A rediscovered classic of politics, murder, espionage, for the first time in paperback

On a windswept landscape somewhere north of Denver, Robert Hawks, a feisty and dangerously curious hydrologist, finds himself enmeshed in a fight over Native American treaty rights. What begins for Robert as a peaceful fishing interlude ends in murder and the disclosure of government secrets. Introduced by Sherman Alexie, who has taken a film option on the novel, this important novel is published in paperback for the first time.

In which a hydrologist nosing around the rez begins to follow the trail of some dirty doings involving the tribe's water rights. This is a competently-written book by a very imaginative man who should be doing a lot better work than semi-mysteries which serve mostly as a vehicle for him to explicate his understanding of today's west.
