For Jake Thunder, a paralyzed ex-US Air Force special operations commando, everyday life is a battle. A hard-boiled, hard-drinking womanizer on one hand, Jake also tries to learn from the wisdom of his Native American past while trying to revive his dead legs through holistic acupuncture treatments. When a knockout blond strides into Jake Thunder’s office and demands he figure out who killed her sister, he doesn’t dare refuse – especially after he gets a good view of her legs. But a simple “whodunnit” soon becomes a tangled web of deceit, familial backstabbing and black-market baby dealing.

“…lickety-split narrative manages to be both gritty and cheeky…[with] an effective surprise twist.”
–The Kirkus Review (October 2004)
