Bloodhead | 2005
"Coyotes got her." That is the official verdict on the grisly death of Charlotte Burnell, a cantankerous prospector who lived and died in the California desert. But when Donnie Daniels and Doug McCoy both arrive to stake rival claims to her legacy, they find more than her ramshackle trailer park. They discover an atmosphere of fear, a string of mysterious mutilations, and a sinister, sun-baked cult. The two antagonists also uncover the secret of the mother they never knew - they are twin brothers, though one is black and one is white. This strange bond of blood fuels their mutual hatred, but it is also the key to to an ancient power that has lain dormant beneath the desert for millennia - a power that should never have been disturbed - the power of the creature called Bloodhead.
