An old enemy, believed to be dead, is back from the Afterlife to challenge Zagor, claiming that the Great Spirit chose him as the chief of all the tribes of Darkwood. His being back to life is the proof of that. In a dramatic duel in front of all the sakems of the forest, Zagor is defeated in the most unbelievable way... But something that happened in the past is now influencing the present: before these events, the Spirit-with-the-Hatchet had been involved in the fight against a Russian nobleman, Count Zalacenko, determined to track down a community of Polish refugees, political enemies of the Czarist regime the rules Poland. Is there a connection between these events? Only the tragic finale of tense and adrenalinic story will tell.
