     In 1972, the United States Congress authorized Custom Services to establish a fifteen-man, American-Indian law enforcement unit to patrol the Tohono O’odham Indian Nation in southern Arizona. Their primary mission is to track drug smugglers and illegal immigrants who cross the border of Mexico into the American-Indian Tohono O’odham Nation located in the Sonoran Desert of southern Arizona, an area infested with dangerous rattlesnakes, venomous lizards and sometimes with deadly radical terrorists.


     The unit is called Shadow Wolves, earning the name by the way they conduct a field operation. If a Shadow Wolf customs agent or a U.S. Border Patrol officer finds any evidence of drug smuggling and illegal migrations within the Indian Nation’s boundaries, a team, or in some cases, the entire fifteen-man unit is deployed to track and hunt down the lawbreakers. The Tohono O’odham Shadow Wolves organization is the only authorized American-Indian tracker-unit presently in the U.S. law enforcement inventory. Their motto is: In brightest day, in darkest night, no evil shall escape my sight … for I am a Shadow Wolf.


     While on assignment in the desert, Special Agent Tino Ortega, lead agent of the Shadow Wolves, and two members of his team find three bodies killed execution style. Two of the bodies are U.S. Border Patrol agents. The third body is one of their own, a Shadow Wolf tracker. The FBI asks Ortega to assist in finding those who murdered the three men. He agrees, but the Shadow Wolves soon learn there is more to the case than a simple murder investigation.

BISAC: Fiction / Mystery/Suspense

For over thirty years, a self-ordained church leader has convinced his small congregation to secretly kill dozens of people after hearing an inner voice, whom he believes to be God, tells him to cleanse the world of chosen sinners.  

The sinners are criminals who committed heinous crimes and escaped capital punishment because of a legal or technical oversight, allowing them to go free.  The tormented religious fanatic and his followers abduct the hapless sinners, torture them for days, then administer divine absolution; a brutal and sacrificial death.

An investigation into three unrelated crimes by a shrewd county sheriff uncovers the mysterious carnage and shocks a rural mid-western farm community to its very core.

THE KILLING ZONE: Evil's Playground, A manic serial-killer epic about murder, police investigations and forensic pathology (CSI) with a little romance thrown in. Police Detective Daniel Patrick O'Malley is called out to investigate the death of a young woman in what appears to be an apparent suicide, but he soon discovers she is a victim in a series of bizarre murders. While trying to decide how to bring the deranged serial killer to justice, Lt. O'Malley must deal with the intervention of a powerful politician whose daughter is a victim of the killer, as well as investigate the attempted murder of his best friend and police captain supervisor. He also struggles to cope with emotions concerning two different women in his life.

The purpose of any book is to get you to turn the page.  From the first kill in Ottenhausen’s The Killing Zone, the author hooks us into a journey with twists and turns and unpredictable unfoldings.  What starts out as a dramatic homicide that literally crashes into an upscale Hotel dining room, becomes a maddening sequence of crimes, strangely linked together by the six degrees of separation that seem to dangle humanity by a strand of silk.

Lt. O’Malley, a cross between a rugged Gary Cooper and a somewhat more ragged Russel Crowe, bangs heads with the hot shot Medical Examiner who happens to be his ex-wife, as they each sift through the not so random clues that lead them to the most unlikely killer.  Ottenhausen’s authentically chilling accounts of the murders, artfully executed by an elusive killer, keep the reader demanding answers that don’t come until the author deems the moment right.

Add to this perfect recipe for a thriller, the urban politics of a corrupt investigation of a politician’s daughter’s death, and an untimely attempt upon the life of O’Malley’s good pal and superior, and a good man still wrestling with his issues with women he happens to love, and you’ve got a compelling book that won’t find it’s way to the nightstand till you finish. 
Nelson Ottenhausen’s clean, clipped prose makes the story the star of the show, as it should be when it’s as good as this one.  Be prepared to be caught unprepared for this read 

It would make a terrific thriller movie, it’s that good.
