A murdered man in a field. The sheriff needs Cash—a twenty-something tough, smart Indian woman with special seeing powers. Cash and Sheriff Wheaton make for a strange partnership. He pulled her from her mother’s wrecked car when she was three. He’s kept an eye out for her ever since. It’s a tough place to live—northern Minnesota along the Red River. Cash navigated through foster homes, and at thirteen was working farms. She’s tough as nails, five feet two inches, blue jeans, blue jean jacket, smokes Marlboros, drinks Bud Longnecks. Makes her living driving truck. Playing pool on the side. Wheaton is big lawman type. Maybe Scandinavian stock, but darker skin than most. He wants her to take hold of her life. Get into junior college. So there they are, staring at the dead Indian lying in the field. Soon Cash was dreaming the dead man’s cheap house on the Red Lake Reservation, mother and kids waiting. She has that kind of power. That’s the place to start looking. There’s a long and dangerous way to go to find the men who killed him. Plus there’s Jim, the married white guy. And Long Braids, the Indian guy headed for Minneapolis to join the American Indian Movement.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This accomplished author has clearly undertaken more than a murder story…she finds new depth and an ample storytelling platform for her informed views on the historic persecution of Indians.” Minneapolis Star Tribune
“An appealing nineteen-year-old heroine, Renee ‘Cash’ Blackbear, lifts Rendon’s first mystery.” Publishers Weekly
“Rendon delves deep into the history of Native American communities and the danger of forcing assimilation on a community outside the mainstream of American cultural norms.” Twin Cities Pioneer Press

Unique portrait of a tough woman

It’s not often you come across a compelling story of a Native American woman who was taken away from her mother, forced into the system of home after home, and becoming one spunky, chain-smoking farmworker whose primary means of staying sane is hustling pool for drinks every night. Couple all that with a country girl eventually making it to college, and you’ve got a page-turner and a shout out for women’s rights and tenacity. Highly recommended.
