But when a fighter pilot from a nearby air force base mysteriously plummets onto one of his refuges, he is plunged into a deadly showdown with the military. A vexing mystery involving multiple murders ensues, and Nick must turn to the old ways of his Paiute neighbors, to hunt for a vicious killer and bring justice to the pitiless high desert.
