Synopsis
Deputy Margarita Ricos is a smart, young Chicana with attitude, who grew up on the last piece of the United States before the land surrenders to the Rio Grande and Mexico begins. Brewster County, the biggest county in Texas, has more spectacular square miles and mountains than it does inhabitants. The first of December is a crisp, sunshiny day in Terlingua, Texas. For the Sheriff’s Office, it’s a slow time. That is until Sheriff Duncan hands his youngest deputy a 33-year-old mystery to solve. Before Margarita was born, a 22 year-old woman vanished from an arroyo near the Christmas Mountains. No trace of her was ever found. The next day, a tourist is reported missing. The deputies find his car and camp in an uninhabited area, and not far from the same mountains. He, also, is 22 years old. Margarita and her partner, Deputy Barney George, set out to find two missing persons. One has been gone 30 years, the other about 30 days. Could there possibly be a connection to disappearances separated by so many years? Their search for answers takes them to various locations in Terlingua, to the nearby resort of Lajitas, to Ojinaga, Mexico, and even as far as Wyoming. Local characters populate the story, including two wild hawks, and a disgruntled man who believes Margarita is wrong for law enforcement; the job should have gone to a man. If you’ve met the deputy, you know that doesn’t set well.
