Summary

Summary

In San Geronimo, New Mexico, a bizarre murder unearths the ancient secrets of the Anasazi. And rumors of evil, flesh-eating spirits run rampant…The murder of an esteemed archaeologist is fueling an already heated war between natives and the academics who excavate their land. And when the coroner confirms that the victim was cannibalized, the story takes a twisted turn…Private Eye Howard Moon Deer and ex-police Chief Jack Wilder are on the case. The killing appears to be a modern mimicry of the Anasazi's rumored past-one the tribe thinks would be best left buried. But Howard and Jack must search for clues even if it means digging up sacred land. As they struggle to fight tribal politics, the killer strikes again. And now, they must race to solve the crime before fear threatens to swallow the town whole...
