Before his prison release, Shadow's wife and best friend are killed in an accident. On the plane home to the funeral, he meets a beguiling stranger who knows everything about him. Furthermore, "Mr. Wednesday" wants to be his bodyguard. When Shadow accepts, this is when Mr. W's schemes become far more dangerous and dark than Shadow could have imagined. For beneath the surface of everyday life is a war fought for the very soul of America.
