Benteen County, Kansas, a hellhole in summer under scorching heat and winds, turns even meaner in winter. A howling blizzard blows down on Buffalo Springs, the sparsely populated county seat. Sheriff English has his hands full because of a missing doll and a dead baby, switched, but by whom? And why? The coroner claims no knowledge, but seems faintly uneasy, especially when a swastika on the tiny corpse is revealed. Meanwhile the sheriff's half-brother, Harvey Edward Maddox, part Cheyenne and thus known as Mad Dog for his efforts to claim his Amerind heritage, has picked up a naked dead body from the Sunshine Towers retirement home and is taking it for a treetop burial when diverted by the storm. In a makeshift mound nearby, Mad Dog's pet wolf-hybrid finds a child's skull and evidence of mature bones. Also a fading ID for a living County Supervisor. Is the Hornbaker clan really as gothic as it seems? And what of the tiny woman in the red shoes back at the Towers who calls herself Dorothy?
