Creating Thrilling Fiction from Events that Shape Humanity

Our Sisters' Cries

Recovering from the scars of the Iraq War, retired US Army Staff Sergeant Leland Engelmann returns home to the Crow Indian Reservation, seeking solace amidst the vast prairies of eastern Montana. However, his quest for peace fades to black as a new battle festers on the landscape. Native American women and teens are vanishing at an alarming rate, trapped in the clutches of a chilling surge in drug cartels and human trafficking. Engelmann’s teenage niece, Naomi, has recently fallen victim.

Engelmann refuses to stand by as a little-known humanitarian crisis erodes the Crow Tribe, the American West, and the land he swore with his life to defend.
Grappling with his past that is haunted by the echoes of war, Engelmann is drawn into a relentless chase to rescue Naomi and expose the sinister networks preying on his community. His pursuit of justice bridges friends and enemies across racial and cultural divides scarred by social, ethical, and moral injustices. Engelmann’s fortitude and determination ignite a gripping narrative that threatens to unravel the threads binding his family and people.
