Synopses & Reviews
Bureau of Indian Affairs Investigator Emmett Quanah Parker is about to face the most dangerous case of his career. With FBI Special Agent Anna Turnipseed, he is pulled deeper into a complex case, like Custer into a Little Bighorn.
If there's one thing that Bureau of Indian Affairs Investigator Emmett Quanah Parker knows, it's that the dead don't always stay dead. With him he carries the ghosts of a partner killed in action, three failed marriages, and a long affair with the bottle. And now he's about to face the most dangerous case of his career--one that begins with a body that doesn't stay buried. The corpse of a woman, brutally murdered and bizarrely mutilated, is discovered on Havasupai Nation land. Parker is paired with FBI Special Agent Anna Turnipseed in a hastily assembled task force of two. The two share a mixed Native American ancestry--and little else. As they are pulled deeper into a complex case, Parker suspects they are being led, like Custer to a Little Bighorn, into a killer's trap. At the heart of it are the dead, and history is the most lethal weapon of all. Fans of Tony Hillerman will enjoy these novels by Kirk Mitchell, whose background as a sheriff on a reservation brings an exciting realism to the books.
