THE SORROW HAND (Book 1): It's 1968 and Nick Drake has a chest full of medals and enough demons to fill a duffle bag. He’s been trained to kill, but never retrained to rejoin society. He flees to Harney County, Oregon in search of redemption and takes a job patrolling wildlife refuges. But then he stumbles across a girl’s body ritually placed in a gully. Her murder is only the beginning, and he must face humanity’s heart of darkness once again if he’s to stop a killer from turning even more gullies into graves.
THE PITY HEART (Book 2): When a fighter pilot from a nearby Air Force base mysteriously plummets onto a wildlife refuge, Nick is plunged into a deadly showdown with the military. A vexing mystery involving multiple murders ensues, and he must turn to the old ways of his Paiute neighbors to hunt for a vicious killer and bring justice to the pitiless high desert.
THE SHAMING EYES (Book 3): Spring finally comes to the high desert after an especially bitter winter, but for every new beginning, something old must give way. Someone is poisoning wild horses and a vicious killer escapes from prison. A murder thrusts Nick into a desperate manhunt that turns into a fight for survival to protect those he holds dear. Spring quickly turns into a season of dying and life in Harney County will never be the same.
