Winner of the Tony Hillerman Award
Bureau of Indian Affairs Special Agent Joe Evers faces an early retirement because of a botched investigation, but when the vehicle belonging to a congressman who went missing twenty years ago is found on the Navajo Reservation, Joe might just get a chance at redemption—if those behind the disappearance don’t kill him first.
"It isn’t often a first novel comes along that is as sure-handed as John Fortunato’s Dark Reservations. The prose is lean and sinewy, yet not so spare that an occasional startling image or a wonderfully distinctive metaphor doesn’t shine through."
—Randall Silvis, author of On Night’s Shore and The Boy Who Shoots Crows
"Fortunato hooks the reader from the very first page with this twisty tale of murder and redemption. Reminiscent of Tony Hillerman, he uses the Southwest setting to maximum effect. I couldn’t put it down!"
—Victoria Thompson, bestselling author of Murder in Murray Hill
