coyotes song

A mysterious 30-year old Miwok Indian woman has visions about the victim in Det. Annie Avants case, Green Witch, Dead Witch. Who is this woman, and what is her connection with Kern County? She lives in the mountains of Calaveras County, near West Point, on indian land.
Evangeline Mason has a mystery of her own. Is she the fulfillment of an old Miwok Legend:

There was a legend among the Sierra Band of Miwok Indians. It said that a female would someday become the Shaman of the band and she would reunite the Miwok Indians and make them strong again. Many people believed in the legend at first but, throughout the years, less and less Miwoks even remembered the legend and it didn’t get passed down to the newer generations. At least, not to all of them.
There were a few who still remembered, and waited. The old Shaman was one of the believers, but one day he walked into the mountains and was never seen again. Everyone thought he had gone away to die.
The band dwindled after that. They had a chief who was strong, but the young people left, especially those who lived in the isolated mountain town of West Point, California. There was nothing there for them.
Then, one day in 1989, a little Miwok girl disappeared from her front yard on the reservation.

This book tells the story of Evangeline Mason and  begins on August 6, 1989, the day she disappeared from the front yard of her home on indian land just outside of West Point, California.  Where did she go?  What happened to her?  How did she get involved with Detective Annie Avants?

Great Review for “DAMAGE CONTROL”

Damage Control by Renee Benzaim

Review by Devi Nair

March 4, 2015

damage control
Annie Avants is slowly becoming my favorite now. I started with her 4th book, then I went back and started with #1. Damage control is the #3 in the series of Det. Annie Avants mysteries. Every book sees her getting evolved from a new Detective, slowly gaining experience and developing character. The supporting characters in the series like her boyfriend, Jesse, her partner, Tom, and other people in her team.

Damage Control is about a missing and presumed dead attorney, and murders that follow. The thing with this book is that the clues are always right in front. Throughout the book, you could always feel “Maybe this character is the killer. But maybe, this is too easy and someone else just might be the killer” and it turns out you are right. That gives an amazing feeling because after so many years of reading murder mysteries, you have finally come and realized for a change, who the murderer is. Or maybe Renee is just letting you go easy on this one and will give a killer on the next one…

I thoroughly enjoyed the journey with Annie Avants yet again. It is always fun going on an adventure with her. She feels like the next Nancy Drew going on. I am going on to the next book pretty soon
