A Lonesome Blood-Red Sun: The Bone Detective, A Dave Beckett Novel (Paperback)
Dave Beckett, a homicide detective who doesn't color within the lines, is regulated to the lowest job in the division and is known by his peers as The Bone Dick. He handles all "bag of bone" cases found in San Bernardino County's twenty thousand square miles, at present, count 256 pending unsolved. It's a boring, mundane job...until it isn't. In A Lonesome Blood-red Sun, Beckett is called to a house far out in the desert where a dog has brought a bone to the back door. Beckett investigates and discovers the victim, two years dead, is someone he knows. Beckett, with his usual verve and colorful methods, tracks the killer. The trail leads through a warren of dead ends until he discovers a most unlikely suspect hiding in plain sight.
A Lonesome Blood-red Sun is fiction melded with true-life incidents that makes for a non-stop thriller of the first order.
