Tribal policeman Bill Maytubby and Deputy Hannah Bond partner again to solve a grisly murder that is more than it appears.
In the shadow of a massive boulder on Oklahoma’s Big Rock Prairie, a squirrel hunter discovers a charred skeleton in a homemade charcoal kiln. Johnston County deputy Hannah Bond and Chickasaw Lighthorse police sergeant Bill Maytubby are called to the scene and soon identify the victim as a young Chickasaw man from a nearby town.
What begins as the search for a killer soon throws Maytubby and Bond into the deep end of a conspiracy that puts both the victim’s family and the officers themselves at risk. While Maytubby and Bond lead a manhunt through moonlit backroads and blackjack thickets, they must quickly decipher the murderer’s next move … before it’s too late.
