Coffin Man

When a young lady vanishes, Colorado rancher and Ute tribal investigator Charlie Moon is the man to call—whether it’s mystery, mysticism, or murder…

After a heavy storm, Charlie receives a panicked call from Wanda Naranjo. Not only is her sink leaking, but her daughter Betty is sixteen and pregnant—and missing. Where’d she go? No one knows. Who’s the father? Anybody’s guess. Any leads? Just the local bad-boy carpenter who’s raising suspicion faster than he can build a pine box…

As if that wasn’t enough of a bad omen, Charlie’s Aunt Daisy seems to have lost her connection to the spirit world, a mysterious stranger has shown up at Charlie’s ranch, and someone’s found a dead body in the cemetery. A fresh dead body. Now Charlie’s got to hunker down and dig up some evidence—before a killer puts the final nail in his coffin…

Praise for Coffin Man

PRAISE FOR JAMES D. DOSS

and his Charlie Moon mysteries

COFFIN MAN

“Charlie Moon looks into several puzzles that confound…in Doss’s amusing 16th adventure featuring the Ute Indian part-time deputy and full-time rancher. Series fans will enjoy spending time with old friends.”—Publishers Weekly

A DEAD MAN’S TALE

“Top-flight work from Doss…a droll fandango.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Funny, even slapstick in places…memorable characters add zest.”—Booklist

THE WIDOW’S REVENGE

“Insanely good.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“It’s Moon who stands tallest  in The Widow’s Revenge…a nonstop read [in] this solid series.”

Booklist

“Successfully evokes the mysticism of traditional Native American storytelling.”—Publishers Weekly

SNAKE DREAMS

“Outstanding….The narrator clearly is having fun as he unveils his tale, liberally laced with Native American lore, character idiosyncrasies, comedic asides, and a plot that weaves and twists like a highway in the Rockies.”—Library Journal (starred review) 

Snake Dreams is the thirteenth novel in this series, and since it’s a very good one—funny, smart, and totally different—it’s a great place for readers to discover Moon.”—Toronto Globe and Mail
