When she gets mad enough, shell send a punishment, like she did in the old days. Lot of people are going to die. The words were spoken by Zebediah Smoke, whose ramshackle property bordered the Cherokee Nations new, half-completed bingo hall. Zebs listeners, his great-nephew and a retired professor who had come to record the old mans stories for posterity, could dismiss his rantings as an old mans melodrama. But in a matter of days Zebs words seemed to come true. The first victim was found in his garage, dead of carbon monoxide poisoning. While the sheriff wanted to rule it a suicide and close the case, Molly Bearpaw, whose own life had been darkened by suicide, was sure that this was not.

So was the teenage daughter of the dead man. And besides, there was the matter of the seven small black stones left in a circle on the seat of Ed Whitekillers pick-up truck. Whitekiller had been chronically unemployed and perpetual womanizer. While Molly was suspicious of his angry wife, and his latest lovers angry husband, she couldnt shake the feeling that this was something other than a crime of passion.

And when another dead man was found within shooting distance of Zebediah Smokes shack, she knew that seven black stones would be found there, too. Now, she only had to find out why... Jean Hagers most masterful work yet, Seven Black Stones captures the confluences of the traditional and the modern forces in contemporary Cherokee life.

With its powerful sense of time and place and rich characterizations, this mystery delves into the issues between men and women, lovers and family, that are common to us all, and thatforce Molly Bearpaw to find not only a killer, but the truths of her own life.
