The Leaning Land

(1997)
(Book 11 in the Gabe Wager series)
A novel by

 
 
Jurisdictional disputes, competing agents - the F.B.I., the Bureau of Land Management, and Indian police - and the usual distrust of the citizens of small towns when it comes to dealing with folks from the "big city" combine to make Denver police detective Gabe Wager's life more complex than he'd like. Add to an already volatile mix the fact that the murder he's asked to help investigate took place on the Squaw Point reservation, and what he faces is a ticking bomb, just waiting for an inappropriate moment to explode. After Waco and Ruby Ridge, the F.B.I. is taking as much of a hands-off policy as possible when it comes to matters that might be handled by local authorities. But in La Sal County in Colorado, no one trusts anyone else enough to even begin cooperating; Wager will appear neutral and can act as liaison between all the parties. Things don't work out exactly as planned, and what appears to be a local militia's attempts to keep the government away has deeper and more far-reaching roots.
