CROTA (Hardcover Edition) by Owl Goingback
Sheriff Skip Harding is investigating a double murder that has shaken the quiet town of Logan, Missouri. A slaughter that seems too brutal for a human perpetrator. A bear, maybe? But there are no bears in the area… bodies begin to pile up, and Skip soon discovers that bullets are useless against this foe. Only with the help of Cherokee game warden Jay Little Hawk, and the wisdom of Lakota medicine man George Strong Eagle, can Skip hope to stop the monster before it’s too late.
A magical tale blending elements of mystery, suspense, and Native American mythology. The novel won the Bram Stoker Award for Best First Novel, and was one of four finalists in the Best Novel category.
