The cheerful sign at the city limits nears the only stop light reads "Welcome to Havana, Oklahoma, population 1,700." Despite the lighthearted welcome, death is no stranger to this small town. Crime, however, seems as alien as the meanest streets of the distant inner cities. Here children roam carefree until bedtime. Neighbors chat with genuine care over back fences. Virtually all doors are left unbolted and unchecked at night . and a mysterious, leather-clad phantom haunts the midnight highways on an antique Indian Motorcycle. Three treasured citizens have died grisly "accidental" deaths over a weekend's time and the town's beloved only doctor has vanished. Assistant District Attorney Mike Wind's Native American instincts tell him that something other than tragic coincidence is amiss. Teamed with high school sweetheart and brilliant chemist Allie Lamareaux, Wind uncovers a bizarre alchemy of environmental crime and greed transformed to illness, insanity and murder.
