Blood sisters / Vanessa Lillie.

Lillie, Vanessa, (author.).

"A powerful mystery about a Native American archaeologist for the Bureau of Indian Affairs who must reckon with her past when she is called back to Oklahoma to investigate both the disappearance of her sister and a new case of a missing Native girl that turns up evidence with her name on it. Syd Walker fled her rural Oklahoma hometown-scarred by abandoned mines and a mounting opioid crisis-and never looked back. Now, she lives in Rhode Island as an archaeologist for the Bureau of Indian Affairs. It's Syd's job to make sure the Indigenous past isn't erased so that their future is preserved, too. When a woman's skull is found by local Indian Affairs authorities and Syd's sister is reported missing, she knows she must return home. She doesn't want her sister, Emma Lou, to become another statistic in the rising number of missing Native women cases that go uninvestigated. But not everyone is glad to have Syd home. After all, she still works for the BIA. Class tensions, land disputes, and the aftermath of a traumatizing act of violence from her youth come roaring back. Syd must battle her own demons and those set on destroying her town and her people if she's ever going to find Emma Lou"-- Provided by publisher.
