"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

From Publishers Weekly
In Doss's highly entertaining 10th Charlie Moon mystery (after 2004's The Witch's Tongue), the rancher and Ute tribal investigator takes on his most unlovable client, orthodontist Manfred Wilhelm Blinkoe. The "mildly eccentric" Blinkoe insists that an assassin was aiming at him instead of the actual murder victim, a local attorney, shot at an upscale Granite Creek, Colo., restaurant. Tribal shaman Daisy Perika, Moon's crotchety aunt, becomes a target even as her otherworldly visions point her to more deaths connected with Charlie's client. When Blinkoe's boat is blown to smithereens, his beautiful blonde wife is naturally a suspect, but her husband's past and present life give plenty of other people motive for wanting him dead. Big money, big gambles and a surprise ending will keep readers turning the pages.

Charlie Moon, the Ute tribal investigator, returns in a particularly thorny case. A prosecutor is shot dead, evidently by a sniper, while dining at a restaurant. Who, police wonder, could possibly want a prosecuting attorney dead--other than plenty of ex-cons and defendants with revenge on their minds? But, seemingly out of nowhere, comes Manfred Blinkoe, an orthodontist who was also at the restaurant. He is absolutely convinced that he, not the dead attorney, was the intended victim. Police don't have time for this obvious loony, so they pass him on to the one man they know can handle him: Charlie Moon. The story kicks into high gear then, and something soon happens that persuades Charlie that the orthodontist may be right. Can Charlie and his shaman aunt find out who has his murderous eye on Dr. Blinkoe and why? Like Tony Hillerman, Doss likes to toss a little Native American spiritualism and a lot of local color into his mysteries. Fans of the series will be well pleased. David Pitt

Dr. Blinkoe ends up hiring Charlie Moon to investigate and things start to heat up. Charlie's Aunt Daisy manages to get in on the action and provides us with some very funny moments.
Doss mixes mystery, humor and the supernatural to come up with a story that is entertaining and fun to read.
If you haven't read any of his books before, I'd recommend reading his earlier ones, such as: The Shaman Sings, The Shaman Laughs, The Shaman's Bones and the Shaman's Game. The Night Visitor, Grandmother Spider, White Shell Woman, Dead Soul and The Witch's Tongue are later works and I enjoyed reading all of them.
