Stone ButterflyBook - 2006
Called in by his aunt, Ute tribal elder Daisy Perika, when she experiences a terrifying vision of unnatural death, part-time investigator Charlie Moon, aided by FBI Special Agent Lila Mae McTeague, launches a probe into the killing of an elderly Nevada man, whose body is found with the prime suspect, a teenage orphan girl who is the child of Charlie's old friend. Reprint.
Daisy Perika is no stranger to eerie dreams, but when she has a nightmare, lives could be at stake. Convinced that her visions of a wisp-thin girl with blood dripping from her hands are omens, the old woman calls on her nephew, Charlie Moon.
A part-time tribal investigator and full-time Colorado rancher, Moon is often skeptical of his aunt's mystical ways. And this time, much as he wants to believe her, Daisy just can't get a clear vision of the girl's face. Moon is ready to give up…until he gets a call about Sarah Frank.
An Ute-Papago orphan that fits Daisy's vision, Sarah seems to be involved in a very real murder. But by the time Moon crosses the border to investigate, he's too late: Not only has Sarah vanished with a one-of-a-kind family heirloom, but Moon isn't the only ones on her trail…
