Hungry Ghost

(The seventh book in the Howard Moon Deer series)
A novel by

On a cold November night, Howard Moon Deer is walking home through the woods when he is accosted by a ghost from his past: Nick Stanton, his long-ago roommate at college, who makes a seemingly simple request for Howie to take a message to his sister, Grace.

But Nick is an eco-terrorist who is on the run from the FBI and his beautiful sister Grace, now a bestselling author, was Howie’s first love when he was nineteen. Their father is U.S. Senator Harlan Stanton and when murder intrudes at the family’s secluded New Mexico ranch, Howie finds himself the prime suspect in a baffling series of deaths.

Fifty years ago, the property where the Stanton Ranch now stands was an Indian boarding school where a sensational murder occurred, and it looks as though the horror of this old crime has returned to haunt the present. With Howie in jail, it is up to Jack Wilder to clear his name and discover the real killer before violence strikes again. HUNGRY GHOST is a deadly family drama of passions, murder, money, and lies.
