Eleven years ago, psychologist Scott Hunter departed Santa Fe totally humiliated, his life torn asunder by the betrayal of his wife Rebecca. Now, at Rebecca’s request, Scott is unexpectedly returning to the scene of her betrayal to help solve the murder of her current husband Blake Martin, the man with whom she cheated on Scott. In Santa Fe, Scott reconnects with his old friend Miguel Montez, now a detective with the Santa Fe Police Department. With Scott’s understanding of psychopathic behavior and Miguel’s sleuthing abilities, they begin to unravel the complexities of Martin’s life and nefarious business dealings. The investigation of the murder leads to a wide array of suspects, their motives, and even the cause of death. Just as one suspect is eliminated, another surfaces, making the identification of the actual killer elusive and challenging. Scott’s journey takes him face-to-face with his own demons as well as the underbelly of the art world and drug scene. Working the case shakes up Scott’s world and causes him to rethink everything.
