really liked it

I read mystery novels to unwind. Someone had left one of this series, Coyote Waits, in the place we were staying in New Mexico, and since it's set locally I thought I'd read it. So, have now discovered another good author! Have now also read a couple of the other novels in the series and will read more (only problem with them is I get the titles mixed up). They're not spectacular literature, but they remind me of the desert Southwest - kind of like Nevada Barr, only not quite as descriptive - you probably need to have visited the area for the novels to be particularly evocative of it. The novels focus on policemen on Native American reservations, and incorporate some Native American philosophies and cultural info while describing Navajo ways of life and their contrasts with Western ways of thinking and being. Easy to read, and great novels to take a step out of your daily life and relax with.
