After Waco and Ruby Ridge, the FBI is taking as much of a hands-off policy as possible when it comes to matters that might be handled by local authorities. But in La Sal County, Colorado, no one trusts anyone else enough to begin cooperating. Denver Homicide Detective Gabe Wager is sent in as a neutral who can act as liaison between all the competing federal and state agencies. But what appears to be a local militia's attempt to keep the government away through murder of agents has deeper and more far-reaching roots.

Review:

There's trouble at the Squaw Point Reservation in Colorado, where a Bureau of Land Management agent has been murdered. Park rangers have also been attacked, so the U.S. Forest Service has an interest. The FBI--after the disasters at Ruby Ridge and Waco--doesn't want to get involved. So, who are you going to call to clean up the mess? Veteran Denver homicide detective Gabe Wager, that's who. Rex Burns, who can take some of the credit for getting the ethnic detective movement started with his books about Wager, who is Hispanic (sadly, only Bloodline is still in print), brings all of his taut, tough competence to bear on this tale of right-wing survivalists, battling government bureaucrats and Indian gambling entrepreneurs.

From the Author:

The eleventh entry in the "Gabe Wager" series.
