Bailey's friend Bob hears a terrible scream from the terrace of his Mexican home. Investigating, he discovers the body of a young neighbor, Kathleen Blaylock and eventually calls in Bailey from Phoenix, AZ, just across the border. Bailey suspects Kathleen's husband Al, but Mexican police think it was Al's girlfriend, Teresa, a beautiful trans-sexual woman. Bailey wins the right to continue the investigation since Kathleen was also a Phoenix resident.
From here the plot gets murky. Tie-ins appear accidental, connections are more emotional than logical, Bailey's stints in the hospital feel out of place despite his meeting with the legendary Clive Bascomb, and the ending suggests some pretty sloppy police work. I believe the author tried to combine a philosophical treatise with a murder mystery. He also made just one or two homophobic remarks. I don't think either was a good idea.
I loved Scurry, the dog!
