On Deadly Ground Publisher's Summary

Kanab, Utah, is bitterly divided by the politics of land management. The conflict pits environmentalist David Greenbriar against the Citizens for a Free West.

The bullet-ridden body of Greenbriar is soon found. County Sheriff, Charley Sutter, seeks help from newly appointed law enforcement ranger, J. D. Books. Books discovers that the victim’s widow has been having an affair with Lance Clayburn. Physical evidence links Clayburn to the killing.

Then J. D. discovers a possible witness to the murder, a reclusive teenager with a penchant for disappearing into the wilderness.

Books connects Greenbriar’s murder to a corrupt Kane County Sheriff’s Department deputy and a Las Vegas business conglomerate with ties to organized crime. Enter Peter Deluca, a very dangerous mob contract killer. Deluca will stop at nothing to eliminate anyone who can link him or his employer to Greenbriar’s murder. Deluca returns to Kanab to hunt down the missing teenage witness and for an inevitable showdown with Books.
