Begin from scratch. Taking a job with the Bureau of Indian Affairs in Tucson, Arizona, on the edge of the vast Papago reservation, Joshua again finds himself on the front lines of a war. This time it's a war between the Papago tribe he is sworn to represent and a rich and powerful politician trying to claim valuable tribal mineral rights for his mining company. While U.S. Senator Jake Lukis threatens to do anything to wrest the rights from the tribe, neither seductive.
Persuasion nor sexual blackmail stop Joshua from opposing him. But suddenly Indian children, and then a nun, turn up brutally murdered in an irrigation ditch that serves as the dividing line between the reservation and Tucson. Joshua comes to the defense of a Papago man arrested for the crime; yet he wonders if the killings could be a grisly warning to him to "play ball"--Or else. Now more determined than ever to get to the bottom of the sudden violence, Joshua digs deep.
Into a web of corruption whose strands touch not only those with ruthless power but even the Catholic clergy who run the reservation mission. And as he uncovers layer upon layer of deceit, he moves ever closer to the deadly answer, with not only his life in jeopardy but also the lives of his children and the woman he has come to love. In the person of Joshua Rabb - tough, driven, and dedicated - Richard Parrish has created one of the most memorable heroes of recent.
Fiction. At once an electrifying legal thriller written with verve and authenticity and a work of compassionate humanity, The Dividing Life gives testimony to an extraordinary talent.
