What Tony Hillerman has done for the Navajo tribes of the American Southwest, James Doss seems intent on pulling off for the Utes of Colorado--creating mysteries that are as unique and different as the people and the lands they inhabit. His second book about Ute policeman Charlie Moon is full of dark myth and modern murder, all about the means people invent to fill up the holes in their lives. If you missed it, Doss's equally impressive first book about Moon, The Shaman Sings, is also available in paperback.From the Back Cover:
Darkness is falling upon Colorado's Ute reservation...and local rancher and tribal investigator Charlie Moon fears for his native land, his people--and his own life.
"HARROWING...SUSPENSEFUL."--New York Times Book Review
Moon is no stranger to the mysterious ways of the spirit world. But why is prize livestock being ritualistically butchered in the Canyon of the Spirit? That's what Granite Creek's chief of police Scott Parish wants to find out...before human blood begins to spill.
"A mystery that combines the ancient and the modern, the sacred and the profane, with grace and suspense."--Publishers Weekly
Enter Moon's aunt and aging Ute shaman Daisy Perika. For only she who communes with the ancient spirits can truly comprehend the events that have happened upon Native American lands--and the even greater evil that is yet to be unleashed...
"This is Hillerman country...but Doss is gaining...I hope these shaman activities go on for a long time."--Boston Globe
