Publisher's Summary

FBI Special Agent Anna Turnipseed, a Modoc Indian from California, and Bureau of Indian Affairs Investigator Emmett Parker, a Comanche from Oklahoma, are a team, sent by the Feds wherever there are problems in tribal territory.

This assignment takes them to upstate New York where Brenda Two Kettles, an elder of the Oneida tribe, was found dead in a cornfield, every major bone in her body shattered. She seems to have fallen from the sky, like Sky Woman of the Oneida creation myth. When Anna and Emmett discover that Brenda was the center of a bitter land dispute between Indians and whites, they are sure she was murdered. Their investigation brings them face to face with the dangers of race war, and soon their own lives depend on Anna's instincts and her ability to see the line where myth and reality come together.

    "Move over Tony Hillerman"

    Just a bit to the side......Kirk Mitchell writes about all Native American tribes, not just the Navaho, as does Tony Hillerman. He does it well. He can't replace Hillerman for me but he certainly will keep me busy until the next Hillerman book comes out.

    "One of the best in the series"

    Emmett Parker and Anna Turnipseed are back to solve another murder mystery centered around native American concerns and sprinkled with a good amount of folklore and a bit of sexual tension spread between the two detectives. This is one of my favorites in the series.

    The narrator, Dick Hill, also does a good job bringing the book to life.

    "Intersting"

    I have long enjoyed the Tony Hillerman mysteries with two tribal police officers as the main characters and history and spiritual aspects of the Navaho mixed in. I picked this book based on an earlier review indicating a similar topic. This is a cleverly crafted mystery that again is set in "Indian Country" - that's what the characters call it, I'm not just be politically incorrect. I greatly enjoy this added element to the mystery, which itself is well plotted. The characters are well drawn and I found myself interested in learning more about them. I am sorry that there aren't any more available through Audible.

    "Good Book, Great Narration"

    This is a good mystery made better by Dick Hill. The murder method was a total surprise. The author didn't give away the villian prematurely, and I sure didn't guess it beforehand. Dick Hill's differentiation of the characters was excellent and I was really impressed by his pronunciation of Native words. There was a lot going on in this book and it was confusing at times, but all in all I would recommend it.

    "Narrative crime"

    This is probably a very good book, but a crime has been perpetuated by the narrator, Dick Hill.
    His melodramatic sighs and irritatingly juvenile voices place him squarely in the Narrator Hall of Shame.
