Desert Angel (book review)

Posted: 08/31/2012 by judgeduke1912 in Books

Ahh… back-to-school time. Doesn’t it just make you want to commit murder?

What?! What do you mean yes? What’s *wrong* with you?

Look, we can’t help how you feel, but we can try to offer up some suggestions that won’t land you in juvey. How about instead of actually following through with your academically-induced homicidal tendencies, you try this alternative: reading about homicide.

Here’s one good one. In Desert Angel by Charlie Price, we find that one morning, 14-year-old Angel wakes to find that her mother has been… murdered!

Worse yet, Angel knows the killer – her mom’s boyfriend, Scotty.  Scotty is a hunter and tracker and Angel knows he is after her.  Angel takes off, knowing she will not get far without water or a weapon in the California desert, but she finds strangers that are willing to help.  She doesn’t want Scotty to hurt the people helping her, and they cannot call the police because some of them are illegals so

Angel decides she must track down Scotty on her own.  Just thinking about it gives me the shivers.

Read this fast paced thriller that depicts a young teen’s life or death struggle and see if she really can track down an expert tracker.

Place a hold on Desert Angel from the Calvert Library catalog.
