In a remote corner of the Chickasaw Nation, tribal Lighthorse policeman Bill Maytubby and county deputy Hannah Bond discover the body of Majesty Tate, a young drifter. Tate was seen dancing with Austin Love, a meth dealer fresh out of prison, and a motel clerk connects her with an aspiring politician. An oil-patch roustabout and a shady itinerant preacher provide dubious leads. Ne’er-do-wells start dying off. A fluke lead puts Maytubby on the scent of a bizarre conspiracy. This debut from a fresh voice in Southwestern fiction stakes out the common ground between Tony Hillerman, Elmore Leonard, and Cormac McCarthy.
