Meredith skillfully weaves her knowledge of Indian customs and law enforcement into an intriguing plot as various suspects are investigated as well as the murder scene. Deputy Crabtree stubbornly follows leads that place her own life, and that of Running Bear, in danger as all the mysterious elements come together in a surprising conclusion.
Readers who have been following the series are sure to want this book and recommend it to others. I'm certainly looking forward to the next one.
Meredith lives in the Sierra foothills of central California, the area where she places her Deputy Crabtree mysteries. She also writes the Rocky Bluff PD series as F.M. Meredith. The mother of five, grandmother of 18 and great-grandmother of 11 once lived in a beach community that she says resembles Rocky Bluff.
How she finds time to travel extensively to actively promote her books is a mystery unto itself.
