Whenever the Feds need help in the tribal territories, they send in FBI special agent Anna Turnipseed, a Modoc Indian, and Bureau of Indian Affairs Investigator Emmett Parker, a Comanche. "A memorable literary pair,"* Anna and Emmett have seen some strange cases, but this one may be the oddest one yet...

Brenda Two Kettles, an elder of the Oneida Tribe, has been found dead in a cornfield, every major bone in her body shattered. She seems to have fallen from the sky, like Sky Woman of the Oneida creation myth. But when Anna and Emmett discover that Brenda was at the center of a bitter land dispute between Native Americans and white settlers, the team must figure out where myth ends-and a deadly reality begins...

FBI Special Agent Anna Turnipseed, a Modoc Indian from California, and Bureau of Indian Affairs Investigator Emmett Parker, a Comanche from Oklahoma, are a team, sent by the feds wherever there are problems in tribal territory.
Their latest assignment takes them to the Oneida lands in upstate New York where Brenda Two Kettles, an elder of the Oneida Tribe, has been found dead in a cornfield, every major bone in her body shattered. She seems to have fallen from the sky, like Sky Woman of the Oneida creation myth. When Anna and Emmett discover that Brenda was at the center of a bitter land dispute between Indians and white settlers who have lived on the land for many generations, they are sure she was murdered. Their investigation takes them to the edge of a simmering cauldron. Flag-waving whites are picketing the Turning Stone Casino and other Oneida-owned businesses. Indians are cruising with guns in their cars. Added to the dangers of race war is the presence of all the money-grubbing interests drawn to a lucrative casino. As their pool of suspects - of all colors - grows, Anna and Emmett's own lives depend on Anna's instincts, and her ability to see the line where myth and reality come together.
