Book review: “Death on the Greasy Grass”

Posted by Nichole on March 16, 2015 in Book Reviews, Mystery |

greasygrassI picked this one up because of the title: Death on the Greasy Grass.  I mean, seriously.  Greasy Grass.  How amazingly descriptive is that?

Then I read the book’s summary and I knew I had to buy it.  There’s a Battle of Little Big Horn reenactment, an FBI agent trying to take a few days off, and a murder.  Honestly, could this book be any more up my ally?

FBI Agent Manny Tanno is taking a few days off with his cop-buddy Willie.  They decide to check out a reenactment of the Battle of Little Big Horn–also called the Battle of Greasy Grass Creek.  And, wouldn’t you know it, a modern day murder takes place.

As Manny and Willie look into the murder (Manny because the FBI assigned him to the case, Willie because he’s hanging out with Manny), they are thrust into a mystery hundreds of years in the making.

This is the third in a series.  I enjoyed it so much that I actively went out to get the first two, although I haven’t cracked the spines on them yet.

This is a great novel for anyone who enjoys mysteries, historical fiction, or Native American stories.  The author, C.M. Wendelboe, does a great job of describing some of the more beautiful and remote areas of the Black Hills, which is yet another reason I enjoyed the book.

So tell me, have you read any of the Spirit Road Mysteries?  What did you think?
