Description

Fifteen years ago, Dashiell "Dash" Bad Horse ran away from a life of poverty and hopelessness on the Prairie Rose Indian Reservation in search of something better. Now he's come back home armed with nothing but a set of nunchucks, a hell-bent-for-leather attitude and one dark secret, to find nothing much has changed on "The Rez" -- short of a glimmering new casino run by a corrupt leader named Red Crow, and a once-proud people overcome by drugs and organized crime.

In this volume, Red Crow commits a murder in front of witnesses and the FBI finally thinks they have the dirt they need to put him away. Meanwhile, Dash's loyalty to Red Crow is tested as his addiction to heroin intensifies.
