Now, after nearly half a century of silence, the one person who can shed light on that terrible incident is willing to talk. Meanwhile, Walkers wife, Diana Ladd, is reliving memories of a man whose death continues to haunt her in the present day.As these crimes threaten to tear apart three separate families, the stories and traditions of the Tohono Oodham people remain just beneath the surface of the desert, providing illumination to events of both self-sacrifice and unspeakable evil.
