdered defendant of a high-profile local trial.


Lacy Hollander was a humanitarian aid worker, on trial for harboring felons after she sheltered illegal border crossers. When a conflict erupts with a local vigilante group, her murder ignites a political firestorm.


Concerned about her sister’s involvement, and taking heat at home from her activist daughter, Michaela takes it upon herself to investigate.


But repeated run-ins with the commander of the vigilante group and a series of escalating threats against aid workers make one thing clear…


...the violence hasn’t ended with Lacy’s death.


There is a killer on the loose.


And Michaela must untangle the mystery before he strikes again…


Award-winning author Shannon Baker delivers a gripping new thriller set in the desert Southwest. The Desert’s Share is perfect for fans of J.A. Jance, Nevada Barr, and Sue Grafton.
