While visiting a peaceful neighborhood in the desert Southwest, where the residents' homes face the picturesque Mountain Quail Gardens Park, amateur sleuth Pari Malik never expects to get tangled up in another murder investigation.

But she is renting the same casita where an earnest young runaway lived and vanished. Then a second neighbor disappears during a rock climbing trip in a labyrinthine sandstone canyon.

Pari begins piecing together secrets and the surprising clues of the puzzling mysteries with help from Violet, an octogenarian who scornfully spies on her neighbors.

Nine intriguing suspects both help and hinder Pari’s investigation: Nils, a world champion and Olympic medalist eager to find life after swimming. Malana, a self-described healer and masseuse, who is perhaps loyal to a fault with those she holds dear. Fionn, a male revue dancer desperately clinging to his concept of youth. Alejandra, a security guard mending a broken heart and trying to understand a personal tragedy. Roman, a mountain climbing enthusiast and flight attendant panicked that he is being stalked. Crystal, a beauty blogger and charity director acting curiously and crashing into the lives of others. Diego, a graphic artist and business owner yearning for renewed inspiration while trying to protect his sister. Sparrow and Spence, a strange couple with abundant tricks, who shamelessly seek investors. 

“Lurking On The Precipice” is a captivating and complex mystery novel, the follow-up to the debut of Pari Malik as an accidental sleuth in “Lurking On The Tightrope: Mystery at Diamond Head.”
