Summary
Lieutenant Sam Chitto of the Oklahoma Choctaw Nation Tribal Police is a man of the Law, and a man of his word. But he's at a breaking point: his father's murder is ten-years cold; his young wife's premature death haunts him, and tribal police in Oklahoma are being prevented from ensuring the People receive justice. Indian women are the ones paying the highest price: one in three can expect to be raped in her lifetime, and tribal police cannot arrest the assailant if he is not Indian. When a sacred Choctaw ceremonial ground is transformed into an execution site with the naked, beheaded corpse of the husband of a Chickasaw woman and stepfather to her young daughter, Chitto is forced to make a decision that could not only challenge his personal code of ethics but also cost a man his life
