A ne-er-do-well descendant of a Territorial New Mexico governor goes in search of legendary civil war era treasure supposedly hidden near the town of Socorro. Benton Connely and his friends are soon suspected of murder. Sherrif George Martinez, a passionate cop, is sure he's got his man and makes life difficult for Benton until Benton gets help from Reyna Yazzi, a Navajo woman from the Alamo Band reservation. Before the treasure hunting can continue crimes must be resolved and Benton and Reyna must also closely examine the civil war history of New Mexico and the darker chapters of their own lives.
