Kuyuidokado, Nevada's Paiute's chief councilman, is murdered while performing the Ghost Dance, a dance created by the Native Americans to bring peace and restore their land to the way it used to be.
Nevada reporter Aimee Brent is granted an exclusive to investigate the crime and report to the world what Kuyuidokado was really like. Aimee is eager to travel to Nixon to investigate the murder. She needs to be away from her editor/fiancé with whom she has just broken up with.
Upon arriving at Nixon, Aimee finds that not everyone or everything is as should be. She stumbles upon secrets—secrets that could lead to her death. It's up to Aimee to unravel them before more people fall victim to the grand scheme of That Last Ghost Dance.

"Hayden has a strong sense of action and a talent for ending chapters with great cliffhangers. Her readers are in for a treat. I so enjoyed reading this.
Hayden certainly knows how to take the reader on a roller-coaster ride with plenty of suspense and surprises. Also, nice tension in the romance department. A twist around every corner.
It’s amazing how Hayden packs so many reversals into this fast-paced book. She also hits the reader with many emotional beats. I really enjoyed this book.

I thoroughly enjoyed the read, good story and very well crafted. I got caught up in the story and forgot my job!
I can’t even begin to say how much I LOVED this book!!! I was on the edge of my seat as I read it. Great twists that I didn’t see coming. I REALLY loved every chapter.
Hayden once again delivers a story for our time – a battle of wills over Native American culture and the universality of love. Characters to cheer for and a trail worth the ride. Read it.

I really enjoyed reading this book, it was a great third entry to the Aimee Brent Suspense and Mystery. I had enjoyed the previous two books and was glad I was able to read this third book. I was invested in the story and enjoyed the Native American elements in this book, the characters were what I was hoping for and worked in what was given. I enjoyed the way L. C. Hayden wrote this and the previous book, it left me looking forward to more from them.
"Bryan continued, “During this time, Wovoka, a shaman and a prophet of the Northern Paiute tribe, had a vision. He claimed God had appeared to him in the guise of a Native American and revealed to him a bountiful land, a land filled with love and peace. This would be their land."
Complex mystery immersed in Native American folklore, politics, and the ongoing trial of keeping tradition versus moving forward and keeping true to what's important.
The plot is very intriguing, filled with unexpected twist and turns, holding your attention from the very first sentence. Fierce reporter Aimee Brent finds herself embroiled in a murder investigation on Paiute lands. And the mystery and suspense begins, catching you off the guard. The ending will catch you by surprise, I bet that you will never guess it, and that is the beauty of it!
An enjoyabe read that was well written with an enchanting storyline and well developed characters. I loved all the Native American myth and folklore amongst other things as I haven't read much about it.
I really enjoyed reading this book and about the modern day culture of the Paiute Indian tribe. Hayden did her study of the Indians well. The story is about an elderly tribe member who hates the way his people are wanting the modern ways and influence and forsaking the ways of the tribe of the past generations. The plot is very intriguing, filled with unexpected twist and turns...... Reporter Aimee Brent is sent by her newspaper to investigate a murder on Paiute lands. At first she is denied entrance as the tribal leaders have closed the land and no one can come in nor leave the grounds. And the mystery and suspense begins. She is then allowed to enter for three days but cannot investigate the murder, just comment on the ways of the people. Hold on to your seats as there is much excitement and suspense as we find out who the murderer is. Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for the chance to read and review this great book.
A well plotted and intriguing mystery, full of Native lore and featuring interesting characters. It kept me guessing and i enjoyed it.
