"Part paranormal/religious thriller, part Native American ethnography, this is an exciting and atmospheric excursion through 'cataclysm-causing artifact' literary territory." --Library Journal starred review
"Building on foundations of the supernatural, art, religion, and Native American lore, the authors have crafted a fascinating world in which the Unchanged ("normal" humans) live side by side with vampires and shapeshifters....Rozan and Dews write seamlessly and make a good team in the telling of this amalgam of history and the supernatural." --Deadly Pleasures

An ancient and mysterious Native American ("just say it: Indian") mask is on the market at Sotheby's, but its authenticity is questioned, and a girl mysteriously dies in close proximity to it. An eclectic collection of Shifters, Noantri vampires, and a Jesuit priest come together to find the original mask, learn of the forgery of the new one, stop an incredibly risky cult, and solve a murder.
Livia is excited to be allowed to view a very rare and ancient Iroquois mask of a wolf at Sotheby's as it is getting ready to go to auction. However, her Noantri skills lead her to believe that the mask is a fake. When a young woman who is getting the artifacts ready is brutally murdered by what looks like and animal attack and Spencer and his new boyfriend Dr. Michael Bonnard are attacked by a wolf in Central Park, things get more and more complicated.
Michael and his brother Edward are twins and Mohawk Indians. They have gone their separate ways, though, with Michael taking the path of science and becoming a researcher and Edward following his Indian roots and beliefs. Both are also shapeshifters. Michael has been using science to try to understand why shapeshifting occurs and trying to identify others who might possess the gene. Edward is more interested in recreating the ceremony that made them shifters and making new shifters wholesale so that they can throw the white men off the continent.
All parties are in a mad dash to try to find the real Iroquois wolf mask, though each has a different agenda. Michael fears that Edward's plan will set up Indian people for persecution whether or not they have the shifting gene. The Noantri know what it is like for those who are different to be exposed and are eager to help keep that exposure from happening. Edward needs the mask to fulfill his vision for an Indian controlled future.
The pace in this thriller was fast. The information about Indian Art and those who collect it added richness and depth to the story. And, who doesn't want to believe that the Catholic Church is filled with secrets? I haven't read the first book in this series but, now, I really want to. I need to find out how these three characters became friends and what it was that brought them together.
