Wild Sorrow

Sandi Ault, Author . Berkley Prime Crime $24.95 (293p) ISBN 978-0-425-22583-7

Fans of the late Tony Hillerman will embrace Ault’s outstanding third mystery to feature Jamaica Wild, a resource agent for the Bureau of Land Management in Taos, N.M. (after 2008’s Wild Inferno ). When Jamaica seeks shelter during a blizzard in Pueblo Peña at the abandoned San Pedro de Arbués Indian School for her injured horse, Rooster, and her wolf companion, Mountain, she stumbles on a terrifying sight—the frozen corpse of Cassie Morgan, a strangled Anglo woman from whose neck hangs a sign in red crayon that reads “I am not an Indian.” Though Jamaica is horrified to learn that Cassie was a former school matron “remembered for depriving, humiliating, and beating the Indian children,” she continues to help the FBI investigation into what is deemed a hate crime. Outraged by Jamaica’s interference, the twisted killer targets both Jamaica and Mountain. Ault’s wildlife expertise and knowledge of Tanoah culture enhance a poignant plot. (Mar.)
