Product Description: When Sadie Walela learns that her new neighbor in Cherokee Country, Angus Clyborn's Buffalo Ranch, offers rich customers a chance to kill buffalo for fun, she is horrified. No good can surely come from this. It doesn't, and murder soon follows.
Even though Deputy Sheriff Lance Smith, Sadie's love interest, suspects a link to the Buffalo Ranch, he can find little evidence to make an arrest. And when a rare white buffalo calf is born on the ranch and immediately disappears, Sadie's instincts tell her something is wrong--and she sets out to prove it. Her suspicions—and fears of more violence--escalate when a former schoolmate returns to Oklahoma to visit her ailing father and finds employment at the ranch. Will she be the next victim?
Drawn deeper and deeper into danger, Sadie uncovers an unparalleled web of greed and corruption. It will take all of her investigative skill to set things straight—assuming she and her wolfdog can stay alive long enough to succeed.
