Summary
When a young woman linked to a list of missing Fire-Sky tribal members commits suicide, Pueblo Police Sergeant Nicky Matthews is assigned to the case. As the investigation unfolds, she uncovers a threat that strikes at the very heart of what it means to be a Fire-Sky Native: victims chosen and murdered because of their genetic makeup. But these deaths are not just about a life taken. In a vengeful twist, the killer ensures the spirits of those targeted will wander forever, lost to their family, their People, and their ancestors. When those closest to Nicky are put in jeopardy, she must be willing to sacrifice everything--her career, her life, even her soul--to save the people she is sworn to protect.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Following her instincts and a series of haunting mystical visions, Sergeant Nicky Matthews of the Tsiba'ashi D'yini (Fire-Sky Pueblo) reservation police launches an off-the-books investigation into the death of Sandra Deering, who was hit by a train after her family reported her missing. Nicky took the missing-persons report from Sandra's desperate family and isn't buying her colleagues' insistence that Sandra committed suicide. Amid the tribe's annual casino-profits disbursements, Nicky's investigation opens a hornet's nest of missing tribe members and possible serial murder, complicated by the tribal leadership's determination to maintain cultural purity as modern America encroaches. Despite her carefully maintained emotional walls, Nicky is shaken when a close friend becomes a suspect, and she begins to suspect that the romantic tension developing with conservation officer Franco Martinez is a ploy to sabotage her investigation. Winner of the Tony Hillerman Prize, Potenza's polished, page-turning debut shares Hillerman's thoughtful exploration of Native identity, story-driving cultural tension, and evocative setting. Readers will crave another story in Nicky Matthews' spunky, driven voice.--Christine Tran Copyright 2018 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Potenza's outstanding debut and series launch is sure to please fans of mysteries that respectfully depict Native American culture and beliefs. Sgt. Monique "Nicky" Matthews works for the Fire-Sky Pueblo police on New Mexico's Tsiba'ashi D'yini reservation. When a missing person case is resolved as a suicide, the deceased's relatives and Nicky's own mysterious visions lead her to suspect murder. Despite resistance from her hostile captain, Nicky and her intriguing-but possibly untrustworthy-new colleague, Frank Martin, investigate a connection to a pair of unsolved killings from two years earlier. Their search puts them into conflict with a powerful casino magnate and brings an old flame back into Nicky's life with unpredictable consequences. Nicky, a strong, nuanced lead, inhabits a world populated by well-developed supporting characters. Another plus is Potenza's vivid portrayal of the desert landscape. Readers will look forward to seeing a lot more of Nicky and her friends. (Dec.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
