Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Several murders and the repeated appearance of seven black stones, evidence of a Cherokee death curse, are featured in the third adventure (after The Redbird's Cry) of Molly Bearpaw, Hager's warm, laid-back Oklahoma investigator. The Cherokee Nation is building a bingo hall on property adjoining old Zebediah Smoke's shack; Zeb, who doesn't like it a bit, prophecies death for all who promote bingo. Pretty soon, Ed Whitekiller, who had better luck with the ladies than with steady employment, dies of car-exhaust inhalation, leaving behind an indifferent wife, a callous mistress and an upset daughter, who asks Molly for help. Molly becomes convinced that, contrary to the sheriff's opinion, Ed was not a suicide. Her hunch gains credibility when a construction worker at the bingo hall dies. Shortly before dying, each man had received seven pebbles. Zeb, however, is too old and feeble to be the killer. In effectively understated prose, Hager sets up the mystery while Molly grapples with her own personal problems: a long-distance relationship; the ghost of her mother; and a job threatened by proposed cuts in the government's grant to the Nation. Molly's mellow perseverance is a welcome respite from the angst-ridden approaches of many modern sleuths.

From Library Journal

In this third in the Molly Bearpaw series (e.g., The Rebird's Cry, LJ 4/1/94), the Cherokee investigator delves into a suicide that she can't quite buy and the apparently unrelated murder of a worker at the building site for the nation's nearly completed bingo hall. As Bearpaw struggles with memories of her own mother's suicide, possible loss of her job due to federal budget cuts, and serious commitment to Detective D.J. Kennedy, she works to unravel the murder(s). Interweaving Cherokee traditions, history, and lore with the stark Oklahoma setting, Hager's latest novel moves her up a notch in the mystery gallery. Worth investigating.

I am enjoying meeting Molly Bearpaw in this series. She is a realistic character who 'gets the job done' with her police work. I like the Indian reservation setting of present day time along with all of the other characters in Jean Hager's series. If you like reading Indian stories and the western states, this is a book for you. You won't be disappointed. I am hoping for many more Molly books from Ms. Hager.

Jean Hager is a good author. I like the story lines of mysteries in the Cherokee nation in Oklahoma. She mixes in some Cherokee beliefs which adds intrigue to the mysteries. She wrote four stories based on the Molly Bearpaw character. I am currently reading the fourth and final book, The Spirit Caller. Next on my list are her books based on Chief Mitchell Bushyhead.

Jean Hager wrote two Native American mystery series about the Cherokee culture in Oklahoma. Both are excellent and far too brief. One series features Officer Mitch Bushyhead and this one Tribal consultant Molly Bearpaw. The story holds you to the end.
