Author J. Carson Black needs a title, and so she’s running a contest to find one.
Here’s a little bit of the story: a young man from the Arizona town of Patagonia is found dead alongside a state road. He was shot at the base of the skull with a .22, execution-style, but Laura Cardinal can find no reason he would attract the attention of a hit man. His car is found fifty miles away, out in the boonies off the I-10 exit.
There’s also a ghost town, Paradox, based on the real ghost town of Ruby. A group of people have bought the ghost town and closed it off to hikers, hunters, etc. The townspeople aren’t too happy about that.
Plenty of border issues in this story, too.
