    schema:description "Shadow Moon is a convict in prison; he is released from prison the day after his wife and best friend are killed together in a car accident. When he is informed of the death of his wife and friend by the Warden of the prison, Shadow seems numb, unable to process the information. He merely nods. The warden informs him he will be released from prison a few days early to see to his wife's affairs. Through a series of odd circumstances, Shadow finds himself sitting on a plane next to a man who seems to know a lot about him. The man calls himself Mr. Wednesday, but implies that is not entirely his real name. Mr. Wednesday offers Shadow a job working for him. Life as Wednesday's bodyguard, driver and errand boy is far more interesting and dangerous than Shadow ever imagined. Soon Shadow learns that the past never dies ... and that beneath the placid surface of everyday life a storm is brewing - an epic war for the very soul of America - and that he is standing squarely in its path."@en ;
