Overview

Park Service surveyor and former FBI forensic specialist Jack Randall finds himself swept away in a diabolical journey through a mystical primitive world. Following a naked man captured by aborigines, Jack steps through a vortex into a prehistoric 13th century Mesa Verde culture. Accompanied by a shaman of the Butterfly Clan, the shaman's lively and lovely granddaughter and Jack's best friend Spade, he searches the American Southwest 800 years in the past for an ancient Egyptian tablet. To find and possess the tablet, the trekkers must outwit a primeval cult whose high priest, sensuous women and warriors will stop at nothing to reclaim the lost stone. Murder becomes the norm. Loyalties are tested. Jack struggles to piece together the evidence--who among them is eliminating the trekkers one by one for their own selfish ends?

The realism of a 13th century Mesa Verde setting comes from Bishop's years of extensive reading about our Ancestral Puebloans.

    Too didactic and writing isn't what you might call 'gripping'. I didn't and won't finish it.

    Casting Shadows with Shaman carries the reader...

    Casting Shadows with Shaman carries the reader along very well, a good tale set in the prehistoric Southwest. The protagonist pops through a time portal and finds himself surrounded by a world that vanished 800 years ago. I found it an enjoyable read.

    An epic adventure at it's very best

    This was an outstanding novel with twists and turns at every corner. If you like an adventure then this one will take you on the wildest one ever. Every page keeps you wanting more. Can't wait until the second novel is published. Highly recommended!
