Publisher's Summary

A body is discovered in a cement pillar. Clasped in his hand is a gold pin shaped like a lightning bolt. What secret did he carry to his grave and why is someone hell-bent on keeping that secret buried?

Detective Sergeant Samantha Casey is more than just a cop. She is part Native American with a unique ability to hear the dead speak. They tell her secrets about their life and death. And sometimes what she learns can get her killed. The puzzle pieces pile up: The deceased is a U.S. soldier reported AWOL during the Korean War. A state representative owns a pin identical to the dead man's. And Sam discovers another pin in her father's jewelry box. Had her father known the deceased? What story had her father, an investigative reporter, been working on at the time of his own death years ago?

This is a gripping story of racism, conspiracy, and cover-up, and one woman's willingness to risk everything to find out the truth.

Solve another case with Sam Casey.
