On a cool black night, on a desolate stretch of Arizona highway, two last-chance lovers die badly. In these, the final, cruelest moments of his earthly existence, Dan Cody watches as the lifeblood of his lady is sucked down by the thirsty desert sands. In an instant, his heart and his redemption have been blown away by a postmodern witch and her sadistic goth-giant companion on their gore-soaked joyride to immortality.
But even as one life ends in pain and anguish for Dan Cody, another begins. He is about to join those chosen to walk beneath the shadow of the Crow's wing. Revenge will be the sole reason for his return; revenge on two who are speeding into the night in a '49 lamb's-blood Mercury on the fast track to Hell . . . or Nevada. And though Kyra Damon and Johnny Church have embraced evil with a zealot's fervour, they underestimate the power of what's pursuing them from beyond the grave - the rough beast that's now slouching toward Vegas with murderous rage in its dead eyes.
