Sewa Tribal Office Heather English finds the skin of a newly elected governor with a note suggesting the governor's demise is part of a drug war. Heather is to be among the next victims.

Her Uncle Mad Dog, who believes he is Cheyenne, receives a severed human hand as a last-minute Christmas present.

Heather's father, Sheriff of Benteen County, witnesses a wild scene on the very same morning that an elderly woman wreaks havoc in a church parking lot. A crèche that is part of a private homeowner's overly-done Christmas decorations is desecrated and the Sheriff receives a death threat. The owner states he is going to kill those responsible.

A rumor is spread that the Sheriff is collecting all the privately owned guns in the county, thereby violating Second Amendment rights. The citizens take up arms to take over the county government. A shootout occurs.

All these wildly diverse happenings promise to make for a wild, and fun, read. I truly enjoy the Mad Dog & Englishman series and hope author J. M. Hayes is at this moment hard at work on the next one.
