The Indian’s Daughter
by Patti Dickinson
Political power swirls about in the air of Washington, D.C., fluid and shifting, altering lives and defining destinies. There are some who view power as a means to do good while others lose their moral compass blindly chasing after it. Like a violent storm, political power’s force is indiscriminate in the people whose lives it saves and the people it destroys.
KC Garrett, an attorney in the U.S. Department of Justice, is the daughter of Sam Blackhawk, full-blood American Indian, about to become head of the BIA, Bureau of Indian Affairs. KC witnesses the Secretary of Interior—and leading presidential candidate—Valerie Beckman, nominate Sam, a glorious moment that caps his four-decade career at BIA. But forty-eight hours later, Sam Blackhawk’s Camaro is fished out of the Potomac River. The DC Park Police are calling it an accident, but KC is certain it is murder. She turns for help to her former fiancé, FBI Special Agent Tony DeMarco. Their efforts to find her father’s killer catapult KC and Tony into a vortex of politics and murder that reaches into the highest echelons of government. The chase is on, from DC to Florida, to Bermuda, France, to the Lake Ponsiteau Reservation in the Idaho Panhandle, and finally to Montreal. The closer they get to the truth, the more people die, and KC Garrett finds herself in the killer’s crosshairs.
