R Lawson Gamble lives in Los Alamos on California's Central Coast. His novels include those elements he enjoys in a good book: crime, suspense, a western setting, a mix of cultures, a touch of paranormal. An ardent adventurer, he endeavors to absorb the romance, beauty and personalities of the places he travels and transforms them into authentic settings for his characters to play out their dramas across the pages of his novels.
When an early morning phone call from San Francisco brings news of yet another murder victim, her throat ravaged as if by an animal, FBI Agent Zack Tolliver agrees to assist his old friend Homicide Detective Marty O'Bannon with his investigation. Zack enlists his Navajo colleague Eagle Feather but what they discover there leads them to an old nemesis and into the vortex of a deadly mystery.
