Published by Jeff_Mariotte
Lulu Lavender has been kidnapped. Her family has been brutally murdered. With the sheriff's office consumed by a high-profile case of a missing white teenager from a prominent family, it falls to Patrol Lieutenant Buck Shelton to investigate Lulu's abduction.
The trail leads Buck to the Arizona-Mexico border and a dark world of bizarre supernatural forces, desperate power seekers, vigilantes and drug dealers, and ultimately to a bloody showdown between good and evil--with an innocent girl caught in the crossfire...

Meet Buck Shelton, who the Tucson Weekly called "one of the finest new sleuths in fiction," in the supernatural thriller that kicked off Jeffrey J. Mariotte's loosely-linked border trilogy. This special preview contains the first six chapters of the novel, published in 2007 by Penguin/Jove.

Praise for Missing White Girl
MISSING WHITE GIRL is frequently enthralling. Mariotte hits upon somefascinating topics, including those of immigration and the Border Patrol,Mexican and American patriotism, and the terrible things people will dowhen they feel maligned and desperate. He throws in just enough grit andgore to appease action junkies, but doesn't use it as an easy selling point tothe Saw crowd.But his true masterpiece is Buck Shelton. In his hero, he's crafted one of thefinest new sleuths in fiction: a very real man who finds solace in thechallenges of his job when things get rough at home, who isn't so hardenedthat a dead family of four can still shake him to the core--and who isn'tafraid to make solving a crime a little bit personal. It would be a pleasure tosee Buck again.--
Tucson Weekly
 Offers a gripping supernatural thriller while weaving an insightfulcommentary about race and class on the U.S./Mexico border.--
 Douglas Dispatch
 Jeff Mariotte's atmospheric supernatural thriller has stayed with me longer than I could have imagined. Perhaps it is because he captures a world I knowintimately, the high desert along the border between the United States andMexico. MISSING WHITE GIRL captures the mood and tenor of a placethat has been at the forefront of the national news, and explores the harder truths that that can't be described in a sound bite.... MISSING WHITE GIRLis one of the best books I've read this year.--J. Carson Black
