With his Southwestern series, bestselling author James D. Doss and his dryly humorous, no-nonsense Native American sleuth, Charlie Moon, have brought law and what’s going to have to pass for order to Charlie’s Columbine Ranch and the nearby Ute reservation.Now the seven-foot rancher and part-time tribal investigator wants to carve out a little more space for himself alongside FBI Special Agent Lila Mae McTeague. That’s right: Charlie has it in his head that he’s going to get hitched. That is, unless Charlie’s irascible aunt, her sixteen-year-old niece, and their visions of a dead woman—her throat slit from ear to ear—have anything to say about it.With a bit of romance and full measure of murder, Snake Dreams, the thirteenth in James D. Doss’s widely loved Charlie Moon series, is a haunting tale best told under a full moon and beside a crackling fire.

“Doss does for the Utes what Tony Hillerman has done for the Navajo.”---The Denver Post“Doss’s trademark humor keeps Charlie and Scott wisecracking as the plot spins smartly along to an unpredictable ending. . . . Charlie Moon mysteries still charm us with Western voices and ways.”---Rocky Mountain News on Three Sisters“James D. Doss’s novels . . . feel as if the author is sitting around a campfire, spinning a tall tale that engulfs a circle of listeners. . . . His chatty, down-home style shines.”---Florida Sun-Sentinel on Three Sisters“A belly-laugh primer that breaks every rule in the mystery genre, something for which Doss’s fans should be eternally grateful.”---Kirkus Reviews (starred review) on Three Sisters“More twists and turns than the road to Charlie’s acerbic Aunt Daisy’s . . . This latest Colorado mystery leaves no doubt that Doss has carved out his own niche.”---Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Three Sisters“Doss has reproduced the land of the southern--Colorado Utes with vivid affection.”---The Dallas Morning News
