Inhaltsangabe: At the reunion in Santa Fe, Albuquerque lawyer Neil Hamel?s friends from the Old Mexico days had traded hippie indulgence for yuppie sobriety. All but lovely, lonely Lonnie, who was hitting the white zinfandel even after Neil herself switched from Cuervo Gold to decaf. Neil was concerned but not surprised, even when Lonnie drove off into the snowy New Mexico night in search of a runaway cat. In the morning, a hiker found Lonnie?s body in an Indian ruin. The police put Valium and alcohol together and came up with suicide. Neil didn?t buy it. Lonnie had a cause ? to stop the Ugly Building, a hideous structure implausibly approved by Santa Fe?s Historic Preservation Board. The board chairman was a prime murder suspect, but so were rick First, Lonnie?s sexy ex-husband, architect of the disputed building; CJ a psychic who specialized in next-life incarnations; and Tim and Jamie Malone, whose twenty year marriage was suddenly shaky. But as Neil searched for clue the Killer was stalking her, eager to satisfy a new found appetite for death. . .
?Crisp Characterizations, a nice take on sixties values corrupted all to hell and a superb heroine. Neil?s a game spirit fired by hot food, hot sex, and the Altering heat and frost of the New Mexican Landscape.?- ALA Book list.
The "annual" Saint Patrick's Day party hosted by Tim and Jamie Malone in their small northern New Mexico community is their first in many years. But it also marks their last as they prepare to move to the Midwest. For Albuquerque attorney Neil Hamel, going to the party is a reunion of sorts with various old friends she spent a year carousing with in a small town in Mexico in the late 1960s. Just about everyone seems to have made some move from hippie to mainstream except Lonnie Darmer, who--as in the old days--gets too drunk to drive home. Neil drives them both to Lonnie's little house in Santa Fe and wakes the next morning to discover her missing. Lonnie is found dead in an Anasazi ruin in the mountains near Santa Fe, her body unscathed.
The police immediately conclude Lonnie committed suicide, and her friends seem almost relieved to concur--all except Neil. As she investigates her friend's death, suspects suddenly abound. Even Neil herself comes under suspicion, as the real killer draws ever closer, eager to satisfy a newfound appetite for killing.
