Idaho game warden Charlie Cove is back. He's strapped with post-traumatic stress from events chronicled in the debut novel, Five Fingers. Cove is called to an accident scene by a small-town sheriff to help investigate a morbid discovery. In the meantime, Charlie is perplexed by a different problem - dead fish. The sheriff keeps trying to drag him into what he has assumed is a homicide, while Cove struggles to solve his own mystery. And all the while, a demoniacal antagonist dances in the shadows. The riveting tale of Seven Dead Fish, as seen through Cove's Native American background, leaves you walking a tightrope between the innocence of nature and the evil of humanity.
