After a mutilated Navajo Indian is found on Hopi land, a Navajo cop straddling two worlds is plunged into a mystery filled with drug dealers, F.B.I. agents, witchcraft, politics and revenge.
Evil lurks on an Arizona Indian reservation, and it is up to Native American Police Officer Jim Chee to battle corruption inside and outside the law.
