Three Daggers Dripping: A Donald Youngblood Mystery
"Eight years ago, Sheila Buckworth's ten-year-old son, Michael, disappeared with another young boy. The authorities classified them as runaways--no ransom note, no reason to believe they were abducted. Now, Sheila thinks she knows what happened to Michael and wants Donald Youngblood to prove it.
The case soon intersects with an FBI terrorist investigation when Youngblood and sheriff's deputy Bill Two-Feathers find themselves in the desert of southwest Arizona on the Tohono O'Odham Indian Reservation uncovering a sinister plot to inflict damage on the U.S. government. Racing against time to discover the lair of the terrorist group known as the Midnight Riders, Youngblood and the FBI must thwart the plan before the group can execute its "big event."
Meanwhile, Youngblood's adopted daughter, Lacy, asks him to investigate the death of a classmate. Clay Carr, a local all-state football player, has crashed his car and killed his girlfriend. As Clay remains in a coma, Youngblood learns the crash was no accident. Working with his police-detective wife, Mary, he travels through a maze of dead ends trying to find the person responsible.
Juggling two cases at the same time is nothing new for Donald Youngblood, who once again proves he is up to the tast."--BOOK JACKET.
