Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The two sandstone monoliths towering over the southern Colorado landscape are wrapped in ancient mystery. To the local tribes, they are the Twin War Gods, sons of the moon goddess, White Shell Woman. Legends tell of strange happenings in their shadows, of lost treasure and Anasazi blood sacrifice. But it is a much more recent history that troubles former Ute policeman-turned-rancher Charlie Moon, specifically the fresh corpse of a young Native American woman unearthed at an archaeological dig.

Synopsis:

While visiting the Anasazi ruins with his eccentric Shaman aunt, Daisy, who warns him that these ruins are cursed, Ute tribal investigator Charlie Moon begins to wonder if she is right when a child vanishes and two burned bodies are discovered, forcing Daisy, Charlie, and Police Chief Scott Parris to delve into legend and lore to catch a killer. Reprint.

Synopsis:

Charlie is drawn to sacred Anasazi sandstone monuments because of the deaths of two Native women.
