Overview

In the summer of 1990, Dr. Bill Brockton—a bright, ambitious young forensic scientist—is hired by the University of Tennessee to head, and to raise the profile of, the school's small Anthropology Department. Six months later, the ink on his contract barely dry, Brockton is called to a gruesome crime scene in a rural area to identify a corpse and determine how the woman died. But the case—one of Brockton's first murder investigations in Tennessee—could also prove to be his last when he runs afoul of both the county sheriff and an angry mob intent on administering their own swift, rough brand of "justice." With his back to the wall, Brockton is forced to think fast, talk faster, and hope for a miracle.

Fireblaze, Ashkit, Oakpaw, Nightpaw, Butterflypaw <br> Emberstar jumped onto High Branch. "All cats old enough to catch their own prey, gather beneath High Branch for a clan meeting." <br> "Today, as usual, we have many ceremonies. First, an announcement. I already posted in camp that I will be gone friday and saturday, but I'll post it here also. Going a little unrealistic for a moment to explain. I will be gone until 7:00 on Friday night. Also, I will only be on Saturday from about 4:00 to about 6:30. Then I will have to go somewhere again. Sunday may or may not also be a bit patchy. While I am gone, StormyAsh is in charge. Everybody please advertise!! When I get back, I want this place to be amazingly active again! Now, for the meeting. Ashkit, Oakpaw, Nightpaw, and Butterflypaw, step forward." "Ashkit, you have reached the age of six moons and are therefore old enough to become an apprentice. Until the day on which you receive your warrior name, you will be known as Ashpaw. Ashpaw, your mentor will be Fireblaze. Fireblaze, you have shown a large heart, and quick thinking. Please pass these on to young Ashpaw." <br> " I, Emberstar, leader of Rainclan, call upon Starclan to look down on these young apprentices. They have trained hard in the ways of the warrior, and have now earned their warrior names. Oakpaw, do you promise to uphold the Warrior Code and protect Rainclan, even at the cost of your life?" <br> "I do," he said. <br> "Then from this moment on, you will be known as Oakpride." "Nightpaw, do you promise to uphold the Warrior Code and protect Rainclan at all costs, even the cost of your life?" <br> "I do," he said. <br> "Then from this moment on, you will be known as Nightsoul." "Butterflypaw, do you promise to uphole the Warrior Code and protect your clan, even at the cost of your life?" <br> "I do," she said. <br> "Then from this moment on, you will be known as Butterflydawn. Oakpride, Nightsoul, and Butterflydawn, your vigil starts now. Ashpaw! Oakpride! Nightsoul! Butterflydawn!" <br> &star&euro;mberstar&star

I feel rejected.i have been here since about January, and I'm not even a warrior. I have been forgotten by my fellow clanmates. I feel confused. Why? Am I forgotten? A warriorr who was a kit at my time, Butterflydawn, and two other apprentices are now warriors. All I am is unheard of.
