A strikingly original plot blends unknown bits of real history with imagined incidents to create an unusual thriller. Its base is the last American Indian uprising in Arizona in October 1940. At its core lay a struggle for civil rights. Deputy U.S. Marshall and Spanish Civil War veteran J.D. Fitzpatrick arrives in Tucson, a shell-shock case. His job should be a sinecure, but the insensitive local BIA agent provokes a gunfight over registering the Papagos for the draft. Fitzpatrick is sent to the reservation to arrest the ringleader, Jujul, and his band of renegades, but they have disappeared into the desert. Why should they serve in the military of a country that refuses to recognize their citizenship? Meanwhile, a Japanese Kempeitai agent we meet in China is sent to America to stir up discontent among Indians and encourage the Papago rebellion in order to buy more preparation time for Japan's Pacific campaign. All these forces, including ghosts from J.D.'s stint in Spain, collide along the Gulf of California.
