Sintesi dell'editore

FBI Special Agent Anna Turnipseed, a Modoc Indian from California, and Bureau of Indian Affairs Investigator Emmett Parker, a Comanche from Oklahoma, are a team, sent by the Feds wherever there are problems in tribal territory.

This assignment takes them to upstate New York where Brenda Two Kettles, an elder of the Oneida tribe, was found dead in a cornfield, every major bone in her body shattered. She seems to have fallen from the sky, like Sky Woman of the Oneida creation myth. When Anna and Emmett discover that Brenda was the center of a bitter land dispute between Indians and whites, they are sure she was murdered. Their investigation brings them face to face with the dangers of race war, and soon their own lives depend on Anna's instincts and her ability to see the line where myth and reality come together.

©2003 Kirk Mitchell (P)2005 Blackstone Audiobooks

"Mitchell combines a great story line with an authentic Native American background in his flawless fourth mystery....Packed with suspense and action, this intricate tale delivers a conclusion that is nothing short of brilliant." (Publishers Weekly)

Intersting

I have long enjoyed the Tony Hillerman mysteries with two tribal police officers as the main characters and history and spiritual aspects of the Navaho mixed in. I picked this book based on an earlier review indicating a similar topic. This is a cleverly crafted mystery that again is set in "Indian Country" - that's what the characters call it, I'm not just be politically incorrect. I greatly enjoy this added element to the mystery, which itself is well plotted. The characters are well drawn and I found myself interested in learning more about them. I am sorry that there aren't any more available through Audible.

Good Book, Great Narration

This is a good mystery made better by Dick Hill. The murder method was a total surprise. The author didn't give away the villian prematurely, and I sure didn't guess it beforehand. Dick Hill's differentiation of the characters was excellent and I was really impressed by his pronunciation of Native words. There was a lot going on in this book and it was confusing at times, but all in all I would recommend it.

Move over Tony Hillerman

Just a bit to the side......Kirk Mitchell writes about all Native American tribes, not just the Navaho, as does Tony Hillerman. He does it well. He can't replace Hillerman for me but he certainly will keep me busy until the next Hillerman book comes out.

One of the best in the series

Emmett Parker and Anna Turnipseed are back to solve another murder mystery centered around native American concerns and sprinkled with a good amount of folklore and a bit of sexual tension spread between the two detectives. This is one of my favorites in the series.

The narrator, Dick Hill, also does a good job bringing the book to life.

Narrative crime

This is probably a very good book, but a crime has been perpetuated by the narrator, Dick Hill.
His melodramatic sighs and irritatingly juvenile voices place him squarely in the Narrator Hall of Shame.

Yawn

The 1st book in series was great, 2nd not quite as good, 3rd ok, this the 4th the worst of the 4 (only one left). When you find yourself drifting, not sure where you are in the story, you know its as good as the others. The native american history in another part of the country than other 3 books was interesting but the story just went on tooooooooo long.

Some will say it was changing the voice actor from the first 3 books, Stefan Rudnicki, to Dick Hill. Now I love Dick Hill. And he did an ok job here. What I think happened is people got used to Stefan Rudnicki. So now change it up to a total different voice style and it throws you off. Now I understand Voice Actors retire, get sick, pass away etc and have to be replaced BUT that was not the case here because the 5th and final in the series was read by Rudnicki.

The wrong narrator can ruin a great book.

Honestly, I cant tell you if this was a good book or not. The others that go along with it have been terrific but I barely made it through this one.

. A very good story

A story that does not gloss over the gritty and gross parts of crime. This story will hold you till the end. It's very hard to walk away from.
