Southern Utah's Kanab is a community divided by the politics of land management. The conflict pits environmentalist David Greenbriar and his Escalante Environmental Wilderness Alliance (EEWA) against the Citizens for a Free West, led by powerful rancher Neil Eddins. But when the bullet-ridden body of Greenbriar is found in a barn near Kanab, Kane County Sheriff Charley Sutter turns to Bureau of Land Management Ranger J.D. Books to solve the murder. Books learns the victim's widow has been having an affair with another EEWA member, Lance Clayburn. Evidence links Clayburn to the killing. Then a possible witness disappears into the wilderness. Books is scrambling to find a connection between the Las Vegas business that owns the valuable mineral rights in the area and the murder. And then a contract killer appears in Kanab.... Michael Norman lives in Salt Lake City, Utah, with his wife Diane. On Deadly Ground is his third novel, following Silent Witness and The Commission.
