“An enjoyably twisty mystery with appealing characters and a vivid setting.” - Kirkus Reviews
a Naomi Manymules mystery
On the edge of the Navajo Nation, rookie paralegal Naomi Manymules pauses on a lakeside clifftop to enjoy a moonlit moment. She hears someone swimming in the darkness far below her, and a boat drifts out of the shadows. When she glimpses something that might be a naked butt shining in the moonlight, she decides to head for home. Only later does she discover that what she'd seen was the bare behind of a murdered sleaze. His passing upsets exactly no one, but, unfortunately, his wife can offer only a coyote for an alibi. The police aren't inclined to look much further for a suspect, so that leaves Naomi and her new boss, attorney Grant Carson, to do the looking. All they have to do is navigate the steady stream of likely culprits who show up in the office—surly teenagers, prominent locals, a good-looking loser worried about his dog, a mobster or two—and become targets themselves.
