Something is wrong in Sedona. Two intuitive women feel the shift in balance between good and evil, and then start looking for the reason. Something or someone has entered this sacred place with evil on its mind and this has become a concern for the pair of visionaries. They won’t rest until the issue is resolved. The Shift by Michael Harris is the second book in the series involving Sam the Coydog. It is a work of fiction which utilizes Sedona, Arizona as the backdrop for the escapades of father and son serial killers.

Sedona is well-known as a very spiritual place. It is also known as a congregation ground for crystal crunchers, self-proclaimed visionaries and mystics. There are a few true healers here but they shun the media and the publicity that others come here to seek. Two of them feel a shift in balance one evening and know something bad has come to this healing spot.

A father and son serial killer team has stopped by in Sedona on the way north to Canada. With them, they bring all the hate that drives them to keep killing. They have a well-refined method of finding, keeping and finally killing their subjects and are experts at leaving no trace. They have remained at large as they perform these acts while travelling through seven states.

The Shift is a crime drama with a twist involving two women and an extremely talented coydog. This story is about the healers and how they, with the help of a USFS volunteer and his search/rescue dog, Sam, find out what has happened and how to make it go away before more killings occur.
