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?

Professional reviews

"Author J.M. Hayes gets points for opening his novel with a lyric from the late songwriter John Stewart. The story is the latest in the Mad Dog and Englishman series about a would-be Cheyenne shaman named Mad Dog and his brother, a sheriff in a rural Kansas county. Science and magic intermingle as Mad Dog is framed for murder by an adversary on an online video game. While entertaining, some aspects of the plot challenge one's suspension of disbelief. Lloyd James is perplexing as the narrator. Most of the time his pitch and delivery are right on target, adding excitement to the story. But he sometimes pauses in mid-sentence or breaks up a thought, as if unfamiliar with the text. M.S. (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine"
