What he needs is a new career, not another case. But when Congressman Arlen Edgertons bullet-riddled Lincoln turns up on the Navajo reservation---twenty years after he had disappeared during a corruption probe---Joe must resurrect his failing career to solve the mysterious cold case.Partnering with Navajo Tribal Officer Randall Bluehorse, his investigation antagonizes potential suspects, including a wealthy art collector, a former president of the Navajo Nation, a powerful U.S. senator, and Edgertons widow, who is now the front-runner in the New Mexico governors race. An unexpected romance further complicates both the investigation and Joes troubled relationship with his daughter, forcing him to confront his emotional demons while on the trail of a ruthless killer.Joe uncovers a murderous conspiracy that leads him from ancient Anasazi burial grounds on the Navajo Nation to backroom deals in Washington, D.C.

Can he unravel the mystery and bring the true criminal to justice, or will he become another silenced victim?
