Last year's Dreamcatcher marked the debut of McCall, who has six previously published works under the name Sharon Sala. Morgan Tallchief is devastated when his high school sweetheart Kathleen Ryder is killed in an explosion after a school track meet. Sixteen years later, Tallchief, now a renowned artist, is living in a remote area of New Mexico when Kathleen reappears with a daughter that Morgan didn't know he had. It turns out that Kathleen's family has been in the Witness Protection Program for years and the explosion and subsequent death was nothing but a cover-up by the government. What should have been a joyful reunion falls flat as the two blame each other for circumstances over which neither had any control. Tallchief shows promise at the onset but becomes diffuse later on. McCall also loses credibility by bringing in a star ""spy"" car that hardly seems worth the gas to fill it up, much less the millions that the FBI supposedly spent on it. (Apr.)
