Jake Jakubowski, a 70-year-old Michigan priest temporarily assigned to a New Mexican village, helps Detective Sonia Mora investigate a fetus found in an irrigation sluice, which prompts reopening a cold case about the death of a wealthy ranchers wife. The picketing of a soldiers funeral that turns deadly; a brash anthropologists excavation for Civil War Apache scout remains; and Mexican folk healing customs to cure a daughter of the debilitating effects of her fathers Prolonged Grief Disorder, propel the plot amid a stunning landscape of contemporary New Mexico. In a sequel to The Ghosts of Glorieta, Fr. Jake Jakubowski, a 70-year-old Michigan priest, is again embroiled in criminal activity at the fictional New Mexico village of Providencia. The discovery of a fetus in an irrigation sluice prompts Detective Sonia Mora to reopen a cold case involving the accidental death of a ranchers wife. His daughter, Dulci, struggles to escape the suffocating effects of her fathers Prolonged Grief Disorder and a Mexican folk healers treatments. A fundamentalist churchs picketing of a soldiers funeral twice turns deadly for the priest; a brash anthropologist purports to have found remains of an Apache scout in a Civil War forts cemetery; and a thwarted helicopter escape plan results in the establishment of a horse sanctuary that helps Dulci recover. Several village residents from Ghosts reappear amid a background of contemporary New Mexican secular and religious customs and locations. There is much to enjoy in this compelling mystery novel: Noyers New Mexico setting is rich in descriptions, with a central theme of an irrigation sluice (acequia) the life blood of rural residents livelihoods which is skillfully intertwined with bodies, superstitions and drama.

Jake, are sustained by their work, religion and customs. A fetus discovered in the sluice prompts the reopening of a cold case and engages an ongoing mystery until the very end. Carolyn Page , co-author Bones of Contention: A Maine Mystery After reading the Prologue of the second Fr. Jake Mystery, I knew something sinister would happen: under a blue September sky, an Arabian stallion being loaded into a trailer abruptly rears up and kicks out its hind legs; both horse and the female equestrian owner die. This accident sets the direction of the novel, which will engulf Father Jake thirteen years later. The author uses his skills to paint you into the New Mexico landscape, making readers one with the 70-year-old priests parishioners in experiencing danger, local history, archaeological digs, folklore customs, contemporary Catholicism, and final resolution.

No one can accuse Kevin Canty of seeing the world through rose-colored glasses. In his first novel, Into the Great Wide Open, he put his young lovers on a slow train to heartache; in his second, Nine Below Zero, the train derails entirely. The protagonist here is Marvin Deernose, a Native American fighting a powerful appetite for alcohol and drugs. While driving on a snowy Montana road one morning, Marvin comes across a car wreck and rescues the occupant--elderly Senator Henry Neihart. But this act of kindness only puts Marvin in harm's way as he becomes embroiled in the old man's tangled familial relations, and involved with his emotionally damaged granddaughter, Justine. As Canty writes it, the love affair between poor, broken Justine and self-destructive Marvin is as unavoidable as it is tragic, and both characters know it. "He felt a small, sharp stab of guilt. Not only that he was fucking this rich girl, bad enough, but he was tearing himself down at the same time. When you know a thing isn't right and you do it anyway, pretending. He felt himself thin out." In the author's universe, his characters have free will, but generally make the wrong choices anyway. Dark as Nine Below Zero may be, Canty's powerful writing and multifaceted characters make it a compelling read. --Alix Wilber contemporary,literary,literature and fiction Literature & Fiction, Vintage
