While riding in the desert, private investigator Lena Jones stumbles across a dead girl's body, and the expression on the child's face reminds Lena of her own dark past. Her subsequent investigation into the girl's death leads her to a small town with a dark secret. Los Perdidos is still alive with the memory of Geronimo's war, but it is currently fighting a new one -- legal and illegal immigrants from Mexico, Africa and the Middle East. In Desert Cut, the revival of a cruel and ancient practice is tempered by a growing underground railroad fighting to protect its young victims. "Webb's dark tale of a clash of cultures is emotionally draining and intellectually stimulating." Kirkus Reviews.
