Cry Dance
Author: Kirk Mitchell
If there's one thing Bureau of Indian Affairs Investigator Emmet Quanah Parker knows, it's that the dead don't always stay dead. With him he carries the ghosts of a partner killed in action, three failed marriages, and a long affair with the bottle. And now he's about to face the most dangerous case of his career--one that begins with a body that doesn't stay buried.

Brutally murdered and bizarrely mutilated, a woman's corpse is discovered on Havasupai Nation land. Parker is paired with FBI Special Agent Anna Turnipseed in a hastily assembled task force of two. The two share a mixed Native American ancestry...and little else. As they are pulled deeper into a complex case, Parker suspects they are being led--like Custer into Little Bighorn--into a killer's trap, with Anna the bait and Parker himself the quarry. At the heart of it are the dead, with history the most lethal weapon of all....

This is the first book in a series featuring Anna Turnipseed (Modoc Indian FBI agent) and Emmett Quanah Parker (Comanche BIA agent). Of course this series will draw comparisons to Tony Hillerman. Overall, I enjoyed this one as Parker and Turnipseed look into the brutal murder of a female BLM agent who was found on a remote Havasupai Indian Reservation with her face and teeth removed! This leads on to an inside look at Native American gaming and its affect on the Native American people on the reservations including a powerful influence by the Jamaican mafia. Parker ends up meeting an old nemesis who he had faced at Wounded Knee in South Dakota 10 years earlier and who had kidnapped Turnipseed while she was undercover at a Shoshone casino. Some very tense moments throughout the novel which I would recommend and I will be looking for the next in the series: Spirit Sickness.
