Bob Reynolds doesn't recognize the body in the creek, but he does recognize the danger of it. He's a newcomer to town, and not entirely on good footing with the sheriff. So far, he's kept his head down. But he has other interests than drinking and spending his inheritance, including one that goes by the name Tammy Fay Smith and who may have caught the sheriff's eye as well. Bob would rather pretend he never saw the body, but when it disappears he begins to doubt what little he knew about this secretive town. he can't just forget the body, despite the advice he's given to do so --- and despite the evidence to suggest that he might be disappearing along with it.

Rodeo Grace Garnet lives with his old dog in a remote corner of Arizona known to locals as El Hoyo. Retired from the rodeo circuit and scraping by on piecework as a bounty hunter, warrant server and divorce snoop, he doesn’t have much choice but to say yes when hired to solve the murder of an Indian teenager, whose death is part of a mysterious rompecabeza --- a classic crime puzzler --- that includes multiple killings, cold-blooded betrayals and low-down scheming, with Rodeo caught in the middle.
