Listener Opinions

    " An intriguing "ride" through the San de Cristo Mountains in search of answers and a killer. This is my first exposure to Ms. Ault's work and look forward to exploring further. I was hooked from the prologue/intro. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindig | 1/6/2013

    " Lovely writing about nature in northern New Mexico, a state I like a lot. The subject matter, Los Penitentes, is absorbing and gruesome at the same time. My only quibble is that a woman with a name like Jamaica Wild shouldn't be a blond. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rebecca Williamson | 12/7/2012

    " The opening is compelling and the southwestern setting is great. The theme of penance is interesting, but overall the plot and characters were too slim to work for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly | 11/3/2012

    " I thought I had read one of thebooks in this seriesand did. Not like it. I must have been crazy! This was verygood and I will read more asap. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sheila | 4/19/2012

    " The story grabbed me from the beginning and did not let go. What a wild ride! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Timna | 1/9/2012

    " eh - it was OK... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Frank | 4/20/2011

    " Good but is set earlier in the time sequence of the primary character so if you have read previous books in the sequence, this is fill in for the earlier references. I didn't like it as much as Wild Inferno but like the other novels, the characters and setting are well laid out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shomeret | 4/19/2011

    " This is a poignant story line centering on the controversial Penitente order. Jamaica Wild also deals with her past. There's a lovely poem about Jamaica that I particularly liked. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melise Gerber | 1/31/2011

    " This was an enjoyable book--interesting story, fast read. It jumped from a 3 to a 4 because I love the setting (Northern New Mexico around Taos) so much. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathleen | 8/7/2010

    " This book launched one of my favorite series. Ault has created an engaging character in Jamaica Wild, who is most comfortable doing her job in the backcountry. I love the sense of place that shines through, as well as glimpses of different cultural groups in the southwest. Highly recommended! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy | 6/17/2010

    " I loved the setting for the book. Although the writing was uneven, I enjoyed the story enough that I'll read the second book in the series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Margaret | 10/4/2009

    " This months mystery book selection.

    I debated over giving it 2 or 3 stars. I found the book a little choppy. I enjoyed the relationship between the main character and her wolf but was unsure about the visions. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 6/30/2009

    " Not a bad book, but the underlying mystery was not well-developed. It seemed she wanted to write more about the Pueblo customs instead of the mystery itself. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ellie | 3/17/2009

    " I really loved this mystery even though the sleuth is someone very different from me. I liked her and the story rang true. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sue | 12/13/2008

    " A new author's first book. I think her subject line moved slowly, dragged at times. Maybe her second book will be more polished but I won't run out to purchase it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindy | 11/26/2008

    " Great mystery story....someone else here recommended it and I'm glad! The author describes the landscape and native culture in a way that makes you feel like you're there. Kept me interested and wondering til the end! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jilll | 11/24/2008

    " I really enjoyed this book. If you like reading Native American fiction, this is a good pick with adventure, mystery and action...a strong heroine whose best friend is a wolf. "
