Returning back to the Hotel LaBelle world, shifters and ghosts abound. This time, it is to help solve not only a current crime but a cold case. Jacob Graywolf is now the Chief of Tribal Police. He is pulled into an alarming homicide as it becomes apparent that Native American women are being hunted and murdered by a serial killer.
This story is interesting because as of late, I have been seeing more and more information through non mass media avenues regarding the treatment of Native Americans in both the States and Canada. I am surprised by the amount of bigotry towards them and lack of empathy and resources for them. They are in some ways a nation of their own surround by hostile territory. Ms. Buchbinder does a good job of highlighting this hidden plight and "swept under the rug" growing problem. What is horrendous is, if the numbers provided are accurate and growing, this will only cause more issues and tensions.
In this paranormal world, Ms. Buchbinder earns my respect with her proposing how in reality we can come together and help. She brings in government agencies, like the FBI through Special Agent Zena to bridge this communication gap. Partnering between the Indigenous tribe and their potential ally is a rocky road. The reader sees that there is much distrust from both sides and the desire to not interact is strong from both. Creating a task force that reviews patterns and comes up with ways to help bring the groups together and find their commonality is nicely slipped into this murder/mystery plot.
This paranormal suspense is well written and thought provoking. Recommended to paranormal readers who like suspense, character growth and learning about other cultures.
