Publisher's summary

Strange lights are spotted over the high desert of northern New Mexico. Unmarked helicopters fly to and from Archuleta Mesa on the Apache Reservation. A ranch foreman is found dead. And, after nearly a decade, livestock are being killed and mutilated, again.

Deputy Cliff Lansing is running for his first term as sheriff. In the midst of his campaign, the one-time rancher has to deal with divorce, the loss of a friend, and the gaggle of UFO enthusiasts who have descended on San Phillipe County.

Lansing joins forces with Ned Koteen, the newly appointed Apache Reservation Police Chief, to investigate government coverups, conspiracies, and murder. While Koteen struggles with tribal secrets, Lansing has to fight his own family's demons.

Another book that I enjoyed listening to. I’ll have to see if there are more, but this was good, others were better.

Not my favorite.

This story wasn't as centered around Native American culture as previous books, and that was a big part of what I liked about the others. It also didn't have as tidy an ending as the others. It was left pretty open ended.

Justice is in the eye of the beholder

I loved the different perspectives so effectively portrayed by the author. also, some questions remain unanswered, just like real life.

I enjoyed all of the books in this series

Thanks to the author for his story, the history of traditional People of the western America, and for unanswered questions of UFOs.

Another good book in the series

If this book is a prequel to the sheriff hackler series.... It has lots of real current characters and Could be viewed as the 1st book in the series. It's an interesting story and paints a good picture of the area andThe people that live there. the Plot is interesting and fun

A tad disappointing

Not quite up to the suspense and interesting storyline of previous books. I think bringing aliens into the landscape wS an error
