About this ebook

A sunken U-boat, a desert hit squad, a family secret that might bury this veteran forever!

When his grandfather is attacked during a break-in at the tribal center, Grant Casey flies home to Arizona intending to say goodbye to the old man he's hated all his life. But the old man tells Grant to take a run—sending him to discover the desecration of their family's sacred items.

His grandmother's basket is missing and an immigrant is found beaten, with an ancient bone in his stomach. The search leads Grant to a white supremacist organization seeking to connect with their Nazi heritage while they hunt for a reputed Nazi treasure: the stolen bones of Peking Man.

The last man who knew their whereabouts spent a few years in a WWII internment camp not far from the reservation, and indigenous scouts helped to track down those who escaped from the camps.

Now Grant must follow the clues from a map of the stars to a graveyard for B-29's. Grant's family secrets won't stay buried in his quest to find the truth and stop the murderous rampage of a neo-Nazi who finds himself betrayed by the person he trusted the most.

Will Grant recover the most famous skeleton ever lost—or will he join the bones in their eternal rest?
