Ely Stone returns to the wilds of upper Michigan from the military. A jaded and wounded warrior, he accepts a job as his tribe's special agent and sets off to troubleshoot the ominous Muskcrat Island. He finds love in the form of a beautiful girl, but things only go badly from there. Chinese agents, an old Russian spy, and secretive U.S. Air Force operatives are all after something on the island; and the former Coast Guardsman is right in the way.
Ely escapes death, but, at the end of his tribal mission, he finally hears the "The Murmurings" and must not only face the fact that he is more deeply Indian than he ever realized, but also...that there's something more terrifying about that island than anything he's ever experienced in war. And that "something" came to rest...smack-dab in the middle of Indian country.

Good storyline and pace.
If readers like Cork Oconnor, and walt Longmire series then they will enjoy listening to
this series as well. Looking foward to more of the same. I know the 2nd book is out in hardcover waiting for hope it will be on Audible soon.

Would listen to more books by david walks-as-bear
Just thought story was interesting enough to keep me wanting to press play every chance I got
The audio is in serious need of editing. I am less than half way through the book and have had at least 10 places where the reader stops and starts a sentence over again. One place he even clears his throat and starts over. The reader himself has some potential but whoever did the editing failed to listen to what they were doing, or at least, listen to the end product. By leaving all the do-overs in this book they give both the author and the reader at a definite disadvantage for sales of future books.
I would change the narrator and eliminate the prostelitizing.
None, I domybest not to read books that are preaching disguised as a mystery/thriller.
He could have read the book in a more relaxed way.
Loved this book, up there with Clive Cussler. Storyline was unique and interesting, never boring, keeps you guessing.
The main character who is a native american former special ops kinda guy!
I haven't but I loved his narration and would be inclined to listen to other books narrated by him.
Can't wait for book two, keep writing!
I'm a crippeled old warrior with difficulty typing/writing etc. I used to love reading books, and have read many. I now love audio books.
It ranks pretty high for a first publication, and it is off the Rector Scale for one of our own American Indians.
Raining Bear is my favorite and rightly should be. After all, he is the protagonist in a first person story.
Practice, Practice, Practice! The narration got better towards the end, but he lost his place numerous times in the script. Perhaps it was the Editor, but these lapses were amateurish and should have been removed.
There were several moments in the story that moved me. However, the last sentence killed me. The story was far too good for that ending. It seems the end of the story failed to be published.
I look forward to David Walks-As-Bear's next effort, especially if it is the end of this story.
This book has a good plot, but the reader is just awful, he makes mistakes, repeats himself and reads as if he is just going through the motions, takes the shine off the book altogether.
