When Running Wolf sees the crashed aircraft, he photographs the corpses of the eighty-seven souls as they disappear, and the images bring to light the discovery of a diabolic deed. The National Transportation Safety Board quickly determines this is beyond their scope of responsibility and requests assistance.
The investigation moves from the Sioux Indian Reservation and state of South Dakota to Washington, D.C., when it becomes apparent that domestic terrorists with a biological agent are involved. Federal agencies headed by FBI Agent Bill Bradley race against time in their attempt to discover and apprehend the masterminds behind the crime.
A scheduled bio-terrorist exercise provides a perfect smoke screen for the aggressors to strike their first major blow to the citizens of the United States. In the government's attempt to contain the threat within the borders of South Dakota, the exercise changes to a genuine fight for survival. It becomes clear that the state and local levels of government have been under-funded and under-trained to counter the real threat of a biological attack. Support comes from a surprising entity as the Sioux and Cheyenne Indians sacrifice a sacred secret in order to offer safe haven to the citizens. But will it be enough?

WOW! Once I started reading Bradley's Ghost, I was unable to put it down. Ray Derby's extensive knowledge of his subject, the people, and the area the story is situated in, all work to make this book spell-binding, and terrifying. I was enthralled from cover to cover, and when it was done, was only disappointed that there weren't more books for me to read by Mr. Derby. I wait impatiently for his next publication.
A believeable thriller with added Indian culture. Be prepared to give yourself several hours of reading time, because you won't be able to put it down. Looking forward to the authors next book.
From cover to cover Bradley's Ghost keeps you on your toes. It's fast moving plot coupled with the Indian culture is fascinating. It's hard to put the book down but easy to pick up where you left off if you do. Set in present day it is interesting to read about an event that happens on a road that you have traveled or in a place that you have visited. A great read for anyone who likes fast moving intrigue.
I think the author keeps you guessing until the very end which I really enjoy in books. He is great at suspense and makes the characters come right into your room.
