The NYT called Betty's mysteries "Eye-popping" and Publishers Weekly called her human rights- centered plots "Mysteries with a social conscience."

Background Information

As a journalist, Betty Webb interviewed U.S. presidents, astronauts who walked on the moon, and Nobel Prize-winners, as well as the homeless, the dying, and polygamy runaways. The dark Lena Jones mysteries, based on stories she covered as a reporter, include "Desert Lost" ("One of the Top Five Mysteries of 2009, Library Journal), "Desert Noir" ("A mystery with a social conscience," Publishers Weekly) and "Desert Wives," ("Eye-popping," New York Times). Her seventh Lena Jones novel, "Desert Wind," will be released in February 2012. Betty’s humorous Gunn Zoo series debuted with the critically-acclaimed "The Anteater of Death," followed by "The Koala of Death." All her books are published by Poisoned Pen Press. A long-time book reviewer at Mystery Scene Magazine, Betty is a member of National Federation of Press Women, Mystery Writers of America, and the National Organization of Zoo Keepers

The Gunn Zoo mysteries
For a walk on the wild (but lighter side), each Gunn Zoo mystery is about exotic animals and the zookeeper who loves them.

Betty's blog
Mainly my thoughts on writing, but sometimes I get cranky about current events.
