A Flower in the Desert

Melissa Alonzo accuses her ex-husband, television star Roy Monzo, of sexually abusing their young daughter Wynona. After a vicious custody battle in court, Wynona and Melissa disappear, and Roy wants Santa Fe Private Investigator Joshua Croft to find them both, clear his name, and save his career. Following a trail from plush Beverly Hills estates to a tiny farming commune in the remote New Mexico mountains, Croft realizes that Melissa's true identity is as much a mystery as her whereabouts. Is she a caring mother? A determined political activist? A frustrated Hollywood wife? He soon realizes that he'd better find the answers quickly, because someone else is tracking the runaway mother and child. Someone whose intentions are far more sinister.
