Mercy Gunderson is a straight shooter with a hard edge. On medical leave from the Army, she returns home to South Dakota, which isn't much safer for her than Iraq. Arriving just after the death of her father, it is up to Mercy to decide what to do with the family ranch. Trying to deal with her irresponsible sister and nephew, while silently coping with her own guilt, Mercy is suddenly pulled into the local community when the body of a Native American boy is found on her land. But nobody seems to be doing anything about it, especially not the local law enforcement.

When tragedy strikes again, Mercy is ready to throw all her energy into her own investigation, and she's out for revenge. As she digs up the truth behind the shocking crimes, Mercy uncovers dark and dangerous secrets and must race to stop a killer before everything she's fought for is destroyed forever.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth | 2/12/2014

    " This book is very well named. The protagonist, Mercy, does not have any mercy for herself and several other people in her life don't cut her any slack either when actually she deserves some. She's a wounded veteran of the Iraq war home for the first time in years. She missed her father's funeral because she was in a hospital but her family and friends know none of this. A teenage boy is found dead and the circumstances are suspicious. He's found on a remote part of Mercy's family's land. Then other ugly things happen near Mercy's ranch. Her sister is pregnant for the second time and this she says who the father is but he seems a bit shady. Meanwhile her first son is getting into fights. I would give this series a second chance but if its as mercilessly tough on its characters the second time around, I will call it quits. "

    " Didn't hold my interest. Made it through about a third of the book, then skipped ahead to the last few pages just to satisfy my mild curiosity about how it turned out. No big surprises. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Susan Elrod | 1/28/2014

    " Parts of this were just ridiculously predictable, so much so that if the protagonist herself had read a mystery novel at any point in her life, she should immediately have known who did it. I was actually rolling my eyes several times at the obviousness. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charlene | 1/26/2014

    " I seriously enjoyed this book. Mercy has a lot in common with Julie Collins, but she's definitely an individual. It's interesting to see how those differences played out in the plot, the choices she made, the actions she took. Excellent writing. As always, Armstrong brings the modern west vividly to life. Really looking forward to the next book in this series. "

    " I have enjoyed this writer & this series! "

    " I previously read this book... Don't remember original dates read. Check Kindle download date if necessary. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 10/30/2013

    " this was a pretty good book, but a definite departure from this authors usual, hence the name change (Lori Armstrong AKA Lorelei James). The mystery has a lot of build up and then a couple of twists and turns are thrown in. It's worth reading and I'll be starting the second book in the series today. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brian | 6/28/2013

    " Read it in one (long) sitting, so I suppose that says enough about it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve | 6/17/2013

    " Nice read. Interesting story and it is good to see a tough woman in a action story but also with some feeling "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heidi R. | 5/13/2013

    " Another great series by Lori Armstrong. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandi Morris | 4/6/2013

    " Started slow but got better as I continued reading. Ending fooled me which is always a good thing when reading a mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megan | 8/26/2012

    " Even though I had this figured out by the end, it was still a great book. I smiled with the Wild Turkey references. She knows what she likes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Phil Mullen | 7/10/2012

    " I liked Mercy Gunderson as a character. I also liked the convolutions of the plot, the S. Dakota setting, & the Indian characters & their world. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela | 5/31/2012

    " A good and fair reflection of rez life from the outside. "

    " Even though I had this figured out by the end, it was still a great book. I smiled with the Wild Turkey references. She knows what she likes. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 james | 5/3/2011

    " Not bad for the first in what I hope will be a long series. It features a female Army Ranger who returns to her home in South Dakota, and does a bit of investigating. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ann | 3/16/2011

    " The heroine was a little too rough and tough for my enjoyment. Still I enjoyed reading a story set in a locale with which I am familiar. "

    " Excellent!! Love the main character, she's got wit, charm and a don't F with me attitude. Story never dulls and is a true page turner. Read it in one day!! "
