Walking Wolf, orphaned son of white settlers, is found as an infant by a Comanche brave and raised to be a proud warrior. He also happens to be a werewolf.
When Walking Wolf loses control of his darker nature, killing the woman he loves and his best friend, he decides to head out into the white man’s world to learn more about who—and what—he truly is. On his journey of self-discovery, he crosses paths with deranged killers, a traveling medicine show, a vampire gunslinger, a fellow werewolf, and historical figures such as Quanah Parker and Sitting Bull. But of all the dangers he faces, none prove as deadly as the bounty hunter known as Witchfinder Jones, who holds the secret to Walking Wolf's origins.

Johnny Pearl, former Confederate soldier turned outlaw, was one of the fastest guns in the Old West. But that was before he found redemption in the love of a good woman, the beautiful Katie Small Dove. Finally free to put his violent past behind him, he and his young wife began homesteading in the Dakotas and even dared to start a family. Then one day Captain Antioch Drake, a rogue U.S. Calvary officer, arrived on the Pearls' property, looking to avenge the massacre at Little Big Horn. Within minutes Johnny's house was on fire, his pregnant wife dead, and he himself swinging from the limb of a cottonwood tree. Normally, that would be the end of his story--except for the arrival of a wandering medicine show owned by the protege of a certain Dr. Frankenstein.
Johnny Pearl Is Dead. Long Live Lynch.

A new client, however, is willing to pull a few strings and get the charges against him dropped, but only if he agrees to hunt down a certain missing person--a mysterious, and possibly deadly woman known as Sonja Blue. It's not long before the psychic detective finds himself trapped in a haunted house, where the last thing he has to worry about is the ghost.
