New Mystery Novel by Don Yarber : 'Corpses & Canyons'

Don Yarber was born in Harrisburg, IL and graduated from Mackenzie High School in Detroit, MI 1954. After a hitch in the Navy, he attended El Camino College in California where he studied Journalism. Don retired in 1998 and soon after published his first novel, 'Bodies and Beaches.'

'Corpses and Canyons' is the second novel featuring Kip Yardley, Los Angeles Private Eye, introduced in the first book.  The 3rd in the 'Kip Yardley Murder Mystery' series, 'Death and Deep Waters' is available for purchase.  Kip finds himself in the Canyon areas near Flagstaff, Arizona, trying to dig up clues to unravel the mystery surrounding the death of a highway construction worker. Although Flagstaff Police want him to return to LA, and sinister forces send him a deadly message by running him off of the road and leaving him to die in a burning Jeep, Kip is stubborn enough (or dumb enough) to follow his instincts and keep digging for clues. But when beautiful Valerie Chiccaro, the daughter of the Highway Contractor, turns up missing, things start getting hot in a hurry.  Kip soon finds that Arizona women are hot to handle and hard to please.

An Indian peace pipe, a topography map, and five grand in cash are some of the clues that Kip uncovers.  In the end he faces death in the desert before he can bring the killers to justice.  But his enemies underestimate him.  Kip has a few tricks of his own up his sleeve.

If you like good old fashioned P.I. work and are tired of filthy language, explicit sex scenes and psycho killers, you'll enjoy 'Corpses and Canyons.'
