Goodreads:  Something mysterious is killing the wildlife in the mountains just south of Tucson. When a college intern turned activist sets out to collect her own evidence, she, too, ends up dead. Local law enforcement is slow to get involved. That’s when the mobile FBI unit goes undercover to infiltrate the town and its copper refinery in search of possible leads.

Quinn and Costa find themselves scouring the desolate landscape, which keeps revealing clues to something much darker—greed, child trafficking and more death. As the body count adds up, it’s clear they have stumbled onto much more than they bargained for. Now they must figure out who is at the heart of this mayhem and stop them before more innocent lives are lost.

Kritters Thoughts:  Returning to Detective Quinn and FBI Agent Costa in the second book in the series.  As in most mystery/thriller series, each case is solved in each book, but there is character development of the repeating characters from book to book, so I suggest you start at book one before you dive into this one.

Detective Quinn is undercover again in Arizona as a college student was murdered while investigating possible ecological anomalies - i.e. weird amount of dead birds in a spot.  FBI Agent Costa is running the investigation into a copper refinery to find out if they had a motive for murder and were illegally dumping things to cause the dead birds.  This is the main mystery, but goodness there was a lot more going on, but I don't want to spoil a thing.

There were many moments in this book where I wondered if the author tried to put too much into this book.  By the end, it worked out and everything tied up nicely, but there were a few mysteries going on and I was worried that it was too much for one book.  

I am keeping this review brief and vague because I appreciated going into this book with minimal knowledge, so I would say pick up book one and then quickly dive into this one and enjoy the ride and the characters.

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
