Blood runs thicker than water. And drowns you faster too. Dashiell Bad Horse is a man divided. His job as a cop on the Prairie Rose Indian Reservation is just a front for his role as a soldier for the Rez’s brutal chief, Red Crow. But beneath both surfaces, Dash is an undercover FBI agent, forced back onto the reservation he escaped years ago to bring Red Crow down, no matter the cost. Now Dash finds himself entangled in two vicious murders. One involves a junkie whose orphaned children tug at Dash’s frayed heartstings. The other is even closer to Dash – his own mother has been slaughtered and scalped. With his loyalties more divided than ever, what will prove stronger – the blood in Dash’s veins or his need to spill someone else’s?
