Keegan Thomas is a very focused reporter. After her own daughter went missing, several years ago, she is obsessed with helping other children found and reunited with their parents. As a brilliant writer with a seriously intense passion, she has finally hit a wall.
After one case too many, she hightails it for the desert to do a bit of a personal project on the Navajo reservation. What begins as a fairly simple search, turns up serious emotions and a very shady past on the part of many in the community on the “rez”. Emotions run high on the native and “wannabe” fronts and soon, Keegan is in a bit over her head in more ways than one.
Because this is yet another book about tough kid stuff, I, once again, almost didn’t finish it after hitting the first little bit. I am, also yet again, pretty glad that I did press on. I don’t think it was a perfect book but it was an interesting thriller of a story with some pretty well drawn characters. Keegan, herself, was not my favorite (for an intelligent reporter, she had her ditzy moments where I wanted to toss her down the canyon before someone else did) but the elders and others in the community pieced together a pretty good character sketch and made the reading worthwhile.
