The Red Power Murders: A DreadfulWater Mystery Kindle Edition
From the bestselling author of The Back of the Turtle and The Inconvenient Indian comes a wry and irreverent mystery
Thumps DreadfulWater has never liked surprises—even the good ones are annoying. So it’s no shock that a string of seemingly random occurrences is causing Thumps some real discomfort. First Noah Ridge, the Red Power Native activist, arrives in Thumps’ sleepy town of Chinook. Then the body of a retired FBI agent turns up at the local Holiday Inn. In the background hovers the ghostly presence of Lucy Kettle, second-in-charge of the Red Power movement, a tough woman in a tough place until her disappearance years ago. Now the sheriff wants Thumps to trade in his photography gig for a temporary cop beat. And it won’t be over, Thumps soon realizes, until everyone’s dead—or famous.
Hailed by critics in his first appearance, Cherokee ex-cop Thumps DreadfulWater is back in rumpled but razor-sharp form, doing his laconic, comic best to avoid trouble—and catch the bad guys. Bestselling writer Thomas King has penned a second entertaining DreadfulWater mystery, injected with the author’s characteristic dry wit and biting social commentary.
“Whimsical and wry, large-hearted and at times laugh out loud funny, but with an underlying gravitas and significance.” -- Quill & Quire --This text refers to the paperback edition.
From the Back Cover
Thumps DreadfulWater just wants the past to stay put. But when two Indian-rights activists arrive in the sleepy town of Chinook, the laconic photographer realizes he can't shed his cop skin — or his youthful involvement with the Red Power movement — for long.
First a retired FBI agent winds up murdered in the local Holiday Inn. Then someone roughs up Noah Ridge, the egotistical Red Power leader. Could it have anything to do with the disappearance of Lucy Kettle, Noah's beautiful second-in-command? Brimming with offbeat characters and deadpan humour, The Red Power Murders introduces a loveable Native American detective with a knack for getting into trouble.--This text refers to the audioCD edition.
