The Shaman Sings (Charlie Moon, #1) The howling Coyote, messenger of the dwarf master pitukupf and dancing balls of fire, the bruja These are the omens that appear to the aged Ute shaman Daisy Perika and her shepherd friend Nahum Yaciiti Omens signaling the work of the Dark One among the matukach, the white people in this southwestern corner of Colorado The brutal, late night murder of graduate student Priscilla Song in her physics laboratory is Chief Scott Parris s first homicide case since arriving from Chicago three years earlier At first it looks open and shut, but loose ends quickly unravel to produce several possible suspects with equally pressing motives With the help of lovely journalist Anne Foster and Daisy Perika, Parris just may be able to catch the killer before he selects another victim First novelist James D Doss juxtaposes two extremes of southwestern life to create a dramatic and moving story that is much than simply a murder mystery The people in these disparate worlds mingle with, give to, and take from one another The reader is caught up in not only the discoveries of hard science, but what the old Shaman can see and effect when she sings.

  1. It seems like I compare books to food a lot lately so this one reminds me of casserole where it tastes pretty good but there s just some ingredient in it you just can t place and would have been fine without and maybe the whole thing is slightly underseasoned The Shaman Sings was James D Doss debut novel and I think that shows pretty clearly There are a ...

  2. This series is often compared to Tony Hillerman novels, though the writing styles of these two authors are markedly different The similarities are primarily in genre with mysteries involving Native American culture, Colorado settings, and tribal investigator protagonists Qualities appreciated by Hillerman fans won t necessarily translate to Doss novels, and vice versa My limited experience with Hillerman novels is based ...

  3. Flawed and disjointed Clearly, a first work by the author I hear they get better.

  4. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here This is not so much a detective story as the struggle between good and evil with a confusion of Ute mythology, white man s the bad , the Catholic church, the Inca s and Mayan s, dream quests, witches and perhaps schizophrenia backed by evil The overall plot hangs together although sometimes it feels like the mish mash of the supranatural is the get out of jail card for writing oneself into a box The characterization of some of the attitudes such as Mexican illegal, Julio Pacheco, relationsh This is not so much a detective story as the struggle...

  7. I had a hard time with this one Charlie Moon is hardly in it Most of the book has your typical stereotypes of lawmen, academics,etc. Some of the action feels contrived and hollow In one case a character is almost murdered but she survives and is walking around like nothing happened within hours of the near fatal wounding The best parts of the book were about the scientific discovery The attempt to meld the Native American mythology with a murder mystery didn t succeed like the works of Ton I had a hard time with this one Charlie Moon is hardl...

  9. Picked this up from the Local Authors shelf at a bookstore in Albuquerque on a whim to read while I was there for the weekend It was pretty good and a fast read, but I was a little bit disappointed at it being listed at the first Charlie Moon book, because he was ...
