Mysterious monoliths in Southern Colorado…legends of a "White Shell Women"...a corpse… If magic and mystery are your cup of tea, you'll love White Shell Women: A shaman Mystery.
Protagonist Charlie has been warned to stay away from the statues…but of course, that only makes them irresistible to him. He does go near them, and in this book you'll find the consequences. Combining ancient and modern mystical elements, Native American lore, and classic mystery-genre tropes, James D. Doss comes up with a really unique story. The narrator here is Romy Nordinger, whose high voice has a certain efficient quality: She bustles, rather than reads the story through.
The two sandstone monoliths towering over the southern Colorado landscape are wrapped in ancient mystery. To the local tribes, they are the Twin War Gods, sons of the moon goddess, White Shell Woman.
Legends tell of strange happenings in their shadows, of lost treasure and Anasazi blood sacrifice. But it is a much more recent history that troubles former Ute policeman-turned-rancher Charlie Moon, specifically the fresh corpse of a young Native American woman unearthed at an archaeological dig.

I couldn't stand the voice work. The reader put inflection in weird places, rhythm was all off. I just couldn't listen to it. It was as though the reader was accustomed to doing children's books ... Very irritating.
