Thumps DreadfulWater has never liked surprises—even the goodones are annoying, he thinks. So it’s no shock that a string of seeminglyrandom occurrences is causing Thumps some real discomfort. First Noah Ridge, theRed Power Native activist, arrives in Thumps’ sleepy town of Chinook. Then thebody of a retired FBI agent turns up at the local Holiday Inn. In the backgroundhovers the ghostly presence of Lucy Kettle, second in charge of the Red Powermovement, a tough woman in a tough place until her disappearance years ago. Nowthe sheriff wants Thumps to trade in his photography gig for a temporary copbeat. And it won’t be over, Thumps soon realizes, until everyone’s dead—orfamous.

Hailed by critics from his first appearance, Cherokee ex-copThumps DreadfulWater is back in rumpled but razor-sharp form, doing his laconic,comic best to avoid trouble—and catch the bad guys. Bestselling writer ThomasKing (writing as Hartley GoodWeather) has penned a second entertainingDreadfulWater mystery, injected with dry wit and biting social commentary.
