Ivy and Mac are on the road, headed for their long-delayed honeymoon. Baja! Beaches! Romance and sunshine and shrimp tacos!

But then comes a panicky phone call from good friend Magnolia, who is, as usual, searching into her complicated family genealogy. What she's found this time isn't another great-grandfather's third cousin, it's a dead body. In the middle of a desert ghost town.

Except this body, unlike the dead bodies with which Ivy has had past experience, has vanished. Magnolia is uncertain if she made a foolish mistake about there ever being a body, or if something sinister is going on. Sinister as in murder.

Mac and Ivy figure a brief side trip to Prosperity, Arizona, to help their old friend won't take long, but when they arrive they find complications.

In addition to the missing body, there's an old cowboy trying to revive a faded western-movie career, a possible blackmailing, and a two-million-dollar insurance policy. Also an ex-model writing the Great American Novel, her artist boyfriend, gloomy that his success is not in highbrow art but instead is in paintings of desert roadrunners, and a hungry roadrunner named Henry.

And somewhere in this desert scene there lurks a killer, now determined to put Ivy and Mac into the category of the missing dead.
