He's noticed by a group of elderly gentlemen in law enforcement who are dissatisfied with directs taken by local police in the shooting death of a popular longtime sheriff. They hire Les to snoop.

His mission is to probe a crime scene already in jurisdictional dispute by city, county, and federal reservation authorities. His assistants provided by the group of good ol' boys are an interpreter for the deaf and a rookie deputy sheriff, both with their own challenges.

Will Les catch the culprit? Or is he the next target?
