Publisher's Summary

A murdered man in a field. The sheriff needs Cash - a 20-something tough, smart Indian woman with special seeing powers.

Cash and Sheriff Wheaton make for a strange partnership. He pulled her from her mother's wrecked car when she was 3. He's kept an eye out for her ever since. It's a tough place to live - northern Minnesota along the Red River. Cash navigated through foster homes, and at 13 was working farms. She's tough as nails, 5 feet, 2 inches, blue jeans, blue jean jacket, smokes Marlboros, drinks Bud Longnecks. Makes her living driving truck. Playing pool on the side. 

Wheaton is big lawman type. Maybe Scandinavian stock, but darker skin than most. He wants her to take hold of her life. Get into junior college. So there they are, staring at the dead Indian lying in the field. Soon Cash was dreaming the dead man's cheap house on the Red Lake Reservation, mother and kids waiting. She has that kind of power. That's the place to start looking. There's a long and dangerous way to go to find the men who killed him. Plus there's Jim, the married white guy. And Long Braids, the Indian guy headed for Minneapolis to join the American Indian Movement.

loved it

In all my life as a Native who grew up around white people this was possibly the most relatable content I've had rhe pleasure of reading. Thank you, I will continue supporting Native women and people as we all have something to offer this world, I believe it now more than I did before listening.

Great book!

This was a great audible about Native Americans, stereotypes, and a good murder mystery. I am a black woman so I love reading and learning about different races and cultures. The descriptions given in this audible were very visual for me. The storyline was strong and believable. The main character was strong, smart, and but very sad because of her childhood. The narration fit perfectly! I hope this story continues with the same characters. I would love to see Cash go to school and join law enforcement with Winston.

Great story and narration

I liked the narration with good quality of the Ojibway language and actual sound of the language. The story was well written and kept my interest. I hope there is a sequel!

Really Enjoyed this book

I enjoyed this book...not so much on the mystery but mostly learning about the main character. Hoping now that Cash has been introduced, the next story will include more on mystery action. I think Siiri Scott did an excellent job of narrating book.

Narration was too distracting

I’m not sure if this was intentional, or if all of Siiri Scott’s narrations sound this way, but I hated it. It is as if Scott is speaking in a super quiet, barely voiced whisper. There is very little inflection or range of expression, just this super chill, half asleep, don’t have the energy to use my actual speaking voice, whisper. I had to really concentrate to make myself focus on the story, which I really enjoyed. I want to listen to the next book in the series, but I don’t think I can face more of Scott’s voice.

Interesting but lacked focus

Moving descriptions of psychology and consequences of the domination and systematic abuse of the indigenous peoples of the USA. Book would have been 20% shorter without extensive and detailed descriptions of the smoking, drinking, and laundering of clothing. Not a very complicated mystery, but as a person from North Dakota with numerous family connections to western Minnesota, I enjoyed the vicarious journey through familiar towns and locations, and having been in college in Fargo during the time portrayed in the novel it was a trip back in time. It will be interesting to see where and how far this series will run.
