It's 1946, and Joshua Rabb is the new lawyer for the Bureau of Indian Affairs' San Xavier del Bac Papago Indian Reservation. Rabb is a Brooklyn Jew who lost his left arm in World War II and his wife in an accident, and he has come to Tucson for his health. In his first days on the job, Rabb encounters anti-Semitism, a corrupt senator, and a murdered nun. When the chief's grandson is accused of murder, the Papagos hire Rabb to defend the young man--and thus begins the tale. This novel's Southwestern setting and Native American characters will lead some readers to compare Parrish with Tony Hillerman. But while Hillerman's books are steeped in Navajo culture, the success of Parrish's debut hinges instead on the strong characterization of Joshua Rabb--which is good enough to overcome some first-novel awkwardness. Parrish has already written a sequel, and readers will be glad to meet Rabb again.
