Penny Flame is the great, great grandmother of leading character Moneen(Mony) Murphy. Aided by her boyfriend Tommy, Mony is researching an alleged war crime committed by the US Army during the Indian Wars of the 19th century.
When she comes across 'The legend of Penny Flame,' Mony's quest becomes personal as she embarks on a search for the truth about what happened when Penny disappeared in the area of the eerily named Superstition Mountain. What follows is a truly epic tale that seamlessly switches the action between the Indian Wars and the current day. Something, or someone, doesn't want Mony to learn the truth, made even more lurid when she discovers the unsubstantiated memoir of notorious gunslinger, Pennington, who admits to being the killer of Penny's parents, and assisting in the slaughter of many white settlers, working together with Chief Death Star and his band of renegade Apache Indians.
Gradually, we learn how Penny Flame ended up living among the Puma Indians, becoming known as 'The White Witch.'
This is a superbly sweeping epic which kept me enthralled throughout. The truly explosive ending, when the forces of good, both Native American and the Christian Church, finally confront the evil that resides within Superstition Mountain, eventually reveals the truth behind what happened to Penny Flame, and explains what happened to the US Army detachment under the command of Captain Michael Marion, the source of the war crime allegations. Brilliant! Well done, Mr. Dizon, another literary triumph!
The struggle between good and evil meet the supernatural as grad student Moneen Murphy digs deep to learn the truth about her great-great grandmother, Penelope and her involvement with the Apache Wars. The book jumps well between present day and the 1800's, giving the reader an adventurous ride. Penny Flame is the best adventure novel I have read in a long, long time.
