Biografia breu
David Heska Wanbli Weiden, an enrolled citizen of the Sicangu Lakota nation, was named by the New York Times as one of “the most critically acclaimed young novelists working now.”  His debut novel, WINTER COUNTS, was called a “once-in-a-generation thriller” by the Los Angeles Times, a “worthy addition to the burgeoning canon of indigenous literature” by Library Journal, and one of the “best crime novels of all time” by Time and Parade magazines. Weiden is the first Native American author to win an Anthony Award and the Thriller Award, and the second to be nominated for the Edgar Award. His short fiction has appeared in numerous anthologies and has been selected for Best American Mystery and Suspense Stories.

This book is the first that I have read about life on a reservation. It has inspired me to learn more about it. The author provides recommended reading In the "author's note".
As a thriller, it delivered! The story was well written and the characters interesting. The author created names such as Delia Kills in Water" and Virgil Wounded Horse, and eventually it becomes evident what the names represent. This added an extra layer of interest for me, as I anticipated the "reveal" for each character.
And, a satisfying ending.

great first book. shows what a mystery can do, use the story to highlight social and political issues.
The references to the native foods movement and to some cermonies were interesting and the characters were appealing. a bit on the violent side.

I wanted to like this book more than I did. It was about a 2.5 for me. It started great but lost steam and I couldn’t stop thinking that I had read this plot so many times before but better.
