This was an excellent suspense novel. It was like watching a TV show, CSI comes to mind. The detective work is serious not cheesy with the police actually being competent and not bumbling characters. Mac and Dana make a good team and the secondary characters add more dimension to the story as well. The forensics team in this series is awesome. I've learned quite a bit from reading the descriptions of what the medical examiners discover. I will admit there are some grisly images but it keeps in with reality. Especially creepy was the scene where they dug up the body in the flowerbed. I honestly had no clue who the culprit really was and was quite shocked by the result. I had to flip back and catch up on clues. The writing is top notch with suspense, humor, and realism all blended together. I did like how Mac's relationships finally came to a agreement. Throughout the whole series you never knew who he was going to end up with. I also appreciated the explanations about Native American religions and ways of life. I'm really sad that the series is over. I love Patricia Rushford's novels and this series is definitely a favorite. I think it'd be really cool to have her four detectives get together in a book - Jennie McGrady, Helen Bradley, Mac, and Angel Delaney. She is one of the best mystery authors out there.
