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 magical Indian artifacts.
The contruction of a new shopping mall uncovers fragements of human bone, revealing possible desecration of an ancient burial ground. The sabotage of construction equipment implicates Native Ameruican 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.
