This is No.3 in the excellent John Cardinal series.

"It's spring in Algonquin Bay, and the blackflies are driving people a little mad. Detectives John Cardinal and Lise Delorme have a different sort of mystery on their hands: a young woman has wandered bug-bitten out of the bush and can't remember who she is or how she got there. The reason? A small-calibre bullet is delicately lodged in her brain.

Then a body turns up in a cave in the woods, the corpse of one Wombat Guthrie, a biker / drug dealer whose head, hands and feet have been removed but whose tattoos are unmistakeable. At first the two cases could not seem further apart. But subsequent clues, and another brutal murder, seem to connect both of them to the fortunes of a small, even amateurish, drug gang that has recently hit the big time under the leadership of an Ojibwa shaman named Red Bear.

With the help of a neuropsychologist, the mysterious young woman regains some of her memory. But try as he might, Cardinal just can't tie the threads together. And Delorme begins to suspect that the innocent young woman may not be so innocent after all, and that her recently returned 'memories' may not be the whole truth. Red Bear may not be what he seems, either. Is he really a native shaman or is he a monster with an appetite for savage murder?" - from the dust jacket.
