Montana native David Ward is discharged from the Navy after serving aboard an aircraft carrier in the Vietnam War. He moves to Illinois where his wife Jill has a teaching job and lands a prestigious position at a liberal arts college. They are happy until destiny intervenes.

David's employer goes bankrupt. The birth of a daughter converts Jill from a good-natured teacher into a hard-driving corporate executive who expects her husband "to bring home the bacon." David takes a position at Central State University in an attempt to save his crumbling marriage. Once on campus, he discovers the idyllic school is not only a bastion of corruption but that he was lured there under multiple false pretenses linked to secrets in his past.

When David uses old magic to unmask the corrupt administrators, his marriage ends, he's shot at, his car is rammed by a university vehicle, and an unscrupulous lady named Eve launches a cruel vendetta against him to ruin his reputation and change his life forever. Eve's past is not what it seems.

He becomes ill under strange circumstances. During his recovery, a Hawai'ian sorceress shows him that he was the victim of a crime and has repressed all memories of what really happened to him. While he must learn the truth to regain his health, David also hears the fates whispering about betrayal, the kiss of death, and trial by fire.
