A Murdering Demon and a Myth Come to Life
After a police shoot out where she killed a man, criminologist Maggie Tall Bear Sloan retires
from the force to enjoy some peace and quiet in a rural California town. But when children are
murdered, she is recruited by the local sheriff to solve the gruesome killings.
As the manhunt intensifies, Maggie will do whatever it takes to keep her family safe from the
killer. Awake or asleep, Maggie is faced with a difficult choice: embrace her heritage, even if
that means turning into myth itself. Or deny that heritage and lose everything.
But to catch a killer, Maggie must accept her true nature as a “pukkukwerek”-the shapeshifting
monster killer of Yurok legend-or more children will die.
Maggie must find a way to trust herself again, learning along the way that not all things are as
they seem, and that some myths really are true.
