Mike Peralta has been elected sheriff of Maricopa county. t a reception for him. He is shot and lays in a coma in a Phoenix hospital. David Mapstone is appointed acting sheriff as all the conflicting parties could agree on him. Before the shooting, Mike mentioned Camelback Falls. As David works to find answers for the shooting an escaped convict asked to see him alone. Going to the location finds a retired deputy murder and the briefcase carries information on an incident that happened when Mike was David's mentor. The material is unfavorable to Mike. Before long, David with his girlfriend, Lindsey and a co-worker are running for their lives. David must learn the meaning of Came back Falls and who the River Boys were in order to save their lives and reputations. I highly recommend this series.

PS: I have read both Gunn's and Webb's books. They are written from a woman's point of view. This series is written from a man viewpoint. All three are super stories of the southwestern United States.

In some ways I hate "Page Turners" like this as they keep me up too late. This is a well crafted mystery with an interesting cast of characters. The activities of the Maricopa County Sheriff's Department is the venue for this book. While it alludes on occasion to the infamous Joe Arpaio it thankfully does not bring him into the story-line. The selection of Deputy Mapstone as the acting sheriff is a little unbelievable but is necessary to the plot and untangling the mystery.

I love this series and Jon Talton has written another masterpiece. David Mapstone has returned to his birthplace of Phoenix, Arizona. He had spent a few years in service of the sheriffs dept.and during that time he had furthered his education and gotten his degree in History. He spent several years as a college professor until he had to escape the university heirachy. He goes back to Phoenix and starts as a cold case consultant. I would highly recommend this book and series.

I am about to move on to book three in this series. I enjoyed #1, and this 2nd in the series does not disappoint.
Three years have passed. Peralta has just been sworn in as sheriff of Maricopa County. . . just before he is felled by an assassination attempt.
It's up to David Mapstone to unravel the complex reasons and save not only the reputation of his friend, but his own life.

Too much sexual garbage. I'm not a goody two shoes but a story should stand alone by its merits. I guess if you cant write a good story you resort to the potty mouth stuff. I didn't finish it and as for the rest of his books, I'm not interested enough to look at them. Don't you have any black stars for stuff like this?

This is an exciting and enjoyable book. You won't want to put it down. You can't help but like David Mapstone and his historical, intellectual personality, mixed up with his cop persona. His girl friend is a good fit and they are both tough even when they are scared out of their wits. You learn a lot about both good and bad cops as well as good friends. You will care about these people.

Great story! Why do author`s always have to add sex? You had my interest without it. Good luck on your next story!
I really enjoyed Talton's Brief History of Phoenix, but his detective novels are poorly crafted,barely readable, and unconvincing.
