Porcupine County is nestled into the peaceful landscape of Michigan's Upper Peninsula; a small town where the residents all know one another, and the latest gossip is never something that can be kept quiet for long. But there's one secret that Porcupine County has tried to keep quiet for years . . . and those who try to uncover it sometimes wind up dead.
Deputy Steve Martinez - Lakota Indian by birth, white by association - fell in love with the town after running away from a secret of his own. After finding the love of his life, Steve was able to make peace with his past and find comfort in the land that had been so good to his people. The quiet is broken, though, after the discovery of a mob hitman's body. Then, during a routine operation, one of Steve's men literally falls over the long-buried body of one of Porcupine County's missing . . . a man who was last seen over one hundred years ago. The two deaths are seemingly unrelated at first . . . but Steve Martinez isn't one to let a matter of relation stop him.
As Steve probes deeper, he's confronted with problems both professional and personal that could jeopardize everything: his career and his relationship with the beautiful Ginny Fitzgerald - a wealthy widow with quite a few secrets of her own.
Through shoot-outs and death-defying surveillance flights, Deputy Steve Martinez is willing to do whatever it takes to keep the peace in the land he loves, but he may find that - even in the quietest of towns - there are some things that are better left buried.
