Finally, the new cover for Crescent Moon Crossing is here, and I’m so excited to share it with you.
Many thanks to designer Kim Killion, and to photographer David Winn, who shot the background cover art here in Arizona.
I initially wanted to have images of the Naco, Mexico, border wall on the cover, along with an unknown migrant worker. Plus, the solitary saguaro cactus that’s mentioned in the book. The sheriff dug around in this old guy and was lucky to find a bullet slug left behind by the killer.

Crescent Moon Crossing back cover blurb:
Staff Sgt. Jace Merrick's two short-term goals: Join the Army Intelligence Unit, and kill his wife.
When his bleeding-heart spouse, Abby, begins volunteering at Hope House, a group that leaves supplies in the Arizona desert for illegals crossing the border, he hatches a plan to make her murder look like a coyote smuggling gone wrong.
But before he can carry out his plan, Abby is murdered—and he's the prime suspect.
Rumor Vargas is first on the witness list of Deputy Sheriff Cooper "Coop" Jones who’s investigating her friend's murder. Rumor finds his methodical mind attractive and she's curious about his battle-weary eyes. But when he turns that inquiring mind on her big brother as a prime suspect, Rumor has a reason besides attraction to keep Coop close.
The Sheriff suspects Alberto Vargas has Cartel ties, and this certainly looks like the Sinoloan gang's work. On the other hand, Abby's husband—and his lover--have their own motives for murder.
The further Coop digs into the case, the less the facts add up for any of his known suspects.
Someone has a grudge against Jace Merrick. A life and death grudge. And it's time for pay back.
