Santa Fe Edge by Stuart Woods is the fourth book in the “Ed Eagle” suspense series. Publisher: Putnam Adult, September 2010
Ed Eagle, the six-foot-seven, take-no-prisoners Santa Fe attorney, is no stranger to murder, corruption or organized crime—both north and south of the border. His home in Santa Fe, a picturesque, high-desert town, where the wealthy enjoy the good life, seems like a welcome retreat from the grit and crime of big cities, but looks can be deceiving, and trouble has a way of finding Ed.
A puzzling murder in a golfer’s hacienda brings in a new client for Ed, but while his time is spent unraveling the complex web of sex, money and false identity, a much more dangerous threat lurks. A ruthless and implacable enemy who has proved more than a match for him in the past has returned to Santa Fe, and this time she wants nothing less than all-out retribution.
From the seamy prisons of Mexico to the glamorous movies sets of L.A. and the lush and exclusive resorts of Santa Fe, Ed Eagle and his team of private investigators must hunt or be hunted.
An ex-wife escapes from prison, an ex-spy is found and then lost and a mystery woman surfaces and all stories are connected. It was fun seeing how they interacted with someone connected to another. All in all a good story but there was no satisfactory conclusion for me. My rating: 3 stars
