I love the books in this series. Mystery with a Native American twist. I especially enjoyed this entry because we get to see Emmett Parker in Oklahoma where he grew up and learn about several relationships that began in childhood. We learn more about what makes this character tick.

Kept me heavily invested in the story plot throughout, catching me by surprise at the end reveal!
One of the best ones I didn't figure who was the bad guy till the end. And for me that rarely happens!
Tom Gorski
Last in the group of books about Emmitt Parker and Anne Turnipseed. The latter is only refenced in this book and not active. I find it the best of the series...the villian is not identified until very late, the story lines merge well together and the insight into the Commanche nation is extremely interesting.

Another exciting book by Kirk Mitchell.
This one was just using Emmett Parker, Comanche, so I learned a lot MORE about the Comanches. I didn't know their Rez was in Oklahoma, I thought it was in Texas. I learned alot more about the Tribal Finances and it was even worse than I knew.

Good book as a physically and mentally wounded Emmett Parker comes home to the rez only to be set up as a murderer in a money laundering scheme. Of course he is innoncent and catches the bad guys. Plenty of excitement and plot twists but I miss Turnipseed.
I liked it well enough, but it just isn't Tony Hillerman
I liked the story but thought it was a bit choppy
Where is Anna Turnipseed!?
Dark, complex and riveting
