Phoenix Cold Cases - Box set: 3 Books in 1by Jon Talton

A PHOENIX COLD CASE: David Mapstone has returned to Phoenix, Arizona, the desert city he left behind a lifetime ago. The ex-cop, ex-history professor is working the police dept's cold case desk, unearthing long-buried secrets. And he's good at it: as an ex-historian Mapstone knows the past is never past, as an ex-cop he knows he can't trust anybody...

CONCRETE DESERT: A young woman's body is found dumped in the desert in circumstances identical to those of an infamous 40-year-old unsolved murder.

CACTUS HEART: Mapstone unearths the skeletons of a pair of four-year-old twins, the victims in a notorious Depression-era kidnapping case. But what should be a matter of tying up loose ends quickly becomes something more sinister, more personal... and more deadly.

CAMELBACK FALLS: When Sheriff Peralta is shot by a sniper, Mapstone must confront the deadly consequences of a small-town shoot-out in 1979 that left Peralta and Mapstone standing over four dead bodies.

Jon Talton is a fourth-generation Arizonan who grew up in the same neighbourhood that Mapstone calls home. He is the author of nine novels, including the Mapstone mysteries, The Pain Nurse and Deadline Man.

'A great read!' Michael Connelly

'A strong new voice in contemporary hard-boiled fiction.' Washington Post

'Talton crisply evokes Phoenix's New West ambience and keeps readers guessing... ' Publishers Weekly
