This short story is dedicated to the combat veterans of the U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. A veteran who sacrificed a leg for his country in Iraq returns home and rejoins the county sheriff's department.

Because of his artificial leg, he is no longer able to be a patrol officer and is appointed instead as a detective with the cold case unit. He is assigned the year-old case of an anthropology student who was murdered while illegally digging for Indian artifacts near New Mexico pueblos. With no clues available, he'll need help from others.
