Summary
"As the deadly influenza of 1918 sweeps through Boynton, Oklahoma, Alafair Tucker is fighting her own war, moving to the town of Boynton to take care of her daughter, Alice and son-in-law, Walter Kelley who have both come down with the flu. While there one afternoon, Alice's next door neighbor, Nola Thomason, and her son Lewis have suddenly and unexpectly succumbed. Alafair suspicions neither Nola nor Lewis died of the flu. The usual motives for murder are greed, or jealousy, or hatred. Or could it be, as Alafair fears, that the Raven Mocker, the most dreaded of the Cherokee wizards or witches, the evil spirit who takes to the air in a fiery shape to rob the old, the sick, and the dying of their lives is hunting victims and bringing misery to the innocent?" -- Provided by the publisher
