To keep their husband and father home, his family gives the sheriff the man’s guns and promises not to let him make trouble. Soon the county fills with rumors that the sheriff is systematically violating Second Amendment rights and seizing every weapon. A local militia turns out, locked and loaded and ready to do whatever it takes to stop him.
Meanwhile, in Arizona, Heather stumbles on the newly elected governor, newly murdered. A note explains that his death is part of a drug war, and his killer promises Heather that she will be among the victims. Her Uncle Mad Dog, a Cheyenne wannabe shaman, is involved. Someone thinks Mad Dog is a drug lord and sends him a last minute gift—a severed human hand.
Careful police work, a little Cheyenne magic, and maybe a Christmas miracle are needed to restore peace on earth. One slip, however, will mean that Mad Dog, Sheriff English, and Heather will rest in peace—eternally.

Didn't work for Me.
I found the book a little too gruesome for me, and too mystical. I have a very low tolerance for mysticism, especially in mysteries. Some interesting characters, but the family members involved in different storylines left me feeling scattered--there wasn't cohesion to the book as a whole.
