When a racing yacht is found abandoned off the Cornwall coast, with only the skipper’s brutalized body on board, suspicion spreads through the town. Crewman Lobb and all the other crew members are unaccounted for, including a celebrity tennis star and Kate, the owner’s fiancée, who have seemingly disappeared.
Once ashore, the owner finds evidence that the yacht had been fitted with explosives, and that Crewman Lobb had left the stricken yacht while the others slept. Sightings of Lobb since the sinking lead police to wonder could he be planning further killings? Links between the group surface, as it comes to light that Kate manages the hotel which is the venue of a major tennis and golf centre. Financial crimes committed in the luxury resort hotel mean that the Cornwall Police had already been searching for Kate, but when private investigator Hoyle and the police realize the seriousness of the murders, bombing threats, angry employees and threats from powerful people, it becomes clear that everyone is placed in increasing jeopardy. As the death tally builds and Kate makes a secretive return, the police are forced to face the growing list of suspects, and decide who had the lethal touch for murder.

The American Southwest has been decimated by drought. Nevada and Arizona skirmish over dwindling shares of the Colorado River, while California watches, deciding if it should just take the whole river all for itself. Into the fray steps Las Vegas water knife Angel Velasquez. Detective, assassin, and spy, Angel “cuts” water for the Southern Nevada Water Authority and its boss, Catherine Case, ensuring that her lush, luxurious arcology developments can bloom in the desert and that anyone who challenges her is left in the gutted-suburban dust.
When rumors of a game-changing water source surface in Phoenix, Angel is sent to investigate. With a wallet full of identities and a tricked-out Tesla, Angel arrows south, hunting for answers that seem to evaporate as the heat index soars and the landscape becomes more and more oppressive. There, Angel encounters Lucy Monroe, a hardened journalist, who knows far more about Phoenix’s water secrets than she admits, and Maria Villarosa, a young Texas migrant, who dreams of escaping north to those places where water still falls from the sky.As bodies begin to pile up and bullets start flying, the three find themselves pawns in a game far bigger, more corrupt, and dirtier than any of them could have imagined.With Phoenix teetering on the verge of collapse and time running out for Angel, Lucy, and Maria,their only hope for survival rests in one another’s hands.But when water is more valuable than gold alliances shift like sand, and the only truth in the desert is that someone will have to bleed if anyone hopes to drink.
