Desert Vengeance (Lena Jones Series) by Betty Webb is a difficult book to read because of the subject matter. It is an excellent book regardless of being about the murder of a serial rapist who had attacked Private Investigator Lena Jones when she was only nine. It delves into the past for Lena and shows how she has permanent ill effects from this childhood trauma, including having screaming nightmares.
There are twists and turns in the storyline that kept me guessing. Because of that, I gave it five stars.
I received a complimentary copy from Poisoned Pen Press and NetGalley. That did not change my opinion for this review.
