A young woman stands barefoot in the winter snow of a New York City street, staring at an anonymous apartment building. Beneath her light coat she wears only a blood-stained light slip. She waits with a gun in the pocket of her coat, waiting for someone she does not know. When her identity is finally established, it raises only questions rather than answers: she is a girl from southern Colorado who had been found murdered six months earlier.One-time FBI agent Ryker Chase is back in the world of shadows and nightmares. Having learned the ways of Native American trackers, Chase finds himself in the middle of a murder investigation in which the victim and her likely murderer are one and the same person. Is Chase being played...or is he the player?"Narcissus In Utero" returns readers to the noir backdrop found in previous 'Shadow Wolf Chronicles' sister novel "A Murmuration of Starlings", with its harsh desert landscapes of the AmericanWest echoing with the language of First Nations mysticism. A dark, complex post-modernist novel exploring image, identity and human duality, Narcissus In Utero explores a world of complex, compromised haunted characters as one might find in the writings of Craig Johnson, yet stands very much in its own world balanced precariously and dangerously between darkness and light.
