Already reeling from the loss, Sharon finds among her father's papers a secret that shatters the ground under her feet. Dropping everything, ignoring the frantic attempts of her mother to stop her, Sharon turns her detective skills on her family's past. They focus her attention on the Shoshone reservation of her great-grandmother in Fort Hall, Montana. Obsessed but still competent, Sharon tracks the subjects of a photograph taken during what looks to be an idyllic summer before her own birth.

She meets residents and relatives living in Fort Hall, a rich father and son from California, a bravely dying tribe at Spirit Lake, and the ghosts of a ghost town called Cinder Cone. Indifferent to trouble, she checks out a conflict between the Spirit Lake tribe and a real estate developer, and finds it may be her death. Revealing decisions are made at the point of a gun.

Author Marcia Muller sees each of her characters with the discernment of love. Most important among them is Sharon's significant other, Hy Ripinsky, who is so observant, supportive, and understanding that every interaction between the two is a pleasure to read. Elwood Farmer, who gives her the picture, is pleasantly independent and eccentric and makes one hope to meet him again. Will Camphouse, not-so-accidentally met in a bar, has the makings of an interesting and challenging friend. The real estate developer, Austin DeCarlo, is given a well rounded development as a human being, not colored by his professional stance.

By contrast, his father Joseph DeCarlo is the least successful character in the book: most of his dimension is created by variations in his level of hostility. Most tantalizing is attorney Saskia Blackhawk, whom we have no opportunity to see at her best because she has just been the victim of a hit and run. Her children, sister and brother Robin and Darcy Blackhawk, have an enjoyably intriguing relationship with Sharon McCone.

I will hope for a chance to get to know the Blackhawk family better in a later book. Sharon's brothers and sisters are simply her brothers and sisters, and she doesn't look at them any more than we usually look at our own. She just loves them and leans on them. Her relationships with each of her parents are unique and valuable, each in its own way. We see extremes of family from the multiple network reaching beyond Fort Hall Reservation to the dominance of Joseph DeCarlo over Aaron.

Whether tender or nerve-wracking, the family moments that Muller lets us see include something that each of us will recognize from our own lives. This book is blessedly free of politics. Along the way Muller handles subjects that have a definite politically correct position, but she looks at them from a purely human viewpoint.

About This Item

There are no diatribes about the death of Native American culture, no polemics about developing wilderness areas. Instead there are musing chats with Modoc tribe councilmen about plans for their city, and an encounter with a troublemaker for sale to the highest bidder. The sensible Will Camphouse comments that he prefers to say he's an Indian because it's shorter than Native American. Muller shows us people, not causes.

I was thrown off-kilter when Saskia was hit by a car. That was just tossed in there as a gateway to add in more places Sharon could go to. The Jimmy D scandal felt off, and everything after him was rushed. Sharon went to so many places in so little time, it got confusing and none of the settings past the reserve Fenella visited were vivid.

Important Sharon McCone mystery in that Sharon discovers her real family, but overall, a poorly written story in that it would have been better as a tight novella or perhaps a longer, more fleshed out novel.

It's hard for a practiced genre author to mess up the writing, but easier to mess up if you are playing too many writer tricks with the writing.

Muller played up atmosphere over substance, was a little lazy in plotting and characterization relying on exposition by incredibly confessional characters , but did her homework on the historical facts regarding how the USA handled the forcing of American Natives onto Reservations and then starved them of resources, including food.

Sadly, despite the importance of the story to learning about the fictionalized history of McCone, this book is not that good, a two and a half star rating in my opinion.

I read this before, but forgot it almost completely remembered one incident on page In this mystery, Sharon McCone discovers that she is adopted, and the mystery takes her in search of her roots, and, incidently, some murder.

Well, not so incidently. There's lots of suspense, danger, and well-hidden facts that must be ferreted out. The title refers to the hesitations people make when they either don't want to tell the truth, don't know it, or want to keep a secret. That was an interesting I read this before, but forgot it almost completely remembered one incident on page That was an interesting take on the dialogue, something the viewpoint character, Sharon McCone, kept trying out to discover what was really going on.

This entry in the Sharon McCone series offers a deeper look into McCone's past, including some earthshattering news she discovers after the death of her father. I like how Muller's books further every facet of her characters' personalities, instead of ignoring the personal in favor of the professional a la Sue Grafton's latest books or vice versa as many of the "cozies" do.
