Murder on the Mattaponi

Murder on the Mattaponi

A novel by

MURDER ON THE MATTAPONI is romantic suspense filled with love and loss, betrayal and faith. Prescott Custalow, Mattaponi Native American, searches for a killer despite danger and despair, ultimately discovering what she truly loves and knows to be true.
Having run from the Mattaponi reservation in Virginia when she turned 18, Prescott Custalow returns for the first time in fifteen years to attend her grandfather's funeral. Her older brother, Danny, doesn't attend the graveside service, but the FBI is there in force. Press discovers that her brother has been leading a movement to return to the Old Ways on the reservation, and the FBI suspect him of bombing a station that has been diverting the sacred Mattaponi River into a nearby city's reservoir, where the water is being sold for the city's profit. When his body is found beside the river, she searches for his killer.
Curtis Tayloe, Press's first love, has carried a torch for her, but their lives took different paths. Press must work through her revived feelings for Curtis and her tribe's distrust of her presence on the reservation. When she is threatened, then forced to run for her life, she knows there is more trouble on the reservation than a bombing.
Tribal traditions, the ancient gods, and the most sacred of all places demand that she think, for the first time in too many years, like a Mattaponi if she is to unmask Danny's killer and save her own life. Whether she finds her way back to Curtis is part of her journey, one that takes her deep into her own heart and beliefs.
