Blackwell North Amer When a wildfire erupts on the Southern Ute Reservation, Jamaica Wild risks her safety to go after a Ute man named Grampa Ned who wandered into the area, leaving no trace. But before she can find him, a firestorm forces her to run for her life. As she escapes, Jamaica discovers a firefighter smoldering on the side of the road. The man, part of a hotshot crew trapped in the burn area, sputters a cryptic message to Jamaica before losing consciousness. As the fire rages out of control, it threatens an encampment of determined Pueblo people at nearby Chimney Rock - including Tanoah elder Momma Anna and Jamaica's wolf, Mountain. Since ancient times, the Puebloans have gathered to celebrate a sacred, celestial phenomenon: Every eighteen years, the moon hangs suspended for a few breathtaking moments, ensnared between Chimney Rock's twin spires. Even an all-consuming wildfire won't keep them from upholding their tradition. Jamaica's relentless pursuit of clues plunges her into peril. As the fire blazes unabated and the area becomes a war zone with thundering helicopters and armies of firefighters, Jamaica unravels riddles while eluding an armed stalker. When she finds a blackened body, the FBI enlists her help. To ensure that the Native Americans and her wolf are safe, Jamaica must decode the burning man's whispered words and answer the questions that hunt her: What was Grampa Ned doing on the mountain - and why didn't the burning man stay with his crew? What would make them risk incineration in a wild inferno?
