Publisher's Summary

A thousand years ago a people’s blood was shed on this parched earth. Now the dying has begun again.

High on a desert ridge, The Watcher awaits....

The body in the arroyo belonged to a man who’d made his living plundering ancient Indian sites. And the only witness to the crime would not change his story: a demon had killed his friend. 

Sheriff Cliff Lansing has an unexplained death on his hands, and it’s only the beginning. In Las Palmas, New Mexico, a US senator is on his way to meet a Zuni shaman who is holding up a land swap involving 150,000 acres in New Mexico and Arizona. Backed by a powerful businessman, the senator intends to push the deal through. But in a long, dark night on the high desert, he is led into a storm of violence and shame. 

Now Sheriff Lansing is headed out to the Anasazi Strip, where the truth awaits him—in the swirling dust of magic, greed, and murder.

Starts off slow but becomes very riveting! Enjoyed it reminded me of a Walt Longmire book.

Characters are interesting

The characters are interesting. The murder happens at the opening of the book. Then the story is bogged down with too many side plots. You are transitioning between the sheriff’s and the senator’s story line. Both of those story lines have mini soaps opera in them. And two hours in there is no connection between the many threads so I am giving up. The narrator is excellent. There are many different characters and all are distinguished.
