Angela Prescott arrives in Minneapolis, Minnesota, with not much more than the clothes on her back. When her powerful ex-suitor, now turned stalker, refuses to stop harassing her Angela was driven to take desperate measures. Sensing a kindred spirit, streetwise 12-year-old Tommy T. semi-adopts Angela.

An absent mother and older brother have left Tommy to raise himself. But the young boy does have one powerful ally, a mysterious stranger who — face unseen — intervenes to stop the senseless gang violence among teenagers.

In reality, Jesse Brown Wolf is an emotionally scarred repair man who, by night, walks the streets alone. He has retreated so far from society that he has created a "den" in the cliffs of outside of town. Tommy has re-cast the troubled Jesse as "Dark Dog" the hero of Tommy's comic strip about his protector.

When Angela is attacked, Tommy enlists the aid of "Dark Dog." Upon regaining consciousness, Angela is haunted by dim recollections of vivid jewel-like eyes and a caring voice. Against staggering odds, can "Dark Dog" work a miracle and save them all?

One of the genre's premier writers made her hardcover debut with this phenomenal novel. Ms. Eagle expertly blends the richness of Native American folklore with the gritty reality of the streets, creating a haunting tale rich in love and hope. (June, 368 pp., $5.99)
