New book, Blood On The Feather, by Melinda Elmore released

Contemporary, Native American, romance Archeologist DeShay Graywater is on a dig but what she finds has nothing to do with Native American culture. Tribal Police Detective T.J. Hawke is first on the scene, followed by FBI Agent Melina Wolfe.

Years ago, T.J. and Melina were in love but the night a drunk driver killed Melina's parents changed everything. Now Melina is back on the reservation to track down a murderer, with T.J.'s help. From South Dakota to southern California, the pair follows clues that lead them to a motorcycle gang, drugs, and a barroom brawl. T.J. worries about Melina's safety but she assures him in no uncertain terms that she's a big girl who can take care of herself.

In the end, will Melina come to understand that T.J. is looking out for her because he loves her and plans to marry her? Or will she wind up on the wrong end of a shotgun in the hands of a desperate criminal?

Author Melinda Elmore seamlessly blends contemporary Native American life with the culture, legends and beliefs of the ancestors in Blood On The Feather (Dancing With Bear Publishing", 225 pp., paperback, $9.99, release date 09/15/2011). Incorporating these ancient beliefs with modern day technology gives the reader a unique insight into the past and the present as the characters search for a dangerous criminal who has already killed once.
