"I cannot praise this book highly enough. It penetrates the hearts of the characters and mine as well. It is vivid, it is graphic, it is compassionate. Above all it is true. "
— Sally Fellows, June 2000 Reviewing the Evidence.com

"Letha Albright may be the best-kept secret in mystery today. I dare you to try reading the first page of this book and not keep going."
— Steve Hamilton, Edgar Award-winning author of A Cold Day in Paradise and North of Nowhere

"Letha Albright has conjured up a dust devil of a story, a complex tale that spins across the pages in powerful language, with dark secrets at its heart. Albright has staked as her own a beautifully detailed chunk of the Oklahoma territory full of modern Indians, old grudges, and perplexing death. I guarantee this book will keep you guessing until the final revelation on the final page."
— William Kent Krueger, author of Iron Lake and Purgatory Ridge

"Letha Albright’s first novel, TULSA TIME, arrested readers with its lyrical descriptions of northeastern Oklahoma and the complexity of its protagonist, reporter Viv Powers. In DAREDEVIL’S APPRENTICE, she ups the tempo to an urgent beat when Viv finds herself entangled in a murder case involving her best friend, Indian artist Lucie Dreadfulwater. Albright’s talent in creating real people and real emotions clearly separates her from the crowded mystery field and makes her an author to watch."
— Susan McBride, author of Overkill and Then She Was Gone

"DAREDEVIL’S APPRENTICE is an intriguing mystery. Although the story opens in the Cherokee County of today’s Oklahoma, Letha Albright spins a web of death that vibrates with secrets and legends reaching back to Cherokees of yore."
— Michael Kahn, author of Bearing Witness
