Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In Doss's highly entertaining 10th Charlie Moon mystery (after 2004's The Witch's Tongue), the rancher and Ute tribal investigator takes on his most unlovable client, orthodontist Manfred Wilhelm Blinkoe. The "mildly eccentric" Blinkoe insists that an assassin was aiming at him instead of the actual murder victim, a local attorney, shot at an upscale Granite Creek, Colo., restaurant. Tribal shaman Daisy Perika, Moon's crotchety aunt, becomes a target even as her otherworldly visions point her to more deaths connected with Charlie's client. When Blinkoe's boat is blown to smithereens, his beautiful blonde wife is naturally a suspect, but her husband's past and present life give plenty of other people motive for wanting him dead. Big money, big gambles and a surprise ending will keep readers turning the pages.

From Booklist

Charlie Moon, the Ute tribal investigator, returns in a particularly thorny case. A prosecutor is shot dead, evidently by a sniper, while dining at a restaurant. Who, police wonder, could possibly want a prosecuting attorney dead--other than plenty of ex-cons and defendants with revenge on their minds? But, seemingly out of nowhere, comes Manfred Blinkoe, an orthodontist who was also at the restaurant. He is absolutely convinced that he, not the dead attorney, was the intended victim. Police don't have time for this obvious loony, so they pass him on to the one man they know can handle him: Charlie Moon. The story kicks into high gear then, and something soon happens that persuades Charlie that the orthodontist may be right. Can Charlie and his shaman aunt find out who has his murderous eye on Dr. Blinkoe and why? Like Tony Hillerman, Doss likes to toss a little Native American spiritualism and a lot of local color into his mysteries. Fans of the series will be well pleased. David Pitt

Aunt Daisy, please take the big jug-head and shake him. Have long been a fan, but this one pushes the boundaries of the shamanistic. You have a strong streak of practical reality that Charlie lacks as he flounders as a rancher away from his spiritual home. It is time for Charlie to go back to the reservation and his roots.
A woman's death from a rifle bullet has repercussions. A dentist who insists the shot was meant for him hires Charlie, but is proven correct before Charlie can discover the killer. Aunt Daisy's home is destroyed, which has Charlie searching for clues in all the wrong places.
The sly humor of Doss makes you laugh out loud, much better than DEAD SOUL.
Nash Black, author of TRAVELERS and SINS OF THE FATHERS.

Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
The chief characters in the book are Charlie Moon, a Southern Ute Tribal Investigator, his Aunt Daisy who happens to be a Ute Shaman and Charlie's best friend, Police Chief Scott Parris. The tale begins when a woman is murdered in a restaurant in a small town in Colorado. There were only two diners at the restaurant and the survivor, an orthodontist by the name of Dr. Blinkoe is convinced the bullet was meant for him.

Dr. Blinkoe ends up hiring Charlie Moon to investigate and things start to heat up. Charlie's Aunt Daisy manages to get in on the action and provides us with some very funny moments.

Doss mixes mystery, humor and the supernatural to come up with a story that is entertaining and fun to read.

If you haven't read any of his books before, I'd recommend reading his earlier ones, such as: The Shaman Sings, The Shaman Laughs, The Shaman's Bones and the Shaman's Game. The Night Visitor, Grandmother Spider, White Shell Woman, Dead Soul and The Witch's Tongue are later works and I enjoyed reading all of them.

Format: Hardcover
This Charlie Moon mystery is by far the best of all. The blending of Ute culture, supernatural, and reality keeps the reader guessing to the very end. As usual Charlie Moon's aunt Daisy, adds a lot of fun and Native American spirituality to the story. I was sorry the novel ended and I am eagerly waiting for the next one. They just keep getting better and better.

5 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Dick in Carmel by the Sea on March 10, 2006
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
With Shadow Man this series is getting more and more into the supernatural. In this case, the supernatural is an integral part of the mystery but a part of which the protagonist never becomes aware. I have enjoyed this series from the begining, more so since the principal character switched from Scott Parris to Charlie Moon. His relationships with women would have seemed unusually straight laced in the 50s. Today they seem unbelievable for anyone not belonging to the most fundimental of religious sects. This tends to get in the way of the plot for me. None the less, I do recommend reading these books if you enjoy amusing mysterys.

This is well written, funny, and pulls you right into the story from the first page. The American Indian lore adds to the fullness of this book as do the 2 elderly lady characters. You have to love those 2!

This is the fourth book I've read by James D. Doss, and all of them have been really good mysteries with great plots, interesting characters and terrific dialog that has lots of humor. There always has been a way for Charlie's aunt (a Southern Ute shaman) to help solve the mystery with her visions. There is one chapter where Charlie is riding a wild bronco that was so funny that it brought tears. Since Doss wrote seventeen Charlie Moon novels before he died in 2012, I only have thirteen more to read!

Another great book by James D Doss. Who doesn't love his crotchety old aunt who "tells it like she sees it" with a twist of mean on the side, and who sees visions and communes with spirits. Without her Doss' books would be "just another copy story." Daisy makes the reading a joy and I find myself laughing. I appreciate Doss' books because, although they are about murders, he has written them with a lighthearted angle that spares the reader the true grimness of cruelty and crime. I will keep reading Doss until I've read them all. Looking forward to my next Amazon delivery of his.
