The search for one of the world’s most wanted fugitives, a swindler who is rumored to have stashed away close to a billion dollars in ill-gotten gains, leads brother and sister private investigators Callista and Joseph Kingfisher to a fabulous, luxurious resort in Mexico. But deep in the jungles of the Yucatan, they discover another secret hidden away, a secret that may mean death for both Kingfishers!

“He’s running,” she told Joseph as she came out of the car. “I’ll get him!”

“Callie, wait!” he called as he started to circle the front of his car, but of course, she ignored him and dashed after the fleeing figure.

Her eyes had adjusted well enough to the darkness that she could see the man throwing wide-eyed, frightened glances over his shoulder.

“Stop!” she shouted. “William Murphy, you’re under arrest!”

Wait, she thought as she ran. Was she allowed to say that? Would declaring him to be under arrest be considered impersonating a police officer?

Just to be sure she didn’t do anything that would get Joseph in trouble, she added, “I’m a bail enforcement agent!”

That didn’t sound nearly as cool as “bounty hunter”, but it was more technically correct.

“Would you like to ride? We have a pony named Ferdinand that would be just right for you, I think.”

Still no response.

“You came out here to ride, didn’t you? Just a few times around the ring. If you don’t like it, you don’t have to keep doing it. But you really ought to give it a try.”


“Who brought you out here?” Callie asked. “Your mom? Your dad? Don’t you think they’d like to see you ride? I’ll help you switch your hat for the special riding helmet and get you mounted up. A nice lady named Connie will be controlling the horse, and I believe Jimmy will be there to help the whole way to make sure nothing happens except that you have a good time.” She reached toward his shoulder. “I really think you’d enjoy—”

“Don’t do that,” an urgent voice said behind her.

The warning came too late. She rested her hand on Tyler Harper’s shoulder.

And the little boy screamed, twisted, and lashed out, swinging his right-hand crutch at Callie’s head.
