Summary Excerpt Comments

Buried skeletons don't often turn up in the small Arkansas town of Cedarton. Especially not headless ones. News reporter Jessie West would just as soon avoid writing the story and revealing her whereabouts to a man who wants to punish her…for good reason. She ruined his life and her own. New Crime Scene Investigator Dallas Starr, a Cherokee with the power to commune with those involved in scenes of violence, wants her gone. Reporters have no place mixing in a criminal investigation. They are liars who ruin lives just for a good story. He knows this first hand.

But Jessie is hot on the trail of this story, and that sexy Dallas Starr, who has awakened her sleeping libido, can just get out of her way. Danger lurks when she begins to get threatening notes. Has her past caught up with her or is she close to finding the killer? Can Dallas and Jessie solve this cold case?

Twenty four years ago someone shot a man and buried him under a bluff. Now his head is gone. Deep in the woods on a moonless night Jessie goes after a suspect, and Dallas is forced to follow to solve the riddle of the missing skull.
