Since March, we have featured a free e-Book almost every week. As we look toward the long weekend coming up, what could be better than tucking into a good mystery?
For this week’s Free e-Book of the Week, we’re pleased to offer the first of Sara Sue Hoklotubbe’s mystery series, Deception on All Accounts for free download. Set against the backdrop of small-town Oklahoma and its Native culture, Deception on All Accounts draws readers into the real lives of contemporary American Indians as it shines a light on violence, corporate corruption, and prejudice in modern America. As Sadie Walela comes to terms with murder, romance, and her hopes for a career, she finds deception on all accounts.
Deception on All Accounts is the first of four books that feature Sadie. Author Sara Sue Hoklotubbe is a Cherokee tribal citizen. She is the winner of a WILLA Literary Award, Trophy Award for Best Fiction Book by Oklahoma Writers’ Federation, a New Mexico-Arizona Book Award for best mystery/suspense, and a Wordcraft Circle of Native Writers and Storytellers Award for best mystery..

“It’s a pleasure to make the acquaintance of Sadie Walela, a banker in northeastern Oklahoma who is thrust into the role of amateur sleuth after a spate of branch robberies leaves several colleagues dead and her career in critical condition. . . . Hoklotubbe paints a believable picture of Indian-white relations in small-town America and crafts a series protagonist as savvy as she is sweet.”—Booklist
“Evenly paced prose, increasingly suspenseful plotting, and the emergence of a strong heroine characterize this promising first mystery.”—Library Journal
