People are dying in the Tewa Indian village, but it isn't until Ben Pecos accepts the job as counselor for the pueblo that anyone seriously questions the cause.

After attending Stanford, he has returned to spend time with his grandmother and work among his people. Little does he dream that in coming back to New Mexico, he will also be thrown into the midst of land fraud schemes and a mysterious killer illness.Evoking vivid images of present-day life in New Mexico's pueblos, Slater's first novel introduces Ben Pecos and investigative reporter Julie Conlin, who will become the important woman in his life.
