From the Inside Flap:

T'is the weeks before Christmas in Upper Peninsula, Michigan, but some big events indeed are stirring for Lakota deputy sheriff Steve Martinez. The normally sleepy woodland town is uncharacteristically alive with activity after the body of one of its most respected residents, Paul Passoja, is found at a forest campsite, the victim of what looks to be a bear attack.
From the moment he arrives on the crime scene, things just don't add up for Steve Martinez. Why would Passoja, a skilled camper and hunter, be careless enough to scatter bacon grease near his tent? Lead by curiosity, Steve begins an unofficial investigation of the mishap, only to discover that the "random" animal attack might not be so random after all. It seems that quite a few people in town had reason to do in Paul Passoja, but the evidence isn't pointing to anyone in particular.

The more Steve investigates, the deeper he sinks into a mystery as old as the town itself. The seemingly peaceful forest haven was once a hotbed of treachery, and ill will only ripens with age. As he gets closer to the murderer, Steve learns the hard way that whoever killed Paul Passoja is more than willing to do it again.

But Steve Martinez's Native American ancestors were never ones to fold, and neither is he.

" Season's Revenge is a compelling book for two reasons. First of all Henry Kisor has told a crackerjack mystery story. Secondly, he has created a vivid portrait for those who are fortunate enough to be familiar with the atmosphere and the environment of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan along the shores of Lake Superior in the Porcupine Mountain region where so many Finnish immigrants settled. This is a special segment of American culture and life which deserves to be much better known and will be after this book has been read." --Andrew M. Greeley, New York Times bestselling author of The Bishop in the West Wing

" Season's Revenge is a great read, a high-octane plot and an authentic Upper Penninsula of Michigan setting. I hope Deputy Sheriff Steve Martinez is going to be back in many more adventures."--Barbara D'Amato, Mary Higgins Clark Award-winning author of Authorized Personnel Only
