In the deserts of New Mexico, someone has just discovered his inner child . . . and it's about to throw a deadly temper tantrum. When Howard Moon Deer's girlfriend Aria storms from his cabin in the middle of the night, he just considers it another conflict in their tempestuous relationship. But when he finds her Jeep abandoned down the road with no sign of her nearby, his instincts lead him on an investigation that uncovers the dark underbelly of a trendy southwestern town. With the help of blind ex-detective Jack Wilder, Howard follows a trail of clues leading to a men's encounter group known as the Warrior Circle. Its members are prosperous local businessmen and upstanding members of the community . . . or are they? As the pair edge closer to the truth about Aria's disappearance, one thing becomes crystal clear-someone is acting out a murderous fantasy of power and revenge-and Howard and Jack may be the next victims.
