Jennifer Talldeer is Osage and Cherokee, granddaughter of a powerful Medicine Man. She walks a difficult path: contrary to tribal custom, she is learning a warrior's magics. A freelance private investigator, Jennifer spends hours tracking down stolen Indian artifacts.

The construction of a new shopping mall uncovers fragments of human bone, revealing possible desecration of an ancient burial ground. the sabotage of construction equipment implicated Native American activists--particularly Jennifer's old flame, who is more attractive, and more dangerous, than ever. Worst of all, the grave of Jennifer's legendary medicine Man ancestor has been destroyed, his tools of power scattered, and a great evil freed to walk the land.

Jennifer must stand against the darkness. If she wavers even for an instant, she will be annihilated, and the world will fall into oblivion.

“Page-turning and spine-tingling.” —Booklist

“An impressive novel. A gripping adventure, merging reality with the supernatural plane.” —Piers Anthony

“Lackey's a great storyteller. where this book excels is in its heroine. Lacker makes you want to know her--a significant characteristic in the success of female PIs like Kinsey Milhorne, V.I. Warshawski, and Kat Colorado. A very enjoyable thriller on several levels.” —Locus
