The Shaman's BonesBook - 1997
The first to die badly is a woman of the Tohono O'otam tribe, whose body hangs cold and lifeless from a Wyoming tree. It is a savage and senseless crime outside Scott Parris's jurisdiction--until a brutal, unwarranted assault on a Granite Creek policewoman by the suspected killer pulls Parris and Moon into the hunt.
A little girl may hold the key to this inexplicable rash of violence--an abandoned child who has been placed in the care of Daisy Perika. And despite Charlie Moon's calm assurances to the contrary, Scott Parris fears they have all found their way into Death's exclusive domain. For evil is at work in weak hearts, and innocence is now in dire jeopardy. Daisy Perika's warning rings in Parris's ears: many more will surely die, unless two dedicated police officers can uncover the dark secrets buried in a not-too-distant past--secrets of betrayal, of treacherous tribal politics, and of a stolen Power that has made some men greedy and hungry...and deadly.
