A maniac murders with ancient technology

One young Native stands in his way

Clifford Gustafson is a young Native man on a mission while pursuing a degree in anthropology in 1970s Minnesota. His best friend and love interest is brutally murdered in cold blood. Clifford is adamant not to be denied justice in this Michael McCoy Native fiction thriller.

The stakes are personal for Clifford. His hot pursuit takes him on a trip across the wilderness of Wyoming and the fields of the American heartland. He heads straight down the throat of an adventurous, suspenseful journey. Clifford will have to face his Native American roots which come back to haunt him in an unexpected way.

“The crowning event of the previous evening had only magnified his feelings.”
