(The second book in the Ginevra Prettifield Mystery series)
A novel by Cecil Dawkins
The native peace of the mountains is broken by murder. Gin Pretifield, who is part Indian, knows northern New Mexico's Sangre de Cristo Mountains. But she's never had to deal with an enraged bear or with the mangled body of dying man. But when she leads a forest ranger to the scene, they come upon a mystery in this land of enchanted mesas and mountains. Can the dead walk? Is a murder, by an act of magic, daring Gin to unearth a crime? Only the Indians, who have witnessed many curious comings and goings on their ancient earth, understand the gathering confrontation between good and evil, terror and love a confrontation that can only end in the chill finality of death.
