    1. Mike Peralta has been elected sheriff of Maricopa county. t a reception for him. He is shot and lays in a coma in a Phoenix hospital. David Mapstone is appointed acting sheriff as all the conflicting parties could agree on him. Before the shooting, Mike mentioned Camelback Falls. As David works to find answers for the shooting an escaped convict asked to see him alone. Going to the location finds a retired deputy murder and the briefcase carries information on an incident that happened when Mike [...]


    2. EntertainingI found this to be an entertaining read. I would recommend it.Kept me reading to see how it ended.


    3. Good But Too MuchAt its core this is a fine mystery: fast moving and full of twists. The newly elected sheriff is shot before he is swore in and becomes comatose. His protege, David Mapstone, is made acting sheriff. It soon becomes clear that the seeds of the crime were sown twenty years earlier and involve dirty cops who remain active and homicidal. Who to trust? Unfortunately, realism is sacrificed with people who are too beautiful, too handsome and too bad. Worse, Mapstone sees his role as a [...]


    4. David Mapstone is put in as acting Sheriff while new Sheriff Peralta is in critical condition because of an attempted assassination on him. Mapstone gets involved solving the case of his long time friend. He finds a connection to the attempted murder with a shoot out Peralta and he were involved in twenty years ago when they were partners on the force. Lots of twist in turns in the plot. It's an exciting read. It's a definite read if you live in the Phoenix area or are familiar with it. I live w [...]


    5. Book #2 from Seattle newspaper's business writer. Felt less like a new author than his first book, character Dr David Mapstone, ex-university professor and currently a Maricopa County Phoenix sheriff has grown on me. David's mentor has been shot and seriously wounded at the ceremony making him head sheriff and David has been named interim sheriff. So who shot Peralta and is trying to take out David too?Couple of glaring glitches to me - Talton mentions single malt scotches a few times and the fi [...]


    6. 3.5 stars.Second book in the David Mapstone series, the 3rd in the series that I've read.Mapstone is a professor of history who has been denied tenure at his university. He returns to his previous job in the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office as a specialist in solving cold cases in the Phoenix area using his academic skills.This book, and the series in general, is engaging and intelligent. I just wish his partner (as in girlfriend,) who also works in the Sheriff's Office, would stop calling him " [...]


    7. I'm really enjoying this series set in Phoenix with a historian working for the Maricopa County Sheriff's. The author takes opportunities to talk about the history of buildings or specific areas while solving a cold case with impact to the present. In this one, David's friend takes on the job of Sheriff and then is shot. Common opinion in the sheriff's department is that a recent prison escapee is responsible but all is not as it seems.


    8. Jon has a long-term relationship with Phoenix and his growing list of mysteries is as much a series of essays on life, crime, and urban development in Arizona as it is a set of who-done-its. He also has a blog about Arizona he writes from his current home in the Pacific Northwest roguecolumnist. Camelback Falls a good page turner. Keeps you reading and guessing up until the end. Good book for your summer sit-by-the-pool-with-a-cool-one reading list.


    9. What fun to read a novel that takes place right here in Phoenix! The author is a former reporter for the local newspaper. The story is very good and when there are descriptions of areas or street names, I can visualize right where it is. Plus----and that's a big plus for me----he follows a character!


    10. Sometimes there is nothing better than a well-done police procedural mystery. Talton writes well, convincingly and intelligently. Despite female characters that feel a bit flat, I enjoyed every aspect of this mystery. Zipped on through and had a great read.


    11. Been going through some sort of Southwest crime phase, but I've enjoyed the first two Bill Gastner and David Mapstone books, looking forward to the rest. I think I'm just jealous that I'm not down there


    12. So well written, I wish it were longer.Talton does it again, mixing intellect with complicated bad guys. Nothing is ever simple, and this author understands that. I can't wait to read the next one.


    13. This is a step up from the first book in the series. David Mapstone finds himself as acting sheriff investigating the attempted murder of the new sheriff, his old partner. He has to recall and revisit a disturbing event they both shared some twenty years before.


    14. Great series. It helps that I really like Phoenix, AZ, but the plots of the two books I've read so far are a bit different that the usual, I like the characters, and the author develops the characters and the story convincingly. Hope there are more to come
