The body of local Native American land developer Jason Red Cloud is found on the site for his new resort on the Pine Ridge Reservation, with a war club lodged in his skull, in this debut mystery featuring Lakota FBI special agent Manny Tanno. Returning to the reservation he thought he left behind, Manny finds his former rival Leon Looks Twice, now in charge of the Tribal Police, is just as bitter as ever, and has no intention of making Manny's job any easier. And the spirit of Red Cloud haunting Manny's dreams is not much help either, leaving Manny on his own in the hunt for a cold-blooded killer—and one misstep could send him down the spirit road as well.

"C.M. Wendelboe's debut, the absorbing first in a new Native American series, introduces FBI special agent Manny Tanno, a former Oglala Sioux tribal cop. When someone buries a war club in the head of Jason Red Cloud, an ambitious developer who put together a coalition of interests to build a resort overlooking the Wounded Knee site on South Dakota's Pine Ridge Reservation, Tanno reluctantly leaves his FBI academy teaching job to investigate. Tanno must face the enmity of acting chief Leon 'Lumpy' Looks Twice as well as the tribe's distrust of FBI agents rooted in the American Indian Movement fiascos of the 1970s. To complicate matters further, Tanno's brother, Reuben, is a prime suspect. The residual animosities that divided the tribe during AIM's heyday, the awful heritage of the Wounded Knee Massacre, and the plight of the residents of the 'poorest county in the nation' form a somber backdrop."—Publishers Weekly
