The crimes are ugly - not your ordinary killings. First, three kids are found in an irrigation ditch, and within days, a dead nun is discovered. All were brutally raped and murdered. Brooklyn-born attorney Joshua Rabb, who became the lawyer for the Bureau of Indian Affairs in Tuscon Arizona after barely surviving World War II, is obsessed with learning the savage motives for such unspeakable violence. Although he's teetering on an emotional precipice himself - his wife dead, two children to raise alone - these horrific events give him the shove and stamina he needs to defend an innocent and powerless Indian man arrested for the killings. To keep ahead of the prosecution, Joshua digs deep into layer upon layer of deceit and corruption, moving dangerously closer to shocking secrets - and a killer. But who in this vast reservation and its bordering locales would be capable of such murderous extremes? With his life on the line, as well as the lives of his children and the woman he has come to love, Joshua Rabb is about to learn the lethal answer...
