Betrayal at the Buffalo Ranch
Even though Deputy Sheriff Lance Smith, Sadie’s love interest, suspects a link to the Buffalo Ranch, he can find little evidence to make an arrest. And when a rare white buffalo calf is born on the ranch and immediately disappears, Sadie’s instincts tell her something is wrong—and she sets out to prove it. Her suspicions—and fears of more violence—escalate when a former schoolmate returns to Oklahoma to visit her ailing father and finds employment at the ranch. Will she be the next victim?
Drawn deeper and deeper into danger, Sadie uncovers an unparalleled web of greed and corruption. It will take all of her investigative skill to set things straight—assuming she and her wolfdog can stay alive long enough to succeed.
“Betrayal at the Buffalo Ranch is a fast-moving and suspenseful mystery that unfolds in a contemporary Native American community that contains people like Sadie Walela and her boyfriend Lance Smith, people who become heroes because sometimes heroes are what’s needed.”—Thomas Perry, author of The Bomb Maker
“A compelling, tautly written, and hard-to-put-down mystery. Betrayal at the Buffalo Ranch takes you into the lives and culture of modern-day Cherokees, all while keeping you guessing and turning the pages until the very end. Sara Sue Hoklotubbe just gets better and better.”—Margaret Coel, New York Times best-selling author of Winter’s Child
