Stone Butterfly - Charlie Moon, Bk 11 Author:James D. Doss Daisy Perika is no stranger to eerie dreams, but when she has a nightmare, lives could be at stake. Convinced that her visions of a wisp-thin girl with blood dripping from her hands are omens, the old woman calls on her nephew, Charlie Moon. — A part-time tribal investigator and full-time Colorado rancher, Moon is often skeptical of his aunt&rsqu... more »o;s mystical ways. And this time, much as he wants to believe her, Daisy just can’t get a clear vision of the girl’s face. Moon is ready to give up…until he gets a call about Sarah Frank.
An Ute-Papago orphan that fits Daisy’s vision, Sarah seems to be involved in a very real murder. But by the time Moon crosses the border to investigate, he’s too late: Not only has Sarah vanished with a one-of-a-kind family heirloom, but Moon isn’t the only ones on her trail…
Charlie Moon is a semi-retired detective who now owns a ranch and keeps a watchful eye on his Aunt Daisy. You see, Aunt Daisy sees and talks to spirits. She is warned that trouble is coming in the form of a girl , the daughter of Charlie's deceased best friend.
This novel was descriptive of the Ute culture and the Colorado countryside. Lakes, caves, a crazy horse and a dog who steals food, all have a part to play in this murder mystery. I wonder if you will be as surprised as I was after reading the last chapter. Very good book.
Phyllis K M. reviewed Stone Butterfly (Charlie Moon, Bk 11) on
I like Moon. I like the cross between the ancient and current world. I am a butterfly fan as in the butterfly is a beautiful illustration for new growth; starting over; flying over crawling. I always enjoy the elders in Moon's books. I enjoy Moon's patience and thoughtful consideration of his family friends working people. pkm :))))))
