Grandmother Spider, by James Doss
Ute tribal cop Charlie Moon struggles with local superstitions and the "curse" of a Ute shaman as he digs for a rational reason for the disappearance of two men, with the help of his old friend, Police Chief Scott Parris.
The incomparable mysteries of James D. Doss, featuring the amiable, outsized Ute tribal policeman Charlie Moon and his irascible shaman aunt Daisy Perika, are brilliantly conceived, richly atmospheric puzzles generously sprinkled with humor and Native American mysticism, and teeming with characters as colorful and memorable as any found in contemporary fiction. The enchantment is more potent than ever before in this spellbinding tale of lethal human depravity and a legendary nightmare come alive.
