Roy gives an overview of the book:

On a brisk and sunny day in January of 1948, a young, beautiful woman has been brutally beaten to death and found in a back alley in Los Angeles California. Her face is unrecognizable. There are no dental records, no matching fingerprint record and no missing person record. The only leads are a tattoo of a blue buffalo on the glamorously dressed woman's shoulder and an elusive dark, Packard sedan. Acclaimed homicide detective, JD Pearson is assigned to investigate the murder. He will find that this is no ordinary murder and that this murder has a mysterious family history of vengeance and death spanning almost three decades and a journey of 1450 miles from Boswell, Oklahoma to Los Angeles. This history includes the involvement of a powerful Native American spirit, the blue buffalo. This legendary bison will avenge this woman's death.....
