Synopses & Reviews
On the New York reservation of the Oneida, FBI Special Agent Anna Turnipseed and Bureau of Indian Affairs Investigator Emmett Parker find the broken body of a community elder who seems to have fallen out of the sky--much like the woman in the Oneida creation myth. But it's a land dispute that's taken her life--and threatening to ground Turnipseed and Parker in facts far stranger than fiction.
An authentic Native American background...[and] a conclusion that is nothing short of brilliant. (Publishers Weekly, starred review) Armchair anthropologists and fans of Tony Hillerman's fiction will appreciate this book. (Post & Courier, Charleston)
This one set on a Native-American reservation in Oneida, New York.
When the body of Brenda Two Kettles is discovered, it seems she fell out of the sky, like in the Sky Woman of the Oneida creation myth. In their fourth outing, Anna Turnipseed and Emmett Parker must figure out where myth ends--and a deadly reality begins.
