Once again, Dr. Bollendorf, with Donna Gluck, has woven a vivid and entertaining tapestry of dysfunctional family dynamics and the ripples of sadness that drug addiction causes. As the effects of addiction explode, the romantic and familial relationships of the well-drawn characters, we see the radius of the blast expand to disrupt communities and cultures, particularly the Native American reservations and the tensions of coexistence with the white cities and towns. The themes of addiction, its treatment, and the recovery process are accurate and informative, but rather than simply exposit these valuable lessons, Autumn Snow wraps it all in an entertaining and suspenseful murder mystery.
“A hell of a good read that entertains as well as informs . . .” (Prof. Frank Salvatini, MEd, CSADC, MISAII, NCACII Coordinator; Addictions Counselor Training Program, College of DuPage).
“This book, the third in the series, is an exciting murder mystery that blends insight into addiction recovery with a mysterious cast of characters. The reader is taken into the dark side of drug dealing and sinister secrets that add to the stresses and trials of a recovering police officer drawn into a web of deceit.”
