Tribal policeman Bill Maytubby and Deputy Hannah Bond partner again to solve a grisly murder that is more than it appears.

In the shadow of a massive boulder on Oklahoma’s Big Rock Prairie, a squirrel hunter discovers a charred skeleton in a homemade charcoal kiln. Johnston County deputy Hannah Bond and Chickasaw Lighthorse police sergeant Bill Maytubby are called to the scene and soon identify the victim as a young Chickasaw man from a nearby town.

What begins as the search for a killer soon throws Maytubby and Bond into the deep end of a conspiracy that puts both the victim’s family and the officers themselves at risk. While Maytubby and Bond lead a manhunt through moonlit back roads and blackjack thickets, they must quickly decipher the murderer’s next move … before it’s too late.

Praise

“The latest in this superb series is a unique police procedural with an authentic Oklahoma feel.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Among the many pleasures of Kris Lackey’s Maytubby and Bond series is the absolute authenticity of Oklahoma detail. Lackey knows well this part of Oklahoma—its hackberry fencerows and washboard backroads, its small-town secrets, wounded history, and Native survivance—and with deft strokes, he paints it for us. Ten-Acre Rock is a contemporary retelling of the theft of Native land in the Chickasaw Nation delivered with suspense, compassion, and a twenty-first-century flair. Rilla Askew, winner of the American Book Award for Fire in Beulah

“Wow! Kris Lackey has done it again! Ten-Acre Rock serves up a tangled web of a story, unique characters with deep personal and cultural stories, an arresting sense of place, and a powerful grasp of the complexities of Native/white relationships in Lackey’s Oklahoma. This one will leave you thoroughly satisfied but hungry for more!” Minrose Gwin, author of The Accidentals and Promise 

“Ten-Acre Rock might be the fourth in a series, but it stands on its own as a thriller, a mystery, and a gripping tale of just how far into dangerous territory Chickasaw Lighthorse police sergeant Bill Maytubby and county deputy Hannah Bond are willing to go in pursuing justice. Kris Lackey draws his characters with remarkably authentic and intimate knowledge of the land and the people, and it’s no wonder readers keep returning to the series to see what grisly crime this unlikely pair of detectives is onto next.” Elizabeth Crook, award-winning author of The Which Way Tree
