After a 20-year exile, Leslie, son of doughnut magnate Jacob Siconski, returns home for his estranged father’s funeral and the reading of his will. It seems the old man has left all of his $27 million estate to his daughter Mary and his reclusive, agoraphobic older son Charlie, who has vanished without a trace. When a badly beaten corpse found near the Circus World Museum is identified as Charlie, Leslie sets out to discover the truth behind his brother’s murder. Leslie’s search leads him to an Indian burial mound where members of the local Ho-Chunk tribe had regarded Charlie as the reincarnation of a god sent back to seek vengeance on Buffalo Bill. Author Richard Horan has crafted a plot with constant surprises and a large cast of colorful characters including an amorous librarian, an abused aerialist, and a suspiciously nervous naturalist.
