Publisher Comments:

James D. Doss's latest engrossing mystery marks the return of Charlie Moon, tribal investigator on Colorado's Ute reservation, whose sleuthing skills get some unlikely help from his Aunt Daisy Perika's shamanistic intuition.

TROUBLE SPREADS ITS WINGS

Dr. Manfred Blinkoe is one orthodontist with a very checkered past. So when a fellow diner at Cedar Creek's poshest restaurant drops dead from an unseen assailant's bullet, he can't help thinking that he was the intended target. Desperate for help, he turns to the one local who's up to the job: renowned tribal investigator Charlie Moon.

AND A KILLER COMES TO ROOST

Charlie already has his hands full with two cattle ranches to run, ornery Aunt Daisy's wanderings in the spirit world, and his sparring matches with the alluring FBI agent Lila Mae McTeague. Now he's got an eccentric client with more money than sense and too many enemies--at least one of whom is willing to resort to explosive measures to settle an old score.

"Highly entertaining...big money, big gambles, and a surprise ending

will keep readers turning the pages."

--Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

When a local prosecuting attorney is killed by long-range rifle while dining at an exclusive Granite Creek, Colorado, restaurant, it seems obvious that a vengeful criminal is to blame. But orthodontist Manfred Blinkoe was sitting ten feet away and he insists that he was the intended victim. In fact, he claims that just before the shot was fired, he saw his doppelganger--an eerie lookalike--as he has in the past just before a near-death experience. Terrified, Blinkoe hires Charlie Moon to find the lookalike, but before Charlie can get anywhere, Blinkoe is murdered for real.

As usual in Doss's clever, intricately drawn mysteries, the cagey Charlie Moon and his Ute shaman Aunt Daisy share the spotlight.

Judith St. Claire, November 28, 2006 (view all comments by Judith St. Claire)
I've read all the James D. Doss mysteries, and loved every one. The telling of each new story brings to the reader a new dimension in story telling not reached in ones past. Once the yarn of "Shadow Man" began, I could not put it down. This book is a wonderful read, full of surprises. It now rests with the other Charlie Moon mysteries, waiting to be reread in future.
