The trail of the killer soon leads Brandon into a strange world at the unlikely border between forensic science and tribal mysticism: a place where evil hides behind a perfect facade. Now the seeds of terror sown three decades earlier are bearing awful fruit. A forgotten homicide in the Arizona desert is the beginning of a nightmare that is about to ensnare Brandon, the only person still alive who can unravel a truth more frightening than he ever imagined.
A novel that bristles with electrifying intensity and is alive with the breathtaking atmosphere and rich characterizations that have become J. A. Jance trademarks, Day of the Dead is a gripping and extraordinary journey into the darkness and the author's most spellbinding thriller to date.
"Jance's third suspense thriller to feature ex-sheriff Brandon Walker and his family deftly mixes Native American mythology with a harrowing plot." (Publishers Weekly)
