Something has shattered the spirit of the people on the shores of Lake Koshkonong. Eric Redfeather, returning from the Reservation to make a new home and Jenna Taylor, pastor of the local church, delve into the dark history that created the community’s emotional prison. If only they can find the key.
They meet new neighbors and learn of Eric’s Native American mother, Carissa, adopted by a gangland couple from Chicago, the threat of a ‘hit’ put out on Carissa and Eric when he was born, and the role the Lake Koshkonong church played in a cover-up, causing members to become suspicious and reclusive.
With the stories of his heritage, Eric wins the hearts of the children and the community. And, through his and Jenna’s love for one another, they are able to bring her flock back to the church, filled with forgiveness.
Three women have gone missing from a small town in Wisconsin. The police chief seems indifferent to his people disappearing.

She receives a ‘sign’ of murder at each woman’s home. While in pursuit of the serial killer Jesse discovers more disappearances and long sought answers to her own past and future.
Two bodies are found at the foot of the giant troll statue in Seattle with their necks snapped, like a fox strikes its prey. Agent Jessica Tyson, with a special gift, moves into the gentle neighborhood of Queen Anne Hill and queries the minds of the kind folks there, in search of a dark soul with a twisted sense of reality.
One suspect becomes her lover, as others surface, including a kind philanthropist, spinning children’s tales of the Queen Anne Fox. For Jessica the path leading to the killer is filled with shadows of her past and life lessons for a brighter future.
