Rosa must be the one to track down her murderous ex-fiancé Captain Todd. No matter how badly her brothers or the rest of the town want to be involved, she knows it has to be her. The deeper she rides into the desert on her quest for revenge the angrier she becomes. When the first fox comes clawing from deep within in her throat, Rosa realizes that Santa Muerta has answered her request for help on her mission. As the foxes continue to appear in their bizarre manner, Rosa gains confidence. With the help of these spirit animals she will be able to track down the killer of twenty-four innocent young women and make him pay for his crimes.
