Editorial Reviews

Review

''Murder in Black and White' is a riveting old-school style mystery that is as fun as it is entertaining.' --Midwest Book Review

THE DEVIL'S GAME
'An exciting book set in the context of a time of struggle on the semi-civilized frontier.' --Local Kansas newspaper

About the Author

Loretta Jackson and Vickie Britton, sisters and coauthors, are drawn to out-of-the-way places, old mining towns, and vast rangelands where the legends and history of the past live on. Inspired by the rugged mountains of Wyoming and Colorado, they find the lonely, high-country region a perfect setting for their novels.
Both writers live in Kansas; Loretta in Junction City, Vickie in Hutchinson. 'Whispers of the Stones' is their eighth book for AVALON. Others include their mysteries 'Murder in Black and White,' 'Arctic Legacy,' 'Path of the Jaguar,' and 'Nightmare in Morocco.'

Customer Reviews

Very readable prose makes for good entertainment.

Overall, it was a good, quick, and light read that kept me interested until the end, even though I figured out the culprit halfway through.
Alex
Characters names are dumb (as are the characters themselves), writing is stilted, plot line thin.

I enjoyed this book from start to finish. The deeply satisfying, well-plotted mystery has well-drawn characters, and the authors' research of Wyoming's cave carvings and legends of the Little People make WHISPERS OF THE STONES a truly intriguing read. I highly recommend the High Country series and adventures of Sheriff Jeff McQuede to anyone who loves a good mystery.

This story intertwines a mystery with Wyoming history and Native American mythology. That is what I love best about this story. The authors put a lot of thought into the characters plot and setting. It was well written and enjoyable to read.

Interesting and well written. The story line has enlightened a new interest for me, American Indian lore and studies. This author sure can make words flow. Smooth ! Don't pass this one up

I picked this book up because I'm a petroglyph fan and live in the mountain West.

I didn't find this book terribly compelling. I could put it down and not go back for a couple of days. I think it would be a fine beach or airplane read though.

Native beliefs and paleontology got a bit garbled and the petroglyph/pictograph descriptions were not clear enough for me to visualize them or put them into context with the panels I've seen. The plot device of the "undiscovered" part of the cave was pretty accurate about the way white scientists view Native American sites. The site is undiscovered because none of them knew about it. The fact Native people have known for generations never enters their arrogant heads.

I knew who dunnit 1/3 of the way in, although there were so many side plots I became a little annoyed. The Sheriff is no Walt Longmire. Navel gazing and mooning over his love life side tracks him from the case and turns him into a co-dependent idiot. A guy that old should have his act together a little better I think.

I doubt I'll read any other offerings of this author. My reaction to this book was lukewarm.

If all the history is real this is a great story. I will probably "google" some of the things presented to check the reality and get more background.
