Charlie Moon Mysteries (Volume 10)

James D. Doss

St. Martin's Paperbacks

James D. Doss's latest engrossing mystery marks the return of Charlie Moon, tribal investigator on Colorado's Ute reservation, whose sleuthing skills get some unlikely help from his Aunt Daisy Perika's shamanistic intuition.

TROUBLE SPREADS ITS WINGS
Dr. Manfred Blinkoe is one orthodontist with a very checkered past. So when a fellow diner at Cedar Creek's poshest restaurant drops dead from an unseen assailant's bullet, he can't help thinking that he was the intended target. Desperate for help, he turns to the one local who's up to the job: renowned tribal investigator Charlie Moon.

AND A KILLER COMES TO ROOST
Charlie already has his hands full with two cattle ranches to run, ornery Aunt Daisy's wanderings in the spirit world, and his sparring matches with the alluring FBI agent Lila Mae McTeague. Now he's got an eccentric client with more money than sense and too many enemies--at least one of whom is willing to resort to explosive measures to settle an old score.

"Highly entertaining...big money, big gambles, and a surprise ending
will keep readers turning the pages."
--Publishers Weekly
