I like historical fiction but rarely find really good examples. This is one. Just a great book: entertaining, exciting, learned a lot, well-constructed, characters you are sure go on to have other adventures somewhere, somehow, genuinely evil villains, and a story that says a lot (indirectly) about the dark and light sides of American life. Good author website, too. Made this a book club choice; had one of our best discussions ever.

I liked this better than Wolf Hall and Angle of Repose. An elegant, readable page-turner, based on an actual 1887 crime. My greatest compliment for a book is that I wish I had known the characters, and that is certainly true for this multicultural novel, set in the West and yet not at all a conventional Western, but a tale of lost love, justice, family, and one man against the town.

The tragic story of the Chinese goldminers provides great histroical data for this work of fiction. However, it was difficult to read. The point of view kept shifting from one character to the next without a comfortable segue. At Often I wasn't sure who's POV we were reading. However, by half way through, I had to know the outcomes. And the story brought to light our cultures continuing use of scapegoats.

A fast-moving story, based on the 1887 real-life massacre of over 30 Chinese gold miners on Idaho's Snake River. The appealing characters struggle with the big issues of their time (and ours): prejudice, injustice, duty vs. personal happiness, the corrupting power of big money & the many meanings of family. Yes, Deep Creek is an intelligent thriller. But it is also a historical novel that really convinces. I was sorry to leave its world. I still want to be heading upriver with Joe Vincent, Grace Sundown and Lee Loi, tracking down some of the worst villains ever, against tough odds, in gorgeous, scary country. A page-turner that stays with you, built around an American tragedy that deserves to be remembered.
