From the Publisher:

An overheard plot to do away with an unwanted son-in-law begins this mesmerizing and astonishing journey into the Aztec underworld--a world of magical dreams and mysterious healing, shadowed by a deadly justice.

Aided by two local curanderos, or healers, American anthropologist Timothy Knab embarks on a spellbinding adventure of sacred Aztec rituals and mystical dream journeys into Talocan, the underworld of gods and lost souls. Along the way, he begins to understand the Aztec belief system and the art of healing, as well as the dark past of San Martín--infamous throughout Mexico for its brujos, or witches, and a mysterious "War of Witches" fifty years earlier that may never have ended.

Part murder mystery, part soaring supernatural dream tales--all informed by serious anthropological research--A War of Witches will keep you breathless and on the edge of your seat from the very first page to the explosive revelations in the final chapter.
