Riassunto: 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 aren't 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 that's 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 other's back, even for a moment, the killer may target them too.
From the Paperback edition.

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, BIA investigator Emmett Quanah Parker and FBI agent Anna Turnipseed aren't looking for a killer -- the remains dug out of the riverbank are 14,000 years old. But the bones have quickly provoked a controversy that threatens to erupt into violence: the skeleton is distinctly Caucasian, not Native American, shattering long-held tenets concerning who the first inhabitants of this continent were. -- While Emmett and Anna are distracted by the new romantic dimensions of their partnership, the illegal fossil hunter who discovered the skeleton is found disemboweled. Accusations of ritualized murder fly between the Indian and white communities, but the Warm Springs Indians have another theory: that the unburied bones of the Ancient One have been turned into a skep, a murderous spirit that haunts the darkness.
