Murder in Reserve

Native American psychologist Ben Pecos has returned to the New Mexico pueblo of his birth as an intern with the Indian Health Service. Still struggling with the demons of his past, he is plunged into the nightmare rampage of a mysterious virus that is killing the residents of the pueblo, including his own grandmother.

One of the victims, the powerful tribal governor, opposed the construction of a proposed gambling casino on pueblo land. Ben suspects his murder was premeditated - but that doesn't explain the insidious killer now stalking the innocent. Undaunted, Ben digs deep into the motives of power, greed and the ruthless manipulation of science to root out a killer whose deadly agenda may be spiraling out of control.
