It's a mystery, but is it drugs? Women? Or is it a more ancient kind of toxin? What the heck is chaga, anyway?
Aikido Sensei Parker, a sometimes private investigator, finds himself in Maine on a bird hunting vacation with an old friend. Only, it turns out the invitation holds ulterior motives: Harry Andersen has a friend who is missing. Parker is asked to look into it, and the chase is on. Missing redheads driving hot cars, mountains of dope stacked in bales, and the most intriguing, expensive mushroom, chaga, push every mushroom pirate in New England on a desperate search to find a mother lode.
This is a classic Parker Aikido Mystery in a novella form.
