Description

Kanab, Utah is bitterly divided by the politics of land management. When environmentalist David Greenbriar is found dead, County Sheriff, Charley Sutter, seeks help from newly appointed Law Enforcement Ranger, J. D. Books. Books discovers that the victim’s widow has been having an affair with Lance Clayburn. Physical evidence links Clayburn to the killing. Books connects Greenbriar’s murder to a corrupt Kane County Sheriff’s deputy and a Las Vegas business conglomerate with ties to organized crime. Enter Peter Deluca, a very dangerous mob contract killer, who will eliminate anyone who can link him or his employer to Greenbriar’s murder.

Review quote

"Mining interests and conservation forces clash in southern Utah in this absorbing whodunit from Norman (The Commission)...A well-crafted plot with plenty of action, a likable hero with a checkered past, and a magnificent western setting make this one a winner." -Publishers Weekly of On Deadly Ground
"Fans will appreciate this deep thought provoking whodunit as Michael Norman entertains the reader yet also makes a strong case..." -- Midwest Book Review
