At seven feet tall, Colorado rancher and Ute tribal investigator Charlie Moon is a larger-than-life figure--and a force to be reckoned with, on and off the reservation...

Hard times have come to Colorado, and Moon's ranch is feeling the pinch. Not so for Samuel Reed. He seems to have a special intuition when it comes to picking stocks, and claims to be able to remember the future, which gives him quite a leg up on Wall Street. So Reed is quite confident when he makes a wager with Moon's best friend, Granite Creek Chief of Police Scott Parris, that Parris can't keep him alive.

Even when Reed doesn't offer any details beyond the date and time of his impending demise, Moon has a sixth sense that everything will turn out just fine...until not one, but two men end up left for dead. Now it's up to Moon--along with the help of his Aunt Daisy, an aged Ute shaman who can communicate with the spirit world--to solve the case. Or die trying...

This was a very unconventional mystery, if it can be called a mystery at all. There are elements of the supernatural or spirit world, con-man activities and more...that lead to murder. It was written in an omnipotent-narrator style. The author even explains the thoughts of characters. While it is different from earlier volumes in the series, I thoroughly enjoyed the author's weaving of a tale involving Charlie Moon, his friend Police chief Scott, his aunt Daisy and his pseudo-niece Sarah.
