They say you can't go back home, but Marin Sinclair, end-of-life doula, never felt she had the right to call the Navajo reservation home, and she certainly never expected that answering a plea for help from a long ago friend would put her life in jeopardy. Dinetah, the Navajo Nation, holds some dark memories for her, but what about her life then would make anyone want to kill her?
Sgt. Justin Blue Eyes of the Navajo Nation Police shares a connection with Marin from the past, and he has the same questions plus a few, like why the Nuclear Regulatory Commission would send a government agent to investigate abandoned uranium mines on reservation land. But first, he needs to find Marin, and it looks like she's gone off the grid--on her own in the Lukachukai mountains in Navajoland with a killer close behind.
