Indian Territory -- 1905 / Rural Oklahoma -- 1915:  A simple hunting trip to a vacant farm... that turns up an old boot containing bones of its former owner.  Whose skull bears a bullet hole.  Someone else quickly dies, and not of natural causes.  Old death is stirring up events in the current life of Shaw Tucker and his brother James.  Alafair Tucker, Shaw's wife, has experience with murder but Shaw suspects this situation could be deadly.  Shaw carefully sidetracks Alafair to safety- he hopes.
The Alafair Tucker mysteries (and this is the fifth) fit into a gritty period, a rural region, and a definite social climate.  Alafair is a matriarch in that locus with a large brood and an instinct for murder.  The first in her series, The Old Buzzard Had It Coming, came out in 2005 and Donis Casey has kept on going.
Interesting time to pass through.
