Description

Archaeologist Dusty Stewart is stunned when he uncovers an ancient Anasazi kiva, a ceremonial chamber, filled with the burned bodies of thirty-three children and two adults. Desperate to understand what happened at this small pueblo in A.D. 1263, Dusty calls in his archnemesis, Dr. Maureen Cole, hoping she can help him unravel the mystery of this tragedy. Across the thin veil of time, the Katsinas People walk the same trails, touch the same objects - and are stalked by a serial murderer. He is a holy warrior, fighting for a dying god, and his brutality knows no bounds. But who is he? And how can they stop him?
