The sixth gripping mystery featuring part-Hopi computer hacker Laura Winslow. When a reclusive Navajo and his female companion turn up dead - an apparent murder/suicide - Laura and her lover, policeman Nathan Brittles, take on the case. But things aren't always as they seem, and this time, with a mythical demon thrown into the mix, Laura may be in over her head.
A computer hacker and registered PI, Laura Winslow has seen death before, but it never looked quite like the apparent murder-suicide of a reclusive Navajo and his female companion. A refugee from a violent world, she has become ensnared in an investigation she should steer clear of, joining her lover, policeman Nathan Brittles, in an attempt to make sense of a bloody puzzle where the pieces don't fit. Because the signposts on the twisted path to the truth warn of the impossible - a demon, a skinwalker on the prowl - as Laura Winslow follows a trail leading to the darkest corners of a gambling palace, chasing a phantom she cannot believe in . . . until it's her turn to die.
