A Flower in the Desert

Walter Satterthwait: A Flower in the Desert (USA 2012)

From the Publisher:
A film star begs Croft to find his missing wife and daughter
Hollywood icon Roy Alonzo has just learned that in Los Angeles there is no such thing as a simple divorce. After years of bitterness and jealousy, his wife Melissa leaves him, taking most of his money, property, and five days a week with their only child. When Roy begins dating again, Melissa accuses him of sexually abusing their daughter, and disappears with her. Alonzo asks Santa Fe detective Joshua Croft to find them and prove his innocence, but there's a problem: Croft thinks Alonzo is lying.

Croft refuses to help the star -- but a surprise visitor changes his mind. Norman Montoya, underworld kingpin of Santa Fe, is Alonzo's uncle, and he convinces Croft that the fugitives are in jeopardy. The women have been swallowed by an international conspiracy, and it will take brute force -- not star power -- to bring them back.

BAD VIBES...
Santa Fe private investigator Josh Croft doesn't like his new case... or Roy Alonzo. The actor's messy divorce had made headlines when his ex-wife, Melissa, accused him of molesting their daughter. Now, mother and child have disappeared, and Melissa's sister is found tortured to death.

Following a trail from Beverly Hills to a remote New Mexico farming commune, Croft confronts the endless veils of secrecy behind which Melissa Alonzo appeared to live, move and hide. The FBI and Salvadoran assassins enter the picture and another woman is violently killed. It's dangerously clear Melissa is a wanted woman. Croft hopes he can get her while she's still alive.
