I highly recommend this book!
Mickey, an army scout, has been charged with discovering who is causing the unrest that has a good many of the young men ready to leave the reservation. Another Indian war may be imminent. It’s come to his ears that someone is called the Prophet, but no one seems to know who he is. Mickey is determined to find out. His success will depend on staying alive long enough to work through the layers of deception.
J.R. Lindermuth is a talented writer who has penned a western with enough history in it to entice non-fiction readers, while providing the excitement necessary to fiction readers. All Lindermuth’s historical novels provide an accurate look into the past while at the same time providing rousing entertainment.
Mickey Free is a half-breed Indian who’s saved Geronimo’s life twice. It appears that his life may be in jeopardy again. There are a number of deaths and Free has a theory, but can he follow through and prove it?
He’s also met a mysterious woman who seems to be somehow involved. As he begins to develop feelings for the woman, things seem to take an unexpected turn.
I was engrossed in this story and hated to see it end. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys both history and mystery, and who enjoys great character development.
Geronimo and his tribe have accepted settlement on a reservation patrolled by the Indian police, one of whom is the storyteller known as Mickey Free to the white men for whom and with whom he works. On the reservation someone is seeking to stir up trouble as he hides in the shadows of night. Those who do not join him are suspect and perhaps will fall victim to a follower. One whose death they seek is Geronimo because he represents the old ways.
It is obvious that the very talented author, John Lindermuth, has done the kind of research that puts the reader in the time and place of these lifelike characters. He describes the characters who will step off the page and invite you along on an adventure not found in modern westerns. Be sure to saddle up and be ready to ride.
Highly recommended as a read that will give plenty of satisfaction while the reader is led by Mickey Free on the search for a man who would kill anyone to gain his ends, including Mickey. Plenty of excitement, this tale will have you looking for reads by this author whose work is always written in easy to read language that will pull into another time.
The cover blurb adequately covers the plot highlights.
The reader is treated to elements of history, mystery, action, betrayal, romance, tragedy, and humor. Told through the eyes of half-breed protagonist Mickey Free, the descriptions of life on the San Carlos Apache Indian Reservation in the late 1870s and the relationships between the different tribes are richly detailed, fascinating, and accurate without ever slowing down the pace or getting in the way of the story. This is a testament to Lindermuth's skill as a writer and his passion for history.
GERONIMO MUST DIE is one of those books that transports you to a different time and place and makes you feel as if you are right there in the thick of exciting events surrounded by colorful characters.
A terrific reading experience. Highly recommended.
