Riassunto: [Read by Stefan Rudnicki]
From Kirk Mitchell comes a riveting suspense thriller in the tradition of Tony Hillerman and Joseph Wambaugh, featuring Bureau of Indian Affairs Criminal Investigator Emmett Quanah Parker and FBI Special Agent Anna Turnipseed, two Native American cops searching for justice between their heritage and the law. -- Though there are signs of foul play, BIA investigator Emmett Quanah Parker and FBI agent Anna Turnipseed aren't looking for a killer -- the remains dug out of the riverbank are 14,000 years old. But the bones have quickly provoked a controversy that threatens to erupt into violence: the skeleton is distinctly Caucasian, not Native American, shattering long-held tenets concerning who the first inhabitants of this continent were. -- While Emmett and Anna are distracted by the new romantic dimensions of their partnership, the illegal fossil hunter who discovered the skeleton is found disemboweled. Accusations of ritualized murder fly between the Indian and white communities, but the Warm Springs Indians have another theory: that the unburied bones of the Ancient One have been turned into a skep, a murderous spirit that haunts the darkness.
From the Back Cover:
"Tony Hillerman, watch your back.... Mitchell knows his turf and delivers a savory whodunit without remorse."
Praise for Kirk Mitchell's Spirit Sickness:
"A high-octane thriller in the Thomas Harris mold."
"Darker, grittier, and more satisfying than Hillerman's work ... Spirit Sickness reads fast, runs true and keeps you guessing."
-- Weekly Alibi, Albuquerque
"Intriguing ... Mitchell makes the most of Navajo mythology and the landscape of the Southwest."
-- Chicago Tribune
"A tough, hard-hitting story ... a winner."
-- I Love a Mystery
"Fans of Tony Hillerman and the Thurlos will want to read Spirit Sickness, a thriller that captures the identity of the Navajo Nation. Kirk Mitchell is a talented storyteller."
-- The Midwest Book Review
"If Mr. Mitchell was as good a policeman as he is a writer, there must not have been a criminal standing when he retired."
-- The Washington Times
"Plenty of strenuous treks through rugged terrain.... What a great guy to keep around."
-- The New York Times Book Review
"Nail-bitingly intense ... A breathless page-turner ... with memorable Native American myths and an outdoorsman's respect for the Southwest's brutal beauty."
-- Kirkus Reviews
"A taut thriller ... Parker and Turnipseed make a memorable literary pair."
-- Publishers Weekly
