Publisher's Summary

“Dispute in progress, lethal weapons involved.” Deputy Pegasus Quincy takes the call to resolve violence on a Friesian horse ranch in Arizona. 

Intent on his own personal vendetta, partner Shepherd Malone refuses to declare a murder in a fatal fire at the ranch. Peg unwisely circumvents the law to investigate anyway. 

Two families feuding over water rights, a Gypsy clan suspected of drug dealing, and a blackmailer on the loose, all lead Pegasus astray on her quest to find the killer in a desert mountain town beset by flash floods and arsenic-laced creeks. 

When Peg refuses to stand down, the Water Wars turn deadly, and she becomes the ultimate target. Can she stop the killer before more lives are lost - including her own? 

Enjoy this fast-paced thriller of the American West.

Great narration of

FIRE.IN.BROKEN.WATER
...Lakota.Grace
Amy Otteson..narration
Peg a liaison officer, investigates a murder, trying to console a young girl, and has a coon hound, she adds so much to this story. Family feuds, drugs, blackmail, and the patriarch of the family is a grouchy person. It is intriguing, and unusual plot, with a lot of disputes and twists going on.
The audio narration by Amy Otteson was great, she added the right touch to this story.

Peg Quincy's Back

4/5 Stars: Fire in Broken Water (Pegasus Quincy Book 3 by Lakota Grace)
Summary: Peg Quincy’s caught a new case. A barn burns down on a horse ranch and the foreman’s dead. Shepard Malone’s Peg’s partner of sorts, but he’s distracted by a personal case against a reckless driver. Translation: he’s no help to her.

Additional Comments:
- Peg also has a case of feuding neighbors on the warpath over water rights. Water’s not a typical problem where I’m from, but it’s nice to see what plagues other parts of the country.
- I liked how there were multiple facets to the case. Some things intertwined, while others were their own issues.
- There are still occasions where Peg makes illogical choices that nearly get her killed. But to balance such, there are also many instances of her being an everyday hero. That’s cool.
- Amy Otteson’s performance is decent. Her range of side character voices is a tad limited, but the editing this round seemed better. Peg and Shepard are distinct and unique. It might be just because this is the third in the series, but I do believe her voice fits Peg’s character perfectly. She also has a nice way of reading.
- A few incidents stand out as way more exciting than usual day-to-day occurrences for the main character. Won’t say them here even though if you read enough of the reviews, you can probably gather them. Their inclusion didn’t quite move the whole story to the action-packed category, but it did liven things up.
- Peg still doesn’t have her life in order, but I suppose that makes her more realistic.

Conclusion: Peg Quincy’s adventures are worth watching.

Pegasis Quincy Mystery

I loved the characters in this book and the sub plots that all come together in the end. I did get confused at times but other than this it is a great listen.

Fire in Broken Water

Still considered to be the rookie, Peg continues to gain experience. She’s involved with multiple cases, but the big mystery surrounding the fire and death of the ranch worker takes most of her time.

I really like how Lakota Grace has created realistic characters. I can’t help but root for Peg to be successful.

Amy Otteson was well done.

Worth the listen

This is a pretty good mystery. It's well-paced and suspenseful. But chronology is somewhat muddled throughout the story and it's a bit jarring to have some piece of information mentioned for the first time that should have been disclosed earlier in the story.

Amy Otteson has become the voice of Pegasus Quincy, and she does make an effort to give distinctive voices to other characters, but too many of them sound the same and her accents miss the mark altogether. Nevertheless, her performance is acceptable.

Great Listen

Fire in Broken Water (A Small Town Police Procedural Set in the American Southwest )
: Lakota Grace

As I listened to this book I checked around and found out it was the third book in this series. I now have to go back and listen / read the first two books. This one has enough stand alone qualities, but I liked it so much I want to know what happened in the beginning.Deputy Pegasus Quincy is busy with her career, dog and trying to find a new hom. There are lots of characters that could be unsavory. Several sub plots blend well and keep the listener listening to find out what will happen next.



The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed. : Amy Otteson was a delight to listen to. I will defiantly get more Pegasus Quincy.

Very entertaining police story!

I enjoyed this police story set in Arizona. Pegasus Quincy...aka Peg...is quite an interesting character. Her inner monologue is hilarious. Peg is a Family Liaison Officer, who is juggling investigating a murder, comforting the grieving family of a suicide victim and finding a new home for herself and her Coon hound, Reckless. Love Peg’s snark! The book is well written and keeps you engaged. This is a new-to-me author and I look forward to more of her work.
