Silent Are the Dead

(The second book in the Mud Sawpole Mystery series)
A novel by

Perfect for fans of Winter Counts, the Kiowa tribe faces a peril far beyond the spirit world—unless a prodigal daughter can uncover a deadly truth buried in a trove of ancient secrets in D. M. Rowell’s thrilling sequel.

Mud Sawpole recently returned to the Kiowas after leaving a high-powered career and was plunged into the vortex of a crime that nearly consumed her and the tribe. The danger hasn’t gone away—and now, Mud faces an even greater threat. There’s an illegal fracking operation underway that threatens the sanctity of the Kiowas’ ancestral homeland, but there’s also an evil hidden right within the heart of the tribe.

Two Kiowa have been stealing tribal artifacts from needy families, and now the pair of thieves have had a falling out. Not only are there numerous treasures missing—a cherished headdress, sash, and lance, and two of the original Jefferson Peace Medals awarded to the tribe—but there’s a whiff of murder in the air. As Mud and her cousin Denny attempt to retrieve the stolen artifacts, they run headlong into the frackers, who will stop at nothing to get their profits.

Mud retreats to the tribal sweat lodge to garner some insight into the case, and she thinks she finally glimpses the truth. But it’s already too late for one victim—and it looks like Mud is next on the killer’s hit list.
