FBI agent Jackson Walker heads back to his hometown to solve a string of vicious crimes, the latest victim being a self-proclaimed shaman. Ainii Henio becomes the number one suspect for wanting to see the shaman murdered--he played a major part in the death of her father. From their first meeting, Jackson is taken aback by Ainii's beauty and soothing mannerisms. When Ainii voices her belief that the murders were caused by a shapeshifter--an evil mystical force, Jackson doesn't want to believe. But he soon finds himself fighting the logic of Ainii's vision--and the overwhelming power of his love for her.
