About 1/3 thru I started skimming. The Indian lore at the beginning of each chapter started as interesting....ended up as filler. This is the first Jance book I've been disappointed in. The characters aren't drawn......you're scattered every which way with lore and two other different stories. Did not care for it at all.
A SUPER DISSAPOINTMENT. Jance used to write simple, realistic and interesting stories. This book has more characters and a more complex, twisting plot than WAR AND PEACE. I guess it's an attempt at sophistication, but it is instead totally boring. I skipped half of it.
J.A. Jance's latest novel bring protagonists from two of her series, Brandon Walker in Arizona and J. Beaumont in Seattle. Although, not quite as adept as Tony Hillerman in bringing native culture and stories into her mysteries, she does an admirable job in having medical doctor, Indian shaman, Lani, November between the two cultures. People who have not read Jance's former mysteries, may need more than the background given in the story. It was an enjoyable read.
Not up to her usual standards. I gave up reading it.
Waited so long for this book and I was so disappointed. Never finished it.
I have been a J.P. Beaumont fan since he first hit the pages of a novel. This was so disappointing. It would have been better to not have mentioned that he was even in this novel as I kept waiting for him to have more of a role.
This book is just not up to J.A. Jance's previous books. Sorry
I have several problems with this book. First, not enough J.P. Beaumont. Second, too much tedious native translation. Finally, as an MS patient of 20 years I know that, MS has NOT been determined to be hereditary. Do your homework Ms. Jance. I have been reading your books since they first appeared here, in Seattle. This one is disappointing.
