USA Today bestseller Melissa F. Miller's Aroostine Higgins series continues with a case that requires the federal prosecutor to connect with her heritage in order to stop a remorseless killer.

Rumors of money skimming, murder, and stolen military weapons swirl around a Central Oregon reservation. Aroostine is sent to investigate in the hopes that her Native American roots will help her win trust in a community wary of outsiders.

She arrives to find her would-be informant executed in his home. As Aroostine digs deeper into rumors and the murder, she butts heads with tribal authorities bent on solving the crime and doling out punishment on their own terms. After Aroostine and her husband Joe narrowly escape a deadly ambush on the reservation, she's not sure who she can trust ... and who's trying to kill her.

About the Author

USA Today bestselling author Melissa F. Miller is a former attorney who traded the practice of law for the art of telling stories.

She is the author of more than two dozen bestselling legal thrillers, suspense thrillers, romantic comedic mysteries, and forensic thrillers. All her work shares two common threads: pulse-pounding, tightly plotted action and smart, unlikely heroines and heroes.

Her books feature such diverse protagonists as a pint-sized attorney and mother of twins who’s trained in Krav Maga; a Native American government investigator who relies on her heritage to guide her when the chips are down; a Buddhist forensic pathologist who refuses to harm any living creature; and a trio of twenty-something sisters just starting out in their careers who find murder and mayhem wherever they go.

Excellent reading. I used this book as a treat. It was the only way I could get my housework done. Then I could go back to to read a couple of chapters, then back to the chores. Can't wait to read your next book.

Aroostine Higgins is a Native American but was brought up after her Grandfathers death in the White Man's world. She doesn't really know or care much about her heritage until her superior tells her that her vacation is being put on semi hold because there is a lot of trouble brewing at an Indian Reservation and the Casino on that property. Aroostine is a federal prosecutor and knows nothing about the legal system or how it works--boy does she find out!! There are a lot of twists and turns in this novel filled with murder, truth and lies and it will keep you guessing--just as it did Aroostine!! Will Aroostine get to the bottom of this--will she be able to prosecute the way she is used to or will she have to learn about her Native American heritage? You will definitely enjoy this book!!
