Publisher's Summary

In San Geronimo, New Mexico, a bizarre murder unearths the ancient secrets of the Anasazi. And rumors of evil flesh-eating spirits run rampant....

The murder of an esteemed archaeologist is fueling an already heated war between natives and the academics who excavate their land. And when the coroner confirms that the victim was cannibalized, the story takes a twisted turn....

Private eye Howard Moon Deer and ex-police chief Jack Wilder are on the case. The killing appears to be a modern mimicry of the Anasazi's rumored past-one the tribe thinks would be best left buried. But Howard and Jack must search for clues even if it means digging up sacred land. As they struggle to fight tribal politics, the killer strikes again. And now they must race to solve the crime before fear swallows the town whole....

An average mystery that pulls it- self from a 2 because it is set in a secret ancient Indian Cave. I loved this kind of mystery when I was a kid. There is a big, black horse, pottery shards, human, bones and suspicions of ancient cannibalism and a surprise that has bad guys just carrying on. For a trip back to your junior high reading shelves,this is your book it is good.

Another hit

I'm finding Robert Westbrook to be a combination for me of Louis L'Amour and Tony Hillerman. I have a warm feeling to accompany my intense interest as I listen to his books, like I'm once again in contact with my 2 favorite authors. Pretty darn good!

A very fun read! Loved it!

This was my 4th Howard Moondeer audiobook.They are all very listenable! The hero is a good guy who manages to meet an exciting lady in every book but they never seem to end well. The blind detective is solid.I think the reader does and excellent job and handles the transition between the characters superbly.
