But something is about to happen that will force him to confront the painful memory of his sister’s death and open him to a world very much apart from his own. A young girl has been found dead on Wakan Canyon. A place Marshall will find that has a past filled with violence and bloodshed. Hundreds of years ago Native American’s fought over the land and even today lives are being taken to protect a secret. Deep within the canyon there is a secret that has been hidden by generations of the area’s inhabitants. There is a secret power that has corrupted every single one of its owners since the beginning of time. Now, trying to find the truth, Marshall finds himself caught in a web of lies, manipulation, secrecy and even death.
