From the Back Cover:
A flayed body is found in a landfill. This is no cadaver of a helpless victim, though - the corpse is Garou.
The People remember. A man killed werewolves, taking their skins. A blasphemous rite bound the skins of Garou to the body of a Kinfolk, creating a new werewolf. A Skin Dancer.
The Skinner is dead, though. Samuel Haight tried for too much power and was obliterated forever. The children of his legacy are few and outnumbered. They wouldn't be so bold as to invite the wrath of the Garou Nation. They're not as driven as Haight was, and he's dead and gone.
