A day's work is never done for part-time P.I. Charlie Moon. As if fighting the toughest hombres and nastiest outlaws roaming the Southwest weren't enough, Charlie must still save up some strength—and a whole lot of patience—for the little guys. His latest distress call is no exception: Local widow Loyola Montoya is making a fuss about witches. Witches?

Loyola swears there's a whole midnight brood lurking in the woods, mocking her with lewd songs and harassing her with the carcasses of dead animals.
