When young rodeo star Pony Jones is found dead in the woods of Alabama, Jo Beth Dawson - a former detective grappling with alcoholism - feels inexplicably drawn to the case. Together, Jo Beth and Pony's grief-stricken father, Titus, search for clues - any clues - that could unmask the killer.

    " I liked the main character in this book. It was an easy read with an interesting plot. I really enjoyed the Native American theme and have already given the book to a friend who would like the rough attitude of a "female cop". I also liked the spirit Pony showed in a man's world. Gotta love a tough female! Good read! "

    " This book was beautifully written. There was a certain poetic element to the way the author used words. For those people who like pretty or thoughtful quotes for their blogs or anywhere else they post things, this book had something worth quoting in nearly every page. I like the style in which the story unfolded, you get to read everyone's POV, including the newly dead main character whose murder is a mystery until the end. Well, really you can guess who killed her early on but because the story wasn't just a murder mystery it doesn't matter if you can guess the outcome or not. I liked the main character & even though I thought the fact that she was such a mess would annoy me, I instead developed a soft spot for her. She's such a wounded mess, but that there's still a spark of strength in her kept her from being pathetic & had me rooting for her. I quite liked Pony putting her nose in everyone's business from the great beyond, it made for some humor in a story that would have otherwise been heartbreaking. "

    " This was a good book. It is about a young Native American female that has been murdered and her cousin who is trying to find the murderer. It talks about the spiritual world and how the victim speaks to her cousin. it is a book I would recommend. "
