The images and characters in Robert Brown's new novel 'The Sleeping Ute' will stay with you long after you close the book. The book follows a retired policeman who finds himself starting over on a remote Colorado Indian Reservation and dealing with people and their difficulties at a level never felt before. The backdrop for the tale is a mountain range that resembles an Indian warrior sleeping, 'The Sleeping Ute.' More than a work of fiction, the book explores metaphysical experiences and beliefs, through the candid voice of a first person narrator who is presented as the author. Woven into the story is an overriding desire for purpose, truth, and spiritual understanding. This reflective work is also written with a realistic law enforcement expertise born out of true life experiences. From the dramatic unfolding to a glimpse into what lies beyond this life, this one will hold your attention from beginning to end—you'll stay wide awake for, 'The Sleeping Ute.'
