Publisher's Summary

It's Christmas in Posadas County, and Undersheriff Estelle Reyes-Guzman is settling down to a quiet evening with her family and her friend, ex-Sheriff Bill Gastner - that is, until her doctor husband gets a disturbing call.

Retired Chief-of-Police Eduardo Martinez is calling from a nearby motel, where he is having chest pains. Not nine minutes later, Estelle gets a call that there has been an incident at the same motel. Estelle and ex-Sheriff Bill Gastner arrive at the motel parking lot to find it has turned into a crime scene, and the body of the retired chief-of-police is at the center.

It appears that Eduardo had an exchange with two men and then collapsed while the men took off in his car. An out-of-town couple are the only witnesses...but their story doesn't ring true.

Listen to another Posadas County Mystery.

Narrator

I just don't understand why an Author or Audible would want to change the narrator. Changing from a male to a female narrator just doesn't work and if it continues I'll not be downloading anymore in this series until Rusty Nelson returns.
