"A riveting mystery...Graham takes readers intimately into the setting, his knowledge of the places he writes about apparent at every turn." --DURANGO TELEGRAPH
In Tony Hillerman fashion, this page-turner brings the rugged western landscape, the mysterious past of the Ancestral Puebloan people, and the Southwest's ongoing cultural fissures vividly to life. A deadly struggle against murderous kidnappers in Grand Canyon National Park forces archaeologist Chuck Bender to face up to his past as he realizes every parents' worst nightmare: a missing child. This is the first book of Scott Graham's National Park Mystery Series.
