Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In bestselling author James D. Dosss latest novel, its up to one man to bring law and whats going to have to pass for order back to his Colorado reservation.

“Doss does for the Utes what Tony Hillerman has done for the Navajo.”—The Denver Post

Charlie Moon has been fighting crime—and investigating the truth behind Ute tribal myths—for ages. Now, the seven-foot rancher and part-time P.I. wants to carve out a little more time and space for himself and a very significant other, FBI Special Agent Lila Mae McTeague. Is that so wrong?

Doss has reproduced the land of the southern Colorado Utes with vivid affection.”

—Dallas Morning News

No one—himself included—ever believed the time would come for Charlie to get hitched. Theres only one problem: His beloved, belligerent aunt Daisy. Shes an aged Ute shaman whose own investigative talents rely heavily on help from the spirit world. Ever since Charlie broke the news of his engagement to her, Daisys been having terrifying visions of a murdered woman. Now its up to Charlie, Daisy, and Lila to find out what it all means—until death do they part…

“Moon mysteries still charm us with Western voices and ways.”—Rocky Mountain News

Review:

"At the start of Doss's entertaining 13th mystery to feature Ute investigator Charlie Moon (after 2007's Three Sisters), the spirit of recently murdered Chiquita Yazzi expresses concern for her teenage daughter, Nancy, as well she should, since Nancy was left alone with an abusive stepfather, Hermann Wetzel, who's about to meet the same fate as Chiquita. While Charlie prepares to pop the question to his favorite FBI agent, Lila Mae McTeague, he's also putting together a 16th birthday party for his Aunt Daisy's charge, orphan Sarah Frank. Hermann's murder disrupts the party and brings Nancy to Charlie's ranch, where she absconds with Sarah's birthday gift and goes on a rampage of vengeance. The police chief of Granite Creek, Colo., and fellow officers search high and low to apprehend Hermann's killer, but it's Daisy and Hermann's elderly landlady who team up to bring about the multifaceted solution. Lots of asides and tongue-in-cheek humor add to the fun." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

With his Southwestern series, bestselling author James D. Doss and his dryly humorous, no-nonsense Native American sleuth, Charlie Moon, have brought law and whats going to have to pass for order to Charlies Columbine Ranch and the nearby Ute reservation.

Now the seven-foot rancher and part-time tribal investigator wants to carve out a little more space for himself alongside FBI Special Agent Lila Mae McTeague. Thats right: Charlie has it in his head that hes going to get hitched. That is, unless Charlies irascible aunt, her sixteen-year-old niece, and their visions of a dead womanher throat slit from ear to earhave anything to say about it.

With a bit of romance and full measure of murder, Snake Dreams, the thirteenth in James D. Dosss widely loved Charlie Moon series, is a haunting tale best told under a full moon and beside a crackling fire.
