The Bears Ears area, at the edge of the Navajo Nation, is celebrated for its abundance unique fossils and early human habitation sites. For Chee and Manuelito, the area glows with geological interest and spiritual insight. But their visit to this achingly beautiful place is disrupted by a current of violence that sweeps them both into danger.

An unexpected death on a lonely road outside of Utah’s Bears Ears National Monument raises questions for Navajo Tribal Police officers Jim Chee and Bernadette Manuelito. Why would a seasoned outdoorsman and well-known paleontologist freeze to death within walking distance of his car?

A second death brings more turmoil. Who is the unidentified man killed during an apparent home invasion in which nothing seems to have been taken? Why was he murdered?

A fossilized jawbone, a mysterious disappearance and a blizzard heighten the suspense. Manuelito and Chee need all of their experience, skill, and intuition to survive the threats that arise and solve the mysteries so that justice is served.
