Widely acclaimed by reviewers and praised by Toni Hillerman. The Legend of the Blue Owl blends art theft, fraud, archeological and ecological vandalism, and murder with the fascination with Indian rock art and mythology. A complex, multi-layered plot involves two different, yet realistic and likeable characters -- Jack Reed, a wounded and confused oceanologist and Cierra Rose Alcaraz, a half-Yaqui, half-Hispanic policewoman. The mystery unfolds amidst the enchanting background of the Arizona desert. Jack's ranch house and the critters his shares it with add a touch of humor rarely found in mysteries. By subtly weaving the Legend of HA-AK, the Witch who transforms into the Blue Owl, Parrish has created an intriguing mystery tales sprinkled with magic and romance.
