Iragene Jones, a homesteader in central New Mexico, discovers a bloody, blond scalp on her property. Determined to find out who this woman was, Iragene sets off to question her neighbors, only to find that they, too, have experienced other bizarre events.

Leaving behind her best friend, Cassie—the daughter of a former slave, her brother, and his very pregnant wife, Iragene sets off to solve these macabre events. She and her lover, Alejandro Gallegos, bring all the information and evidence they find to the recalcitrant sheriff, who belittles their concerns and carries on with business as usual.

Realizing their community is on its own, Iragene and Alejandro continue their quest to discover who is committing these crimes, and in doing so uncover additional, more horrific crimes, some perhaps involving the sheriff himself.

Things finally come to a head in Gran Quivera, in the middle of a frightening deluge of lightening, thunder, rain, and bullets.
