Lulu Lavender’s mixed-race family has been slaughtered, and she has been taken. But with the high-profile case of a missing white teenager from a wealthy family occupying the attention of law enforcement and the media, it’s left to sheriff’s lieutenant Buck Shelton and his small, rural office to find Lulu, if he can.

To Buck’s growing horror, his quest leads him into a world he never knew existed, where the tendrils of an ancient evil reach right into the torn-from-the-headlines present.

On the US/Mexico border, supernatural forces using vigilantes, drug dealers, and innocents as pawns clash in a bloody showdown—and not everyone will survive…

(Available in hardcover, trade paperback, ebook, and audio book.)

“Frequently enthralling… But his true masterpiece is Buck Shelton. In his hero, he’s crafted one of the finest new sleuths in fiction: a very real man who finds solace in the challenges of his job when things get rough at home, who isn’t so hardened that a dead family of four can still shake him to the core–and who isn’t afraid to make solving a crime a little bit personal. It would be a pleasure to see Buck again.”
