Not your usual crime/mystery! Not your usual criminal investigators! You thought Jack Nicholson was mad in the Shining... wait until you meet Charlie Stillwaters in the sweat lodge. Agatha Christie, roll over in your grave, new sleuth on the prowl.
Haida shaman Charlie Stillwaters convinces Carol Ainsworth, a Vancouver detective, to join him as he breaks his way into a high security prison. The duo is determined to find out who killed the previous native elder before all lightning and thunder breaks loose. They encounter deranged inmates, mystical beings, ancient serpents, wood sprites and someone who should have been dead long ago.
