Editorial Reviews

Review

"From the gripping prologue to the twist-upon-twist conclusion, Mark Sublette's PAINT BY NUMBERS will keep you up nights... unable to stop turning the page!" - - Sandi Ault, best-selling author of the WILD Mystery Series

"Mark Sublette's first novel is... marvelous. The white art dealer Charles Bloom lives in New Mexico with Indians. His impressive work is constantly taken away by those who go for nothing but money in New York. But Charles Bloom never stops in following great creativity... neither should we." - - Michael Blake, Dances with Wolves

"A deadly mystery about art and ambition, stretching from Navajoland to New York." - - Wolf Schneider, abqARTS

"This riveting art mystery, in the tradition of the late Tony Hillerman, successfully develops an intriguing tale that captures the essence of the creative spirit of the Navajo from the Toadlena region." - - Mark Winter, The Master Weavers and owner of the Historic Toadlena Trading Post

From the Author

A conversation with Mark Sublette, author of Hidden Canyon: A Charles Bloom Murder Mystery:
Q: There are quite a bit of medical details in this book, I'm assuming you drew on your medical background?
A: When I was in the Navy I worked as a doctor in a busy emergency room and managed numerous injuries of varying severity. Nothing like standing in pools of blood to help future writings for a good murder mystery. You see many bizarre ailments, which confirm that almost anything can be a cause of trauma, even a pencil.
Q: You have a whole section that was set around the Navy, I take it this is also from past experience.
A: Yes, I worked at the Weapons depot at Seal Beach, which was a fascinating place. It was the inspiration for Fallon Scriber's training. Occasionally I had to go to the brig at Long Beach to see a prisoner; this was a memorable place, one I would never want to end up in.
Q: Your forensic psychologist seems very real. Who was your inspiration or was it strictly fiction?
A: In college I took a class in forensic pathology, which I found fascinating and I considered going into this field as a profession. I liked the discipline as it required puzzle solving skills. I also have client, a forensic psychologist, who was very helpful explaining the fine details of a psychopathic personality. Maybe the character of Sam Hubbard represents an alter ego who took the path I was considering for my lifework, but he's fictional.
Q: Your book's story revolves around an early petroglyph site on the Navajo reservation, is this real, is there an image as you describe in the book like Fallon Man?
A: There is a remote site, which very few have visited that did give me the inspiration. I have included some photographs from this place, but like the books title, it will stay hidden. There was no Fallon Man petroglyph but there were some amazing and powerful images that made up the site and provided great fodder for writing.
Q: When can we expect the next Charles Bloom book and can you share what it might be about?
A: The fourth book is titled "Stone Men." It's about the turquoise trade and fake Indian jewelry. A real problem in the Native American art trade. It should be released in late 2014.
