A mystery novel, set in Iowa, about an ex-FBI private investigator who helps an attractive female Native American cop find out who has mutilated and murdered two Indian women.

Good murder-mystery by Gorman has Iowa detective and lady Indian cop investigating a brutal murder. This murder is eerily similar to another murder committed in 1903 that was investigated by one of the first women "scientific" investigators. Recommended to mystery fans.
Another Robert Payne thriller, this time dealing with a man that was accused of a brutal serial slaying of two Indian women, and the secrets unlocked are NOT what you'd expect.....Great read!
