A Desperate Stand…At age forty-two, Captain Ethan Brandish had finally given up his command of Fort Lowell, deep in the Apache territory of Arizona. He knew there had to be more to life than constantly battling rattlesnakes and renegades, and now he would find out what it was. But the vicious Apache leader Yellow Shirt had another fate in store for Brandish. He and a group of renegade warriors had attacked an isolated stage station and ridden off just before Brandish arrived on the scene. Even though he knew the Apaches were still out there – watching and waiting – Brandish couldn’t leave the few wounded survivors to die. He had to do what he could . . . even if it meant dying when Yellow Shirt came back.

At first glance, he was a fine figure of a man. Even the butcher knife buried in the middle of his chest didn’t seriously detract from his good looks. But that corpse, nude except for a pair of mismatched socks–and the butcher knife , of course–is trouble with a capital T for Leroy MacPherson, in whose wheat field the body is dumped, and rest of his extended family. It’s also trouble for the opponents of the nuclear waste depository the DOE plans to build in the Texas Panhandle. The victim is Charlton Price-Leigh III, whose job it is–or was–to persuade local residents that burying radioactive waste in their backyards presented very little danger. That’s not what MacPhearson and his neighbors believe, and its not what attorney John Lloyd Branson believes either. When John Lloyd and his legal clerk, Lydia Fairchild, take on MacPhearson’s defense, they find themselves entangled in a series of deceptions. Whatever they see, whatever a witness says, can not be trusted. Even the victim cannot be trusted.

Daven Carrickson grew up as a beggar in the filthy alleys beneath the shadows of the palace. He’s the son of a known thief, disgraced and despised.
