ALL BETTY WEBB'S' STORIES ARE EXCELLENT, **THIS ONE** IS AN ABSOLUTE MUST READ. TRULY AN EYE OPENER FOR ALL USA CITIZEN'S!!! IT SURE OPENED MY EYES.
I HAVE AND AM LEARNING SO MUCH FROM BETTY WEBB'S STORIES THAT I (PARTIALLY OR TOTALLY) HEARD OR KNEW ABOUT! OR WHAT I DID KNOW WAS FROM THE BIASED.... I ALWAYS THOUGHT THE USA PRESS WAS PRETTY STRAIGHTFORWARD AND TRUTHFUL, GUESS I WAS WRONG.
I'M 75, born 1940, 3rd GENERATION USA BORN (NORTHERN EUROPEAN ANCSTORS), PROUD AND HAPPY TO BE AN AMERICAN,. B U T!! NOT THRILLED WITH CERTAIN PORTIONS OF OUR HISTORY. PAST AND PRESENT! HOWEVER I CAN'T REWRITE HISTORY, ONLY VOTE TO HELP CHANGE OUR FUTURE. I DO **MY BEST** TO TREAT ALL OTHERS AS I WOULD PREFER TO BE TREATED! NO MATTER WHO OR WHAT THEY ARE!
THIS STORY IS FICTION, BUT BASED ON PROVEN PRINTED FACTS. READ THE AUTHORS NOTES
WHY IN HELL WERE WE SETTING OFF 2 NUCLEAR BOMBS EACH MONTH IN NEVADA FROM 1951 TO 1992???
THE GOVERNMENT AND MILITARY KNEW WHAT EFFECT ATOMIC BOMBS HAD/HAVE ON HUMAN BODIES AFTER DROPPING THE A BOMBS ON JAPAN, SO WHY. IN HELL DID THEY MARCH SOLDERS INTO A TEST ZONE AND SET OFF AN ATOMIC EXPLOSION RIGHT ABOVE THEM?????
NO WONDER THERE'S SO MANY US CITIZENS CONTRACTING AND DYING FROM VARIOUS TYPES OF CANCER.
THE US GOVERNMENT AND THE MILITARY IDIOTS AT THE PENTAGON KILLED JOHN WAYNE AND HALF OF ALL THE PEOPLE WHO WORKED ON THE "CONQUER" MOVIE SET FILMED AT SNOW CANYON IN NEVADA.
EVEN THOSE BOMBS SET OFF UNDERGROUND, SPEWED NECL INTO ALL THE AIR FLOWING EAST ACROSS THE US,

In this Lena Jones adventure, she decided to respect her partners Jimmy requested to stay out the situation where his adopted brother is being held as a material witness in the murder of a man whom he had a public disagreement. Lena changed her mind when she receives Information that Jimmy has been arrested for intimidating a witness. She arrives in Walapai Flats, Arizona to find him free on bail. Lena will do the investigation after Jimmy's adopted Father hires DI. Lena finds the locals not selling to talk with outsiders. The town is disturbed by the plans to open a uranium mine nearby. The area is upset as there are many deaths from various cancers. The locals blame the deaths in a uranium mine that is now closed. A peaceful rally turns violent and the Police are late in arrival. Will Lena find answers before she loses her life?

February 7 new edition about Lena Jones life will be released DESERT VENGEANCE. I am looking forward to reading it.

I have found all the author's books so far to be very good. Having lived and worked in the area where these stories take place, and being aware of the issues being highlighted in these books is a good way to educate others. While I might take issue with some things in her other books I have read, all in all I am veery satisfied. However, in this book, as good as it is, and I do recommend it for reading, I saw a very obvious flaw in the information presented. I am seriously left with question on the caliber of the research, experience, and knowledge of the author in relation to firearms and ballistics. Being raised in a big eastern city I would have known this was wrong when in high school, and regardless of what the tv shows try and present what is presented in this book just is not so. Read the book for the enjoyment and for the factual stuff, but remember, it is fiction base upon historic facts.

This book is hard—heartbreaking—to read because of the subject matter, but well worth it. Like the previous Lena Jones books, the plot revolves around a historical event, one of the most shameful in recent American history. Lots of red herrings since individuals are complex, but Lena once again solves the ‘crimes’ and wrestled with what justice really means.

I love these books and have read all of them. I first started them when I lived in the Phoenix area.
The author knows Arizona and is always correct in her street placement, locales, etc. I hate to read a book when I know an area and it is obvious the author has either spent very little time there or is sloppy when it comes to review. This book has a bit more social commentary than is usual in these books. It tells of the atomic testing in Nevada in the mid part of the 20th century and the effect on the Indian nations in Utah and Arizona. There is also a tie in to an old John Wayne movie! Lena goes North to help her partner who is arrested for a murder and is quickly involved in the town's love/hate relationship with the outside world and the government. If you like your mysteries with more than just a murder to be solved, these books are for you.

Betty Webb's work is always an intriguing and pertinent read. DESERT WIND is not an exception as she tackles the subject of uranium poisoning of people, land, animals, and water in the context of governmental and private business denial and criminal obfuscation. Webb's characters ring true as we see her protagonist Lena Jones continue to grow in activism, crime solving, self-understanding and acceptance. Jimmie Sisiwan is the perfect counter-balance to Lena. Much has been written and said of Webb's journalistic background and there can be no doubt that it shows in her extensive research skills. But her novel writing comes alive with strong emotions, great action and deftly portrayed characters. I'll look forward to her next in this series and her zoo series, too

Webb has taken a page not quite in the past and used it to create a gripping and poignant tale of murder, greed, and deceit. The atomic testing program of the post World War I I era produced cancer deaths at rates that wiped out multiple generations of families. Webb skillfully weaves historical fact with a host of colorful characters in a plot that keeps the mystery lover nail biting through to the end and the history buff outraged and saddened at the scope of the deceit and death visited upon unsuspecting people. The contrast with the incredible natural beauty of the location compounds the irony.
