New Murder Mystery Highlights Native American Culture

Portsmouth, NH (PressExposure) June 05, 2014 -- Sedona: Tricksters and Fools (ISBN: 978-0991623082), which was recently released by MindStir Media, a leader among book publishing companies, is a highly engaging murder mystery with a focus on Native American culture...Jamie Broken Wing and Charlie Two Fires, Native American art students at the University of Northern Arizona in Flagstaff, decide to spend the summer painting in Sedona. Their summer turned into an entirely different adventure than they planned on. Human bones found by Jamie's dog, Star, while they were painting on Loy Mesa, led them into incredible events of greed, art, drug dealings and murder. The bones were found in close proximity to an archaeological site and because they appeared old, Jamie and Charlie's Uncle Max was called in as the forensic anthropologist for the Yavapai Nation. Jamie and Charlie both born to the Yavapai Nation were raised in totally different cultures; Jamie on the Umatilla Reservation and Charlie in New York City. Therefore, their perception of spiritual things was very different than that of their Uncle Max. The mysterious appearance of a Kachina throughout the summer took their adventures to a spiritual level. The difference between Tricksters and Fools became obvious.

"Many authors come to me for help to self publish a book," said J.J. Hebert, bestselling author and president at MindStir Media. "J. Starkey-Saylor's 'Sedona: Tricksters and Fools' is among the best books I've read. I was thrilled to help her with self-publishing and even more thrilled to see that the book is being embraced by readers..."

The book has done well at Amazon and Barnes & Noble websites. One reviewer's five-star review hailed the book as a "well thought out murder mystery." Sedona: Tricksters and Fools is available in paperback at online retailers worldwide for $12.99 (retail). The ebook will be available by mid-June 2014. Connect with the author and learn more at
