Desert Sanctuary
A Madrigal & Blaylock Mystery

Kathryn Mattern
Desert Sanctuary by Kathryn Mattern

In this complex, and ultimately spiritually uplifting mystery, unconventional healer Madrigal Strahan investigates a mysterious fire in the Nevada desert. She lives in a dying town near her long-time boyfriend and high school sweatheart, Vietnam vet Blaylock Pritchard. The silence and emptiness of their strangely beautiful and mysterious desert resonates with shock-waves following the obscure fire in the wilderness, revealing long-buried secrets that ultimately lead to spiritual and emotional resolutions for Madrigal’s family and friends.

This compelling, well-told story keeps readers guessing at most every turn, with rich and complex characters who seem to fit in this quirky little town. Richly peopled with eccentric locals, a reclusive old miner, drifters, native Americans, and lowlifes, this story revolves around an old mine. Mattern’s tale keeps readers guessing throughout, with the answers revealed only in the final chapters.
