Publisher's Summary

Nick Drake, a hero to believe in, is back! A contemporary western thriller.

It's 1969 and spring finally comes to the lonesome Oregon high desert after an especially bitter winter, but for every new beginning, something old must give way. Someone is poisoning wild horses and a vicious killer escapes from prison. A murder thrusts Vietnam veteran turned wildlife ranger Nick Drake into a desperate manhunt that turns into a fight for survival to protect those he holds dear. Spring quickly turns into a season of dying and life in Harney County will never be the same.

Listen to as a stand-alone or as part of the Nick Drake series.

Award-winning author Dwight Holing draws on his deep roots to the American West and understanding of the natural world to create a masterful story. With memorable characters and prose that crackles like the unforgiving setting, the suspense builds and drives The Shaming Eyes to a climax as powerful as a force of nature.

Excellent Vietnam era mystery series...

The Shaming Eyes is the third book in the Nick Drake series. Like the first two books, I think it is an excellent story. These books can each be listened to as stand alone but I would suggest listening to them in the order they were written. There is growth and development in both character and relationships with each additional book.
In this book Nick (a Vietnam veteran, recovering heroin addict and Oregon State wildlife ranger) has become very involved with the Paiute Indian culture and folklore. The story takes place in 1969 and the author includes well reasearched and dated information for a more believable story.
Charles Legget does an excellent job narrating.
This book has my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION.

Excellent new series. Worth listening to.

as of Sept 2019, The Shaming Eyes is the last book in what I hope will be a series. I believe it will because an interesting new character was introduced.

The series takes place in Harney County, Oregon. One of the largest counties in the US and home of the ‘Let ‘er Buck’ Pendleton Rodeo.
Character development took place primarily in the first book, but more is told about each character in the second and third books.

It takes place during the middle of The Summer Of Love and Vietnam but in Harney county, hippies are not considered cool and cowboys are.

There is quite a bit of Native American lore and recovering addict blues in each book as the protagonist tries to free himself from his heroin habit picked up in ‘nam.

The protagonists love of the outdoors grows as he spends his time as a Fish and Wildlife officer, mixing with the colorful local Deputy Sheriff and the Deputy’s daughter.

He’s not Walt Longmire but he is a sad man trying to bootstrap himself up, much like Longmire.

Thoroughly enjoyable. I was sorry the 3 books were over and looking forward to more.
