Book description…

New Mexico: The Land of Enchantment, Excitement, Intrigue, mystery and double-cross. While golfing in the Conrad Hilton Open in Socorro, New Mexico, former Miss New Mexico, now detective, Miitrai Riley is ‘blasted’ into a case of attempted murder of young space scientist Will Craven. Earlier, violence erupted on a dark Sunday night in the small ‘rustic’, town of Frisco Flats, where Craven and his priest were discussing ‘morality questions’ of his research of the scientist’s ‘secret’ space discovery. The Vatican was contacted, the answer was ‘stop’; a scientist-partner ‘mentioned’ it to his fiancée at a mega-church; it was a secret no longer. After leaving the rectory, a bizarre ‘bola’ assault was made against Cravenby a motor-cycle rider a warning was given to him and the Priest. Later the bike-rider ‘dumps’ near a bridge in town. His back-pack with a ‘pendant’ inside is pitched into the water where later a corgi dog finds it. The pack is taken to the local Sheriff, Frank Baca. Two weeks later, a ‘fisherman’ arrives in town seeking the pendant, ‘ I lost while fishing’. Sheriff Baca is suspicious. Lead flies and the fisherman dies. Others arrive seeking the ‘pendant’. Native American Detective, Miitrai Riley realizes the pendant is similar to one her old grand mama on the Acoma Pueblo has kept for years. – ‘strange’. Mysteries abound as violence escalates; a kidnapping in front of the cathedral in Santa Fe, a gun fight in Frisco Flats and a violent crash of a multi-million corporate jet at an Alabama airport keep the action level high. The young woman detective uncovers a crime infested foreign corporation, a huge religious money laundering scam, both seeking to recover the pendant and stopping Craven’s research. County, State, Indian Reservation and FBI agencies interact in the final events. The case comes to an explosive end in a mysterious building near the ‘atomic city’ of Los Alamos. Or did it?

Introducing Susan Fedorko, author of Cricket

“Brie, my Author Representative, was very sensitive and worked with me, and seemed to magically sense my frustration in my email responses. She was always kind, and relayed thoughtful and helpful replies. I am so glad that we worked together and established a relationship within the 100s of emails we exchanged. She is an asset to Outskirts Press! She’s the best!”

Book description…

No matter what I am called, I am more than a name. Susan Fedorko had always known she was put up for adoption before she was even a year old. And she had always known she was Native American. But when she turned eighteen, she felt the need to know more about herself. She received some information about her birth parents through the adoption agency, but there was so little to go on. She gave up her search many times. For the next twenty years Susie was busy with marriage and motherhood. Finally, in 2002 and at the age of forty, she received the phone call that would change her life. Someone was looking to find her. And what she discovered was astonishing. Susan’s birth mother was the first Native American supermodel, Cathee Dahmen-an international fashion model with two celebrity marriages under her belt-and her great uncle was the famed Native American artist, George Morrison. Cricket is the incredible story of one woman’s journey to discover her roots and define her place in a newly complex and extended family-with her adoptive family, her birth family, and her husband and daughters. It’s the story of who she was “before,” who she became “after,” and how it all happened.
