Publisher Comments:

From Kirk Mitchell comes a riveting suspense thriller in the tradition of Tony Hillerman and Joseph Wambaugh, featuring Bureau of Indian Affairs Criminal Investigator Emmett Quanah Parker and FBI Special Agent Anna Turnipseed, two Native American cops searching for justice between their heritage and the law.

Though there are signs of foul play, Emmett Quanah Parker and Anna Turnipseed arent looking for a killer — the remains dug out of a riverbank by an illegal fossil hunter are 14,000 years old. Parker and Turnipseed have been sent to central Oregon as official witnesses to the examination of the relics.

But the bones quickly provoke a controversy that threatens to erupt into violence: the skeleton is not Native American but distinctly Caucasian, shattering long-held tenets of who first inhabited this continent.

Emmett, with his Comanche and white ancestry, and Anna, a reservation-born Modoc with Asian blood, share a sensitivity to both parties concerns — and a forbidden attraction thats causing them professional and personal problems.

As people connected to the case begin to lose their lives, Emmett and Anna are paralyzed by their own demons. And if they stop watching each others back, even for a moment, the killer may target them too.

Synopsis:

Bureau of Indian Affairs Criminal Investigator Emmett Quanah Parker and FBI Special Agent Anna Turnipseed are assigned to a case where an illegal fossil hunter unearths remains that are 14,000 years old from an Oregon riverbank. The skeleton stirs a controversy when it's determined not to be Native American--which results in some very modern murders.

This book is smack dab in the middle of a series, but is so interesting I will definitely get the others to catch up on the characters. If you enjoy Tony Hillerman, you are bound to enjoy this darker, more action packed book.
