Spirit Sickness Audiobook Written By Kirk Mitchell. In the tradition of Tony Hillerman and Joseph Wambaugh comes this suspense thriller reuniting Bureau of Indian Affairs Criminal Investigator Emmett Quanah Parker and FBI Special Agent Anna Turnipseed, two Native American cops torn between their heritage and the law. A fire-gutted police cruiser found in a remote part of the Navajo reservation bears witness to a horrific crime. Inside are the bodies of a tribal patrolman and his wife.

This satisfying novel is mature on several levels: plot development, character development, sophistication and depravity of the villians' human motives (as well as those of some good guys, too). This is a good page-turner with fresh twists on the "torn between two worlds" modern Indian/cop conflict.

In the tradition of Tony Hillerman and Joseph Wambaugh comes this suspense thriller reuniting Bureau of Indian Affairs Criminal Investigator Emmett Quanah Parker and FBI Special Agent Anna Turnipseed, two Native American cops torn between their heritage and the law.A fire-gutted police cruiser found in a remote part of the Navajo reservation bears witness to a horrific crime: inside are the bodies of a tribal patrolman and his wife. As BIA Investigator Emmett Parker and FBI Special Agent Anna Turnipseed know, a cop's murder is never simple, raising countless questions and suspicions. When another murder is discovered, the case explodes into an otherworldly realm. Both Parker, a Comanche, and Turnipseed, a Modoc, are well acquainted with the eerie shadowland between native myth and modern homicide investigation. Now they will have to touch minds with a murderer who has woven personal madness with Navajo myth to create his own reality -- and with it the need to kill and kill again.

Love all the Parker/Turnipseed mysteries and the Parker mysteries. The plots are great. They don't drag. However, I believe it is not necessary to know all of agent Turnipseed''s weaknesses. The police work is great as is the weaving between modern culture and traditional culture. While I understand the necessity to have the Turnipseed past issues act as a break on a physical relationship between the two agents I fail to believe it was the only choice. At times the relationship replaces the primary plot in importance. This is only true in the first book. I was looking for more books :-( that's how we discover other authers in the genra. Tony Hillerman doesn't need to move over yet and won't because Ann will make Chee's wife too much of a nitwit leaving that long series intact.

*Spirit Sickness* is the only book I would recommend to someone who said to me, "I've read all the Leaphorn/Chee books; now what? Isn't there anything else like them?" In this genre that combines mystery fiction with American Indian themes, Thomas Perry, with his superior writing skills and (sadly, now retired) Seneca heroine, Jane Whitefield, and Kirk Mitchell, with his rural western settings and duo of American Indian cops, are the top contenders for Hillerman's crown when the master decides to retire. (And yes, I know about Doss, the Thurlos, Stablenow, etc. Different league.)
*Spirit Sickness* is a PG-13 Hillerman novel with a touch of Ellroy/Harris nastiness spicing things up. The crimes are more graphic than anything Hillerman would subject us to, and there is a bit of graphic sex as well. The villain is a violent psychopath--a type that only appears, and briefly, in one of the Chee/Leaphorn books. But the action is fast and furious, the conflict and attraction between the two cops exciting and engaging, and overall this is a solid, satisfying read.
For a complete discussion of the "Indian mystery" genre, check my web site.

I don't know why everyone has to compare him to Hillerman. Both are very good but very different. The only similarities are the location but it stops there. Mitchell's move a lot faster and spend a lot less time describing the scenery. They are a lot more thrilling while Hillerman's are slower pace and more relaxing. It all depends on what you are in the mood for. Both writers are great and if you like this area of the country you will enjoy both. As to the other guys criticism about Parker and Turnipseed crawling under the mobile home---give us a break--this is FICTION! It fits in with the story quite well!
