Although I was disappointed when Bill Gastner retired as Posadas County sheriff, he has a juice subsidiary part in this book, although the lead goes, as usual, to undersheriff Estelle Reyes-Guzman. Estelle is on the scene when a dead body is found in a car wreck (and the descriptions of car crashes in this book may put you off driving!). But there's something strange about the corpse, and about his ruined truck. As Estelle--accompanied by a women's magazine writer--asks questions in the tiny border village of Regal, among people she's known since she was a child, she finds that some of them have been the recipient of unexpected good fortune. Maybe it's her years in law enforcement, but Estelle is a little skeptical about gifts of money. Still, it's hard to see where the scam is...Another forceful novel by Havill, who gets better and better.
