Created by Walter Satterthwait
Affable JOSHUA CROFT and his boss RITA MONDRAGON live, love, and work together as PI's in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
There's some great local colour, plenty of engaging, slightly off-kilter characters and an "appealingly sensitive, slightly cynical series hero" (according to Publishers Weekly) that go a long way towards making this sun-bleached series one of the more satisfying ones of the early nineties.
An added plus is that Joshua seems to have a refreshing moral quirkiness about his cases, taking on some rather hinky assignments, from fencing stolen gems to tracking down the remains of a Navajo Indian who died over fifty years earlier.
Author Satterthwait also writes a historical mystery series featuring Pinkerton ops Philip Beaumont & Jane Tanner.
