Bureau of Indian Affairs Criminal Investigator Emmett Quanah Parker and FBI Special Agent Anna Turnipseed are assigned to a case where an illegal fossil hunter unearths remains that are 14,000 years old from an Oregon riverbank. The skeleton stirs a controversy when it's determined not to be Native American--which results in some very modern murders.
From the Publisher:
From Kirk Mitchell comes a riveting suspense thriller in the tradition of Tony Hillerman and Joseph Wambaugh, featuring Bureau of Indian Affairs Criminal Investigator Emmett Quanah Parker and FBI Special Agent Anna Turnipseed, two Native American cops searching for justice between their heritage and the law.

Though there are signs of foul play, Emmett Quanah Parker and Anna Turnipseed aren’t looking for a killer — the remains dug out of a riverbank by an illegal fossil hunter are 14,000 years old. Parker and Turnipseed have been sent to central Oregon as official witnesses to the examination of the relics.

But the bones quickly provoke a controversy that threatens to erupt into violence: the skeleton is not Native American but distinctly Caucasian, shattering long-held tenets of who first inhabited this continent.

Emmett, with his Comanche and white ancestry, and Anna, a reservation-born Modoc with Asian blood, share a sensitivity to both parties’ concerns — and a forbidden attraction that’s causing them professional and personal problems.

As people connected to the case begin to lose their lives, Emmett and Anna are paralyzed by their own demons. And if they stop watching each other’s back, even for a moment, the killer may target them too.A greedy fossil hunter uncovers human remains in an Oregon river valley that prove to be the oldest bones on record and suggest Caucasian descent, igniting a war among Native Americans, the U.S. Army, the scientific community, and the Norse Folk Congress. Reprint.

Praise

Chicago Tribune
"Author Kirk Mitchell piles up the murders, with a generous helping of Indian mysticism and the sexual exploits of his main characters turning this into a rambunctious, slightly over-the-top yarn that will leave readers either laughing or cringing, or perhaps both." - Chris Petrakos 05/20/2001
