LOST ON THE MOUNTAIN … WITH BIGFOOT? OR SOMETHING WORSE! THE #1 BESTSELLING COLD RIVER RISING CONTINUES!
“Smith is a writer on his way straight up.” —Ann Rule, author of over thirty crime books, including The Stranger Beside Me and Small Sacrifices.
This Native-American mystery and Amazon bestseller political action thriller introduces Lieutenant Smokey Kukup, former Army Ranger, ace tribal cop, and one of the best trackers in the country. A widower whose wife didn’t survive his three tours in Afghanistan and Iraq, he’s raising his 10-year-old daughter Laurel in some of the old ways, but he resists allowing her to study with a Twati or shaman. Attracted by ancient Native-American legends (or merely urban legend), a group of Sasquatch stalkers trespasses on the reservation, and when one goes missing on the mountain, Smokey uses traditional tribal methods to lead the police investigation into her disappearance. Meanwhile, the lost woman, Jennifer, confronts the real mystery on the mountain: why are there Ferragamo-shoed bodies on sacred Native-American lands?
The fates of Jennifer, Smokey, and Laurel become intertwined when the answer to the mystery leads to drug trafficking—and, inevitably, brings down the wrath of a Mexican drug cartel.
