The Shaman Sings book. I'd been aware of Doss's mystery series for years, but I had never got around to reading any of his books. The Shaman Sings was James D. Doss’ debut novel and I think that shows pretty clearly. There are a lot of elements in the story.

He "saw" the killing in his dreams. Daisy Perika experienced the same visions. An aged Ute shaman who lives in a trailer on the lonesome highlands, hers is the realm of the Native American spirit.

Shaman Mysteries (Hardcover). Book one in my newest series find. I find her original and interesting. In this book there is another mystery to solve (the murder and disappearance of a little girl's parents), some serious mysticism, and tribal lore.

He saw the killin. n his dreams. But Daisy doesn't need scientific proof to know that the student's breakthrough discovery was to kill for. And it isn't over yet. Parrish wants to believe that Daisy can unleash the truth.

James D. Doss' Shamin books are one of my all-time favorite series. I've had them as paperbacks almost since he began publishing them, so I recently decided I just had to have them all in my Kindle. The stories are still some of the funnest (poetic license here) reads on the planet, but I'm very disappointed in the e-version quality. Many, many errors in what must have been a piss-poor scanning or transposing process. The e-books are costing me more than the paperbacks did; is it too much to expect decent editing?

This was my introduction to this series by James Doss, and I believe it is the first in the series. It was said that it is a "Charlie Moon" mystery, but I found that Charlie was only introduced in the book, with the focus being on another character - a chief of police. It was a very written and interesting book. I will definitely look for my James D. Doss mysteries.

This is a great book for people that like some humor with their mysteries. Although the titles of this series sound like the shaman is going to be the main protagonist, it doesn't work that way. There is a very humorous interaction between Charlie Moon, of the Tribal Police, who doesn't believe in magic, and his Grandmother who pretends she doesn't when around the priest but who sneaks out to confer with the local landspirit, a type of dwarf. The mystery is well thought out and kept interesting by the complex (but not TOO complex) characters. Of great importantce to me is that the characters also act within their characterization and motivations. This is a particular joy in this book where Charlie and his Grandmother are often working at cross purposes motive wize and a delightful weave of information back and forth as you move towards the ending. The grandmother in particular is sort of a ute 'maxine' with never a good word to say and a hillarious lineup of grumbles and mumbled complaints.

Wow! Wow, wow, wow. This is really two complete novels in one. The first is a very engaging detective murder mystery and the second is the etherial world of a Native American Shaman.

Both are masterfully written and very engaging. I'm so glad this is the first in a long series. I cannot wait to see where the author takes us in this long, meandering journey!

I bought this and 3 other Doss books. There are 254 pages. Charlie Moon shows up once on page 246. He is not part of the story. This also not a Native American story. Doss threw in random references that had nothing to do with a Shaman singing. The main characters are Caucasian and Mexican. It supposedly is about a major physics discovery, followed by murder, in a small college in a small town staffed by poorly trained, bumbling, police. There is nothing remotely similar to what Tony Hillerman has written. Reader beware.

The characters were unconvincing and flat, and Charlie Moon didn't even show up until near the end of the story, at which time he didn't do much. I read as fast as I could, especially while the development of a tangential character, whom it was clear had little to do with the main story, dragged on.

This was a good story, but I figured out who the culprit was at exactly the halfway mark. I also feel the book was cut short without explanation as to what happened to the old English guy. If you're reading the whole series, like I am, this book is necessary because it's where Moon and Parris meet for the first time. It's not bad. I've become addicted to this series. I'd recommend it.

Good southwestern book. Be aware one character communicates with dead spirits. Not for everyone. Entertaining.
