Bruce DelReno plays a lot of golf. He's retired from the Postal Service and his wife, a nurse, still works. A lot. So, Bruce frequents the Mesquite Hills Golf Club in the fictitious town of Willowtree, Arizona.
One day he finds bones near the course. This discovery begins his pursuit of the killers of three individuals whose bodies were found nearby, but 30 years apart. This mild mannered ex-postman is emboldened by the police's slow progress, and encouragement from his wife, and best friend, an Apache Indian. Bruce's investigating centers on activities of a group of locals who grew up together in Willowtree.
