Attending the Yaqui tribe's Easter ceremonies in Tucson should have been a dream come true for a Cheyenne wannabe shaman like Mad Dog. But, Mad Dog is accused of being a witch. Moments later, a policeman is murdered and Mad Dog is blamed. Mad Dog's niece, Heather English, a part-time deputy for her father in Kansas, combs Tucson's mean streets to arrange a peaceful surrender or to clear her uncle's name by finding the real killer. Meanwhile, someone has blown Mad Dog's house off the face of the Great Plains. Sheriff English investigates that crime and acts as a long-distance go-between for Arizona law enforcement and his daughter and brother. Is this crime somehow linked to Mad Dog's recent activity with an online role-playing game?
