Someone has stolen The Drowning Man, an ancient petroglyph that had been carved into the walls of a sacred canyon on the Wind River Reservation in Wyoming. The Arapahos who live on the reservation are shattered by the theft, and the assumption is that someone has chiseled out the petroglyph and sold it to some wealthy collector. But then a mysterious Indian contacts the pastor of the Indian mission, Father John O'Malley, and offers to sell the Drowning Man back to the tribe for $250,000. The messenger warns Father John not to contact the authorities.

The theft is eerily reminiscent of a similar case seven years earlier when another glyph was stolen from the same canyon and never recovered. The two presumed thieves in the earlier case had a falling out and one killed the other. The second alleged thief, Travis Birdsong, is now serving time for manslaughter and his grandfather convinces Arapaho attorney Vicky Holden to appeal his conviction.

The conjunction of the second theft and Vicky's decision to take Birdsong's case sets a chain reaction into motion that will put several characters at risk of life and limb as the story progresses to a conclusion.

The late Tony Hillerman pretty much created the sub-genre of mystery novels featuring Native American characters and this book does not rise to the standards that Hillerman established, but readers who enjoy Hillerman's books might want to give this one a try. They might also want to look for one of the books in Peter Bowen's excellent series set in Montana featuring Gabriel Du Pre, the Metis brand inspector, part-time deputy sheriff and fiddle player extraordinaire.
