Mesa Montanosa, New Mexico, March 1945 an ambush of a Military convoy transporting radioactive material is interrupted by 2 state policemen on patrol.  In the ensuing gun battle both are mortally wounded, but due to the intervention of the German hijacker, and with the assistance of a local native medicine man Lee Nez, New Mexico’s first Navajo officer survives the night, transformed in a way that will affect the course of the rest of his potentially very long life.

What follows is a tale of revenge and retribution, influenced by Navajo customs and culture oh, and by a bit of vampirism too 

For although Lee survived that night, it was not unscathed. When the story picks up more than fifty years later Lee Nez, now known as Leonard Hawk, is still on the trail of his  mortal (or is that immortal) enemy , the German spy who had been responsible for changing the course of Lee's life by making him a vampire ...sort of. 

Review to follow...
