Tucson is the nearest real "city" to the Flying M, and although it's taken a while, that city's independent weekly, the aptly-named Tucson Weekly, has finally reviewed southern-Arizona-set supernatural thriller Missing White Girl.
The reviewer wanted it to be a straight thriller, which it's not. But once you get past the idea that the supernatural aspects just didn't work for her, it's mostly a positive review.
Here's my favorite part:
"Still, Missing White Girl is frequently enthralling. Mariotte hits upon some fascinating topics, including those of immigration and the Border Patrol, Mexican and American patriotism, and the terrible things people will do when they feel maligned and desperate. He throws in just enough grit and gore to appease action junkies, but doesn't use it as an easy selling point to the Saw crowd.
"But his true masterpiece is Buck Shelton. In his hero, he's crafted one of the finest new sleuths in fiction: a very real man who finds solace in the challenges of his job when things get rough at home, who isn't so hardened that a dead family of four can still shake him to the core--and who isn't afraid to make solving a crime a little bit personal. It would be a pleasure to see Buck again."
