Lakota FBI Agent Manny Tanno is back in action with his faithful tribal officer sidekick Willie when a man is found drowned in a Pine Ridge Reservation Lake. The apparently accidental drowning turns out to be murder, and the investigation takes them on the road to the man's home reservation in Wyoming.

Out of their element and unwelcome, no one on the Wind River Reservation is going out of their way to help Manny and Willie. In fact, some are purposely getting in the way. It gets even worse when they discover a decades-old unsolved murder with a connection to the man found murdered on Pine Ridge. Meanwhile, back at Pine Ridge, a Rapid City criminal's car keeps showing up at murder scenes.

Dark forces afoot on both reservations thwart the investigation at every turn. Not to mention the darker visions assaulting Manny at the worst possible times. And it's not just the spirit world that's out to get him. The case of the Pine Ridge murder balloons into a rush to catch the Wind River murderer before he racks up more victims-and before Manny himself is next.

About the Author

C. M. Wendelboe entered the law enforcement profession when he was discharged from the Marines as the Vietnam war was winding down. In the 1970s, his career included assisting federal and tribal law enforcement agencies embroiled in conflicts with American Indian Movement activists in South Dakota. He moved to Gillette, Wyoming, and found his niche, where he remained a sheriff's deputy for more than twenty-five years. During his thirty-eight-year career in law enforcement he had served successful stints as police chief, policy adviser, and other supervisory roles for several agencies. Yet he always has felt most proud of "working the street." He was a patrol supervisor when he retired to pursue his true vocation as a fiction writer. Wendelboe is a prolific author of murder mysteries with a Western flair, as well as traditional Westerns. He writes the Spirit Road Mysteries, the Bitter Wind Mystery series, the Nelson Lane Frontier Mysteries, and the Tucker Ashley Western Adventure series.
