Monday Brown, an unscrupulous Native American artifacts dealer, is missing and presumed dead. Monday's not well-loved by anyone, and people in Billings figure his
dirty deals have caught up with him, or that he's skipped town to avoid trouble. But
the latest victim of Monday's abusive attention threatened to kill him in a crowded
local bar, and now that young Crow, Matthew Wolf, has been arrested for murder. The boy's family calls on Phoebe to clear Matthew, before a federal prosecutor uses the case to further his ambitious career. Phoebe hesitates to accept the investigation, but her curiosity---and the challenge of reservation politics--wins out.
Risking her life to vindicate an innocent young man, Phoebe fights against time and a crafty murderer. From the traditonal Crow rituals on federal reservation lands to the government seat in Billings, Phoebe moves between two wildly different cultures and realities, following leads that put her understanding of the world as well as her life in jeopardy.
