Rate this:
"This is the second installment of the story begun in "The Osage Rose." Set in 1923, two years after the first novel, this sequel follows two detectives, the Irish ex-cop J.D. Daugherty, and the part-time detective/part time auto mechanic/fulltime Oklahoma Cherokee Hoolie Smith as they investigate the disappearance of a white geologist, Frank Shotz. The novel is set in the aftermath of the violent Tulsa race riots in June 1921 and moves between its primary setting--the small town of Anadarko, Oklahoma and the adjacent Kiowa allotments--and the secondary setting of Tulsa. It is 1923 and Prohibition is in full swing, thus the two private detectives' investigation into what seems to be a simple missing persons case ultimately brings to light a web of murder, graft, and injustice tied to a network of bootlegging."
