Dance of the Bones: A J. P. Beaumont and Brandon Walker Novel by J. A. Jance

It was a murder many years ago, but it is still tied with current events.  People will do anything for money...

William Morrow and Edelweiss gave the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published September 8th, so you don't have long to wait.

I've been reading Ms. Jance's books for a long time.  She writes a good mystery, I like the Indian traditions she shares and she really makes her characters feel like long time friends.  Anything she writes is well worth reading.

This is really a tale of an avarice-filled female who is beautiful and knows it.  Her web of deceit has victims everywhere.  An older man, his partner, a boyfriend, a border patrolman and Indian children are all impacted by her.  Some deserved it, some were just in the way.

It takes several people to untangle this web of deceit and people are dying as time passes by.  The story is fast paced, there's action on almost every page, and the Indian history that is interwoven was fascinating.  Story telling is a tradition among Native Americans and this story is almost parallel to the tales being woven.  I felt bad for all those that died but I was happy about the ones who survived.  Now they just have to live with the awful experiences they've been through.
