A Kiowa Country Mystery
By Tom Holm
The University of Arizona Press
This is the second installment of the story begun in The OsageRose. Set in 1923, two years after the first novel, this sequelfollows two detectives, the Irish ex-cop J.D. Daugherty, and thepart-time detective/part time auto mechanic/fulltime Oklahoma CherokeeHoolie Smith as they investigate the disappearance of a whitegeologist, Frank Shotz. The novel is set in the aftermath of theviolent Tulsa race riots of June 1921 and moves between itsprimary setting -- the small town of Anadarko, Oklahoma and theadjacent Kiowa allotments -- and the secondary setting of Tulsa. It is1923 and Prohibition is in full swing, thus the two privatedetectives’ investigation into what seems to be a simple missingpersons case ultimately brings to light a web of murder, graft, andinjustice tied to a network of bootlegging.
