Sinister Graves

Marcie Rendon, who is White Earth Ojibwe, was listed by Oprah as one of thirty-one Native American authors to read. Sinister Graves is the latest Cash Blackbear novel. Rendon’s Girl Gone Missing was a Sue Grafton Award nominee, and Murder on the Red River received the Pinckley Women’s Crime Novel Award. Rendon draws inspiration from rural life, where secrets are sometimes deadly. Writing her truth (as fiction), she is able to educate a broad audience about current Native American issues. 

Set in 1970s Minnesota, Sinister Graves features the return of Cash Blackbear in a thrilling, poignant mystery. Nineteen-year-old Cash must uncover the truth about a woman’s body that floats into town in the spring floodwaters and the small, unmarked graves beside a pastor’s family plot in a church graveyard.
