"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. "
"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."
"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."
"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."
