Speaker Hawke wants things to be better for her than they were for her mother when she grew up on the Tohono Oodham Reservation outside Tucson. That wish leads her to take John Overland for a short walk early one Saturday morning. She smokes a joint just as two pickups race across the valley below them. And that starts everything that follows.
The next morning, she goes to visit her friend and discovers a blood bath. Dorinda's parents are gruesomely dead and her friend is missing. That spurs John Overland into action, into a mystery where he will meet FBI agents, crooked cops, drug dealers from Nogales, Mexico, and old Indians who live in hovels dug out of hillsides.
It all leads to something he suspects might be a drug hit on Dorinda's parents. The deeper he digs into the death of her parents, however, the more he is convinced that something hideously heinous is about to happen in southern Arizona. Though it is difficult to accept, he does believe one thing: he will not live through it.
