W. Michael Gear and Kathleen O'Neal Gear, award-winning archaeologists and international bestselling authors, break extraordinary new ground in the riveting sequal to their bestselling The Summoning God. Bone Walker is more than a murder mystery, it is a psychological thriller filled with the action that have made this the dynamic duo of the historical. They have breathed life into the vanished world of the Anasazi, bringing out the spirit, the loves, and a mysterious world where mystery and horror lurk in every shadow, behind every door, sometimes right before you. The Gears invite you to follow them down the dark labyrinth of the serial killers mind in Book III of the Anasazi Mysteries.

Eight hundred years have passed since the Mogollon holy man was murdered in Flowing Waters Town. The threads of evil spun by Two Hearts are drawn across time to ensnare modern archaeologists Dusty Stewart and Maureen Cole. The "Wolf Witch" has killed archaeologist Dale Emerson Robertson, and Dusty and Maureen must unmask the murderer before he strikes again. But in so doing, Dusty will root out disturbing secrets about his own past that will cast his father's suicide in an unsettling light. With so many skeletons in the closet, even a bone expert like Maureen can be baffled...and the Wolf Witch is two steps ahead of them, drawing them relentlessly into his trap...

From the national award-winning archaeologists and international bestselling authors of The Visitant and The Summoning God comes a novel of unforgettable terror about a murder in America eight hundred years ago...and a power that transcends time.

In the shattered Anasazi world, War Chief Browser and his second, Catkin, are horrified when a messenger from the Mogollon is murdered before divulging a secret concerning Poor Singer's prophecy. With his entire world in peril, Browser must determine who could want the young Mogollon warrior dead. But whom can he trust? The matron Blue Corn, or her conniving war chief? The Mogollon elder, who has his own desperate agenda? If they can find the answer, perhaps he can save their world.
Plots swirl like smoke from a pinon fire as one by one, they uncover secrets that people would kill to protect. As they hunt, they, too, are the hunted. Shadow Woman skulks through the night, teasing and luring them on. More than anything else she needs to trick her twin sister, Obsidian, into becoming the ritual sacrifice that will save the life of the old witch, Two Hearts.
Evil circles in time. What was past is present. In the modern world, archaeologist Dale Emerson Robertson is lured to Chaco Canyon on a frosty Halloween night. There, in the shadowed depths of the great kiva at Casa Rinconada, the Wolf Witch is waiting, and murder is on his mind.
The next day Dale's body is found buried upside down in an excavated site in Chaco. The way the corpse has been treated reeks of Southwestern witchcraft - a fact the federal investigators find difficult to believe. To archaeologist Dusty Stewart, Dale was more than a colleague, he was the man who stepped in and raised Dusty after his father's suicide. Vowing to hunt the killer down, Dusty must call upon Dr. Maureen Cole, the famous Canadian physical anthropologist, to help him uncover the truth of Dale's murder. Their sole allies at Chaco Canyon will be Park Superintendent Rupert Brown and Ranger Maggie Walking Hawk Taylor. Of Puebloan descent, they, too, can read the signs of impending evil. To Dusty's dismay, the clues are hidden in his troubled past. He and Maureen must piece together the truth of his childhood as they dig into the Wolf Witch's lair. How can they know that a yucca hoop is being drawn tight around them, a hoop that will ensnare them in the Wolf Witch's final quest for revenge?
