    • Abstract:
      Summary: "Her name is Renee Blackbear, but what most people call the 19-year-old Ojibwe woman is Cash. She lived all her life in Fargo, sister city to Minnesota's Moorhead, just downriver from the Cities. She has one friend, the sheriff Wheaton. He pulled her from her mother's wrecked car when she was three. Since then, Cash navigated through foster homes, and at 13 was working farms, driving truck. Wheaton wants her to take hold of her life, signs her up for college. She gets an education there at Moorhead State all right: sees that people talk a lot but mostly about nothing, not like the men in the fields she's known all her life who hold the rich topsoil in their hands, talk fertilizer and weather and prices on the Grain Exchange. In between classes and hauling beets, drinking beer and shooting pool, a man who claims he's her brother shows up, and she begins to dream the Cities and blonde Scandinavian girls calling for help."--Provided by publisher.

Although Renee "Cash" Blackbear is most comfortable drinking and playing pool in her favorite bar in Fargo, ND, she's enrolled in college at Moorhead State in Minnesota, thanks to Sheriff Wheaton. He's taken an interest in the 19-year-old Native American ever since he pulled her from a car accident at age three. She's escaped foster homes and abuse but is still a loner at school, one of a handful of Native Americans enrolled there in the late 1960s. Before she even learns about Janet Tweed's disappearance, Cash dreams about a blonde girl calling for help. The vision changes to include two blondes when another girl disappears. Cash asks questions, but when she journeys to Minneapolis/St. Paul, she's pulled into the room where the lost girls are kept. White slavery, Vietnam, the American Indian Movement, and young Native Americans lost to their families are important issues in this melancholy mystery. VERDICT Native American author Rendon's authentic story of a brooding, displaced young woman follows up Murder on the Red River and will appeal to readers looking for fresh voices and characters, as well as stories with a strong sense of place and historical atmosphere.—Lesa Holstine, Evansville Vanderburgh P.L., IN

In Rendon's refreshing sequel to 2017's Murder on the Red River, 19-year-old Renee "Cash" Blackbear is a freshman at Minnesota's Moorhead State College, thanks to her friend and mentor, Sheriff Dave Wheaton. The whip-smart member of the Anishinabe nation tests out of her English and science classes, which allows her time to earn money driving trucks and beating cocky white guys at the pool table playing eight-ball. When she hears about a missing coed, she contacts Wheaton. Since they previously worked together successfully on a murder, Wheaton trusts Cash's sharp instincts and asks for her help in solving the case. The disappearance of a second student raises the ante. Cash must rely on her grit and determination to avoid a similar fate. Rendon, herself a member of the White Earth Anishinabe Nation, highlights the plight of Native Americans who were forcibly adopted by whites and Cash's discomfort in a land that is and is not hers. Readers will look forward to Cash's next outing. (May)
