The Stick Game

(2000)
(The seventh book in the Gabriel Du Pre series)
A novel by

 
With their exceptional characterizations, evocative setting, and smartly plotted mysteries, Peter Bowen's Montana novels have always fascinated readers and critics alike. In The Stick Game, Bowen's lyrical, spare writing carries us once again to a part of the country few of us know much about. The latest installment in this unique series finds amateur sleuth and cattle rancher Gabriel Du Pré uncovering the dirty secrets of an industrial gold mine and searching for a troubled teenage boy. At a trading fair in rural Montana, Du Pré and his longtime love Madelaine run into Jeanne, a cousin and childhood friend of Madelaine's. Having recently gotten her life back on track after the end of an abusive marriage, Jeanne now worries about the disappearance of her sixteen-year-old son, Danny. Meanwhile, Du Pré befriends a musician from Fort Belknap Reservation who introduces him to disturbing parallels between the huge incidence of birth defects in the Indian population there and the activities of the Persephone gold mine located near the reservation. With some reluctance, Du Pré agrees to look into both problems. But then Danny's body is found in a well, and Du Pré discovers a link between the boy's life and what goes on at Fort Belknap. Working with a doctor who's long been concerned about Persephone's practices, Du Pré dangerously confronts the indifference and recklessness of the industrial mine.Perfectly capturing the cadences of Métis life, Peter Bowen beautifully depicts the people and landscape of remote Montana.
