Content descriptions

General Note:
A prequel to the series prequel, One Perfect Shot.
Summary, etc.:
It's 1986. Undersheriff Bill Gastner hastens to the interstate exit where a violent crash has occurred. The vehicle struck the support pillars; it is totaled and the driver and a passenger crushed inside; a dead boy has been ejected. The first deputy to join him at the scene is rookie Robert Torrez, the department's newest hire. The boy is his spirited younger brother; the girl crushed inside the SUV is a younger sister. The driver of the Suburban, also dead, is the assistant District Attorney's teenaged son. Were the three dead kids running from someone? Further investigation reveals that a fourth teen should have been in the vehicle, but is now missing. Where had the four kids been? And why? It appears they'd lied to their parents. Following his usual meticulous procedure, Gastner traces the vehicle's path to a remote canyon with attractive caves. The discovery he makes there balloons the case and introduces possible murder. Yet with a lack of witnesses hampering Sheriff Salcido, Gastner, Torrez, and other deputies, errors working the case can too easily be made.
