Vengeance is in my heart, murder in my mind. Francis Ackerman Jr. the infamous mass murderer, is now working as a special consultant for the US government ? who better to hunt a predator, than a predator? With the help of Special Agent Marcus Williams, Ackerman and the Shepherd Organization have been working on a twenty-year-old cold case that connects to a string of abductions surrounding the Navajo Nation. Their investigation leads them deep into the heart of the largest American Indian reservation in the US, where a drug gang has established its own kingdom in the small town of Roanhorse, NM. When one of his team goes missing in the seemingly quiet town, Ackerman has no choice but to declare war... But the threats for Ackerman are not only external. He must also contend with increasingly frequent hallucinations and a growing concern that his affliction is worsening...
