Another hit for Mitchell,
This review is from: Dance of the Thunder Dogs (An Emmett Parker Mystery) (Mass Market Paperback)
Emmett Parker is a Comanche BIA investigator who normally works out of the Arizona office. But as a Special and unique investigator, Emmett is called upon to solve all kinds of crimes.
However, his last adventure cause him physical harm so he has come home to Okalahoma to recuperate and heal, and possibly decide if he still wants to be in this line of work.
Before we can even determine if Emmett is settling into his mother's home for some much needed R&R, he is accused of killing his best friend, being involved in an elaborate scheme to skim money from the trust funds of the Native Americans, and is being hunted by an adversary who has known him all his life. Michael Mangas is an FBI agent out to get Emmett, maybe, just because. He is not sure Emmett is guilty, but it sure is looking that way. Only with cunning and ingenuity and a little help from his friends can Emmett avoid getting killed or captured.
This is a fast-pace book with lots of action and twists. We are not sure who are the bad guys, and who are the good guys. All we know for certain is that Emmett is not guilty and someone else is. Proving it is another kettle of fish altogether.
When an investigator is on the wrong side of the law, he has to be very careful and suspect everyone, including the ones who claim to be helping him.
The ending is true Mitchell, lots of action and fireworks to conclude the storyline, but also, enough hints to leave us waiting for the next installment of Emmett Parker and his exciting life.
