In the summer of 1977, Jonah Heidelbaum's grandmother (a holocaust survivor) is murdered in her own living room. In an attempt to find her killer, Jonah is approached by Meyer Offerman, an old friend of his grandmother's, who reveals to Jonah that America has been infiltrated at all levels by renegade Nazis and it was they who were responsible for her death. Once the truth is revealed to him (as well as some surprising facts about his grandmother's life), Jonah is recruited into a secret organization determined to root out the Nazi infiltrators wherever they are.
And on the second day, God created The Hunters, who at the behest of Meyer brought Jonah into their tribe. The Hunters were wroth, “Nay!” They cried, “The Hunt is no place for a child!” But Jonah petitioned his worth and uncovered the dark hymns of a new enemy. Following the old woman’s death, Millie’s light shone forth upon sinister truths while a Great Evil conspired to keep them in the shadows.
And when Millie pursued justice, so the envoys of Evil pursued Millie. Meyer appealed to Jonah, whose faith was strained by the trials of The Hunt; and Jonah turned to his companions’ burning bush and the spectre of his grandmother for counsel. The Hunters toiled to interpret the secret words of a wicked proclamation.
For the love of money is the root of all evil. A trail of signs did lead The Hunters unto a merchant’s lair, where unearthed remnants of the past echoed evils of the present. Millie’s compass delivered her to the House of Offerman, whereupon she encountered Jonah and put a charge unto him: "I beseech thee walk in truth!"
Meyer imparted unto Jonah a proverb, with which Jonah fortified himself. A sharp tongued serpent sought to poison The Hunters’ resolve. Evil hath taken root in the land of Alabama, whereupon The Hunters did descend to blot it out. A herald brought unto Millie grim tidings of Evil spread throughout the land.
Hark! A wedding song rang out to unite The Hunters in a time of discord. “The Hunt is not only about death,” Meyer cried unto Jonah, “It is about life!” But their mirth was tempered by an untimely strike and suspicions of a Judas among them. Seeking the origins of Evil, Millie offered up a sacrifice.
And there was a thick darkness in all the land. As The Hunters wallowed in the valley of the shadow of death, they turned to the stars to point them on their path. Still, darkness trespassed upon the heart of Jonah, which did tempt him toward sin; and the shepherd Meyer petitioned Millie to join their flock.
