Stan Miles was dispatched by the National Center for the American Indian in New York City to a supply center in Richmond, Virginia. He was to transport several boxes of Indian artifacts that had been unearthed during a Corps of Engineer project on the Navajo Indian reservation. When Stan was helping unload the artifacts he discovered drugs. He was subdued by the men delivering the articles, knocked unconscious and thrown in a subbasement of the supply center. The story is about Stan's trials and tribulations in the Pitch Black of the basement of the supply center and his brother, Larry's, relentless search to find Stan. Larry's desperate search takes him to the Navajo Reservation and a brush with murder in a high-stakes drug game.
