I enjoyed this book. This is a well-written story. The characters both human and animal are likable and intelligent which enhances the story. The pace of the mystery moves is a great pace allowing for well-placed red herrings to add more suspense and suspects to the storyline. The Native American aspect of the story is interesting making the book more original than other books in this genre I’ve read.
I listened to the audio version of this book. The narrator Larry Gorman was a great addition to an already great book. He did a wonderful job bringing the characters and story to life.
