The Pale

As the Sheriff of Rocket Ridge, Terrence Logan has it pretty easy. Speeding tickets, civil disturbances, maybe some under-age drinking- there isn't exactly a lot of variation in his day-to-day police work. That is until a strange encounter leads him to a grisly discovery in the desert wilderness- a mutilated corpse found with nothing besides a single white stone in its possession. Franklin Ink, a face-blind linguistics specialist with the FBI, might be the only person who knows the sinister truth behind the mysterious death.
