Nicholas Madrid, Tucson private investigator, thought he had seen it all, but his most bizarre case yet begins when dark-haired, long-legged Lucia Calderon asks Nick to find her missing little brother. What Nick ultimately finds, will change the "Old Pueblo" forever.
The puzzling mystery begins with a girl who is killed twice! Was Cindy Dexter killed during a cult ritual, or was she murdered to cover up an even more heinous crime?
Cindy's murder also triggers a macabre chain of events that include:
- the murders of three innocent people;
- the discovery of an efficient, high-profit drug smuggling ring;
- the unholy activities of a Satanic cult linked directly to organized crime;
- and the shattering revelation that some of the city's most powerful and influential businessmen belong to a secret society of pedophiles.
On the trail of a frightened teenager, coerced into participating in a ritualistic murder, Nick delves deeper and deeper into a labyrinthine cobweb of treacherous lies, deception, and brutal murders. Before he can prove a naive boy's innocence, Nick must first unravel a nightmarish maze that stretches from the mayor's office to the seedy back alleys of Tucson--the sunshine land of saguaros, roadrunners, and retirees.
After Lucia Calderon is kidnapped, Nick is forced into a violent confrontation with one of the drug world's most ruthless and deadliest drug emperors, a Colombian named Santiago Robles.
In order to save his beautiful client's life, Nick Madrid must journey to a desolate, forgotten Arizona town, Ultimo Lugar, perched on the Mexican border--a forbidden drug smuggler's haven that lies between heaven and hell and is sagely referred to by the locals as...THE LAST PLACE GOD MADE.
