A Carrot for the Donkey

A Saxon Mystery (#3)

by Les Roberts

#3 in the Saxon mystery series.

When hotshot Hollywood producer Mark Evering summons the moonlighting actor to his house (where a drug-fueled sex party is going on) and asks him to find his wayward young daughter, it's the hint of a possible part in Evering's next picture, rather than the investigation fee, that hooks Saxon.

Evering can't understand why his daughter has run off with a shady lawyer twice her age when her father has given her everything—including a Betty Ford detox for her high-school graduation.

Saxon follows the trail to the wide-open Mexican border town of Tijuana, where he confronts a brutal landowner and his beautiful wife, an arrogant matador, a tough and humorless Tijuana cop, colorful lowlifes from both sides of the border—and the most gruesome murder of his career.
