This time, the peace of his tranquil community in the foothills of the Snowy Range is broken when the discovery of a womans skeleton sets off a chain of events that leads to the brutal torture and murder of a local eccentric and the killing of the son of an affluent Chicago businessman. Harry polishes his rusty detective skills and tries to solve the crimes, but finds himself and his partner - a huge Teton Sioux named Frankie Bull - drawn further and further into the racist world of right-wing militants who shoot first and ask questions later. As this timely and bloody tale moves toward its deadly conclusion, Harry finds that despite his cunning and determination, he cant always protect his friends and neighbors from the racial and political violence simmering in Americas heartland. Sometimes, he can barely protect himself.
