Homicide - or cosmic catastrophe?
Detective Vernon Moody is a modern cop who likes to catch killers the modern way - with computer webs, databases and common sense.
So he's not happy when his latest case revolves around the supposedly mystical properties of a lost Navaho sandpainting. Or when the painting leads him to suspect an alien presence in his modern world.
No Moody's getting scared and what started out as a routine murder investigation may uncover the very nature of reality - or destroy it forever!
