Publisher's Summary

After a police shootout where she killed a man, criminologist Maggie Tall Bear Sloan retires from the force to enjoy peace and quiet in rural California. When sets of young twins are murdered in her town, the local sheriff recruits her to solve the gruesome killings.
But to catch a killer, Maggie either accepts her true nature as a "pukkukwerek" - the shapeshifting monster killer of Yurok legend - or more children will die. As the manhunt intensifies and her own family is threatened, Maggie will do whatever it takes to keep them safe. Whether she's awake or asleep dreaming, Maggie is faced with a difficult choice: embrace her heritage - even if it means turning into myth itself - or deny that heritage and lose everything.

Excellent murder mystery with some added native lore! Retired detective Maggie Sloan teams up with local law enforcement to see who is behind the killing of young twins in her home town. Maggie is a bit more than just a detective but hasn't accepted it yet. She thinks she is dreaming and having visions. This was my first book by Peggy Wheeler. I really enjoyed it and would love to check out more of her work. This wasn't my first book with this narrator. Joe Hempel is an excellent narrator and in my opinion, this is some of his best work!
