An old Hopi medicine man is brutally murdered during a pilgrimage to a secret shrine near the Grand Canyon. The gruesome murder is investigated by Jenny Hatch, the U.S. Forest Service archaeologist, and all of the clues to the mystery seem to lead back to ancient Hopi legends. The suspects include: a belligerent uranium mine owner; a renegade Indian leader of the Ghost Shirters; the flamboyant spiritual leader of the Crystal Heads; a rebel Hopi politician running for Tribal Chairman; the powerful Kachina Masaw; and even the Hopi traditionalist who was beheaded. Throw in a long lost map, and you have all the ingredients for the wondrous return of Masaw.
"Kachina Roulette" is the second book in the Jenny Hatch mystery series, following on the hells of the very popular "Anasazi Strip". It is a fascinating tale of greed, environmental justice, lost legends, and playing with fire as powerful forces come together at the Black Butte Mine, each trying to pull the Kachina trigger without getting killed.
