Publisher's Summary

Tribal policeman Bill Maytubby and Deputy Hannah Bond team up again to solve two gruesome murders in this follow-up to Nail's Crossing

In a driving sleet storm, a farmer has discovered a body snagged on cottonwood roots in the Washita River. Johnston County deputy Hannah Bond realizes it's her elderly friend, Alice. Meanwhile, at the Golden Play Casino, robbers posing as armored-car guards kill a local stickball hero and friend of Chickasaw Lighthorse Police detective Bill Maytubby. 

The trail leads through the quarry-scarred Oklahoma badlands to a remote airstrip and a planeload of drugs and untraceable automatic weapons. Also somehow connected are a shady coin-op vending company; a neo-Nazi compound outside Paris, Texas; and a headless janitor in a train-mangled van. As the net tightens, the smugglers get wind of their pursuers and converge on Maytubby and Bond at Greasy Bend Bridge.

An Excellent Book!

A fast paced thriller/police procedural! Better than Nails Crossing, with more humor and better interaction between Bond and Maytubby. I opted to go with the audiobook this time, and I'm glad I did. Bramhall is perfect for the geographical setting and the cast of Texas/Oklahoma characters. The storyline moves very quickly and Bramhall's pace allowed me to follow the action without breaking a nail. I find Bond and Maytubby endearing characters. Bond reminds me of Sheriff Gunderson of Fargo- stoic, no-nonsense, and completely unafraid (if a little bit crazy). Maytubby is intelligent, ingenious, much more personable, and is central to this story. I certainly would not want these two dogged enforcement officers on my tail for some alleged wrongdoing! I really enjoyed Lackey's latest and can't wait for the next installment!

Frankly it was only ok

My mind wandered so much. i did like the narrator. Honesty the book seemed to lack the ability to interest me and not much story line.

Dynamic Duo Deals with Dirty Deeds

I love this series, and I sure do hope that there will be more to come. The descriptions of the atmosphere and towns in Oklahoma (even including drinking from Frankoma pottery cups) are spot on. The close friendship between Chickasaw Lighthorse Police detective Bill Maytubby and Johnston County deputy Hannah Bond is professional, yet close. The respect and care for one another is obvious. Both have their hands tied behind their backs most of the time, but even being warned off the cases, they work circles around the actual police assigned to do the investigations. It's the "care" factor. I also appreciate the unique and mostly clean romance between Bill Maytubby and Jill Milton, an African American woman who works for the Chickasaw Nation as a nutritionist. It is clear that they sleep together, but we are spared any graphic descriptions, instead we're given sweet and funny indications such as "let's just burn the squash". 😂 When Hannah Bond's elderly friend, Alice is found murdered, Hannah can't figure out who would want to kill her. Then when Bill Maytubby responds to a murder and robbery at the tribal casino, he learns that a good friend has been murdered leaving a wife and children behind. But the setup wasn't what it was made out to be. It wasn't armored car guards at all. I laughed at Maytubby's disguises as he pursured the killers. The investigation led him all over the place. Excellent mystery and hair-raising conclusion!

Greasy Bend

This is the second book In this series. This is a great series to follow. I liked both books so far . This one better because I know everyone better. I like how they work together. Books with Indian police are interesting. I think you have to pay close attention to keep up with everything. I highly recommend this book. Mark Bramhall does an excellent job narrating this book. Until I found this series I didn't know about him. He is a great narrator. If my review is any help will you please click on the helpful link below. Thank you.

a nice mystery

well done over all but inaccuracies in the guns and ammunition which featured in the story kept me from giving it five stars. I would definitely listen to another book in this series

More native rituals and history

I am really enjoying this series. Enjoy the characters, and development, but there is no Chipawaw history or tribal enrollment. Which is what I really love about Tony Hillarman. I love the native characters and what they bring to the story.
