Charlie Moon is no stranger to the mysterious ways of the spirit world. But why is prize livestock being ritualistically butchered in the Canyon of the Spirit? That's what Granite Creek's chief of police Scott Parish wants to find out…before human blood begins to spill.
Enter Moon's aunt and aging Ute shaman Daisy Perika. For only she who communes with the ancient spirits can truly comprehend the events that have happened upon Native American lands—and the even greater evil that is yet to be unleashed…
In The Shaman Laughs, James D. Doss delivers another fascinating Charlie Moon mystery.
According to PW's starred review, Doss's second Charlie Moon mystery (set on an Ute Indian reservation) "combines... the sacred and profane, with grace and suspense."
