Publisher's Summary

Badly wounded and estranged from his partner and love interest, Anna Turnipseed, Emmett Parker has come home. After 13 years of federal law enforcement assignments that took him to every Indian nation but his own, the veteran investigator for the Bureau of Indian Affairs has finally arrived in Oklahoma on convalescent leave. At once a son of the Nuhmuhnuh ("the People," as the Comanche call themselves) and a government investigator, he has ties to both sides - and is about to discover which side pulls harder.

    "This has always been my favorite of the series"

    Emmett Quanah Parker, BIA investigator, is on his own in this book. He thinks about Anna Turnipseed of the FBI, but she's not playing a part in this one.

    Emmett receives an honor dance as a gesture of recognition for his hard work, but it goes downhill steadily from there, as old friends start getting dead and injured. Worse, it's all being set up so that it looks like he's become a crazed killer, gone rogue on the res.

    While he's trying to stay ahead of a major manhunt, he also must find the real killer. He revisits old haunts from his childhood and draws support from friends, but it looks more and more hopeless that he'll be able to clear his name.

    Meanwhile a native woman is engaged in a shyster royalty check cashing scheme, taking the funds that belong to legitimate recipients, cashing the checks and disappearing with the cash, which goes to her controller. She used to have a husband who participated in this crime with her, but he got on the bad side of the controller and wound up dead in the motorhome bathroom. Now she's desperately following the instructions of the controller while hoping for revenge. She's never met this man who keeps ordering her around and threatening her life...but she'd like to, just once.

    The narrator does a decent job with this one. In fact, all of them except "Ancient Enemy" are done by the same narrator, but in that particular book, it just didn't quite work for me. In the other books, it's okay.

    "Confusing"

    The book was great until the end. Too confusing of who was doing what and who was who. Pretty long sometimes it got boring.
