Présentation de l'éditeur

Cold River Resurrection - If you love action-packed thrillers, don't miss this journey with city girl Jennifer Kruger as she trespasses on the Cold River Indian Reservation, searching for a legendary creature. Thriller and crime writer Ann Rule said, "Smith is a writer on his way straight up."
Cold River Resurrection has scenes in the highest power centers of the United States, on reservations, and in Mexico.
On a sunny July day, Jennifer becomes lost in a sacred wilderness area and stumbles upon evidence of terror and murder. As darkness falls, she learns of crimes that modern day tribal police know only too well - insertion of meth on reservations by cartels, mid-eastern jihadists laundering money in Indian casinos, and the secret creatures in the sacred areas of the reservation that the Indians won't talk about. A night of terror begins for Siyapu (white girl) Jennifer Kruger.
Tribal Police Lieutenant Smokey Kukup, a veteran of the Afghanistan war, uses traditional Indian methods to track Jennifer.
As they are caught up in a modern war, Smokey tries to keep his precocious daughter, Laurel, as well as those who trespass on the reservation, safe from harm.
Cold River Resurrection - an Amazon best-seller, with almost 200 five star reviews.
Author Enes Smith has been a panelist with Michael Connelly at the Bouchercon, the World Mystery Writers Conference. He has been a homicide detective, a SWAT commander, and on two separate occasions, a tribal police chief. His first novel, Fatal Flowers, was published worldwide by Putnam.

Biographie de l'auteur

Enes Smith relied upon his experience as a homicide detective to write his first two novels, "Fatal Flowers" Berkley 1992, and "Dear Departed" Berkley 1994. Crime author Ann Rule wrote, "Fatal Flowers is a chillingly authentic look into the blackest depths of a psychopah's fantasies." Smith's work as a tribal police chief led to his Indian Cold River series, "Cold River Rising," and "Cold River Resurrection." He has been a college instructor and adjunct professor, teaching a vast array of courses in criminology and sociology. He is a frequent keynote speaker at regional and national events and has been a panelist at The Bouchercon, the World Mystery Convention.

HASH(0x87578dd4) étoiles sur 5 I hope this series continues 17 mai 2011

This is the second in the Cold River series, and it's a winner as well. There are occasional Kindle conversion issues (extra hyphens), and a couple of grammatical issues (there is truly a difference between lightening and lightning, and the same also goes for shear and sheer). Overall, it's a much cleaner manuscript and an enjoyable read.

Bigfoot hunters are visiting the distant reaches of the Cold River reservation, hoping to find the Big Guy and get good photos and more. These people are coming in from public lands and crossing the reservation borders to areas that might be good habitat. One woman decides this is for the birds and starts hiking out, but she gets lost. In her wanderings she finds not one, but two bodies, while hearing and seeing things she doesn't understand, but they send her into unreasoning panic and terror. She wanders the forest for several days in a fugue state, nearly dying before tribal trackers find her. They also find the first body, who turns out to have terrorist connections...what will they learn from the second body when they find it?

As news gets out about her rescue, the wrong people hear about it and decide she's a risk to them. A Mexico-based meth distributor/manufacturer with reservation connections resolves that she has to die, as well as anyone she might have spoken to about what she saw in the woods.

At times the story line is a little improbable, and you're really better off just going along for the ride without wondering why a megalomaniac drug lord is taking such extreme measures, but it makes a great tale.
There is a love story woven in as well, with the rescued woman falling in love with the man who takes a major part in her rescue. As he realizes that too many mysterious people are taking an interest in this investigation, and the Feds aren't talking, he takes a personal interest in her safety. Going to the local hospital to see her, he finds a bloodbath in progress, with commando-types kidnapping her from her room.

The tribal characters are the best part of this book - I wonder if some of the real people gave permission for their names to be used. I especially like "Plug," a man of short, stout build, with few words to say. Smokey, the hero in this book, is a likable widower with a young daughter, who is also a charming kid. They're just the pair for the rescued woman to fall in love with, if only they can all stay alive long enough.

The roots of the story are essentially true - there is a huge problem with meth in the Indian lands, and bad things do happen out in the back country. Some of them make it into the news, but most of them only circulate by word of mouth. Some are probably not true. And Bigfoot? Maybe.

One detail should have been explained at greater length for those unacquainted with tribal funeral customs. There is a reference to preparing a man for his funeral "for the dressing." Some might not understand that this is referring to the dressing ceremony, attiring the deceased in his regalia or his best clothes in preparation for being laid to rest.

HASH(0x8e46803c) étoiles sur 5 Tom Clancy Meets the Oregon Wilderness 8 août 2012
Par Willie B. - Publié sur Amazon.com

It doesn't hurt to be a native Oregonian to love this book, but then it doesn't hurt to be Tom Clancy fan, either. Enes Smith writes about what he knows best: police work and that part of the Oregon high desert and eastern Cascades that are home to a sovereign nation within the United States of America.

Smith's easy-going writing style folds the small details of the lives of his characters into a fast-paced, white-knuckled action ride that winds and weaves the threads of the plot into the sort of roller-coaster usually reserved for the big screen. Timing is everything here. Smith uses multiple points of view, bringing the reader into the narrative through the eyes of his characters -- heroes, villains and supporting players alike. You are drawn helplessly into the narrative with an intimacy and urgency that makes the pages fly. Many chapters end with a mental observation by the character through whose eyes you have just been experiencing events, and then a teaser from the uber-narrator (Smith) that gives a frightening glimpse into the future.

And, did I mention the Oregon mountains and high desert? Thinly disguised as the "Cold River" Indian reservation, we experience something of the Warm Springs Indian Reservation in north-central Oregon that would otherwise be closed to us. The author takes us through that heart-stoppingly beautiful wilderness into places that few Siyapu (white people) ever see, and most of that privileged few only see from afar on backpacking trails skirting its borders or looking down through airplane windows.

It also doesn't hurt to read Smith's earlier novel, "Cold River Rising" before you pick up "Cold River Resurrection." And when you have finished both, you will be salivating for another.

This is an A-plus summer read.

It's called foreshadowing and is a way to pique or keep your interest but a little goes a long way. In this novel, at the end of every chapter the author throws in foreshadowing of things to come. And all the hints are of really bad things to come. I can't figure out why anyone would read after the first few chapters when we already know that nothing good is going to happen. Also, we have a heroine who starts out befuddled, becomes completely psychotic while she is lost then turns into a wonder woman after her rescue. Oh and BTW she is 29 years old and still clings to a doll and falls immediately into like with her rescuer. Add a tribal policeman who never misses his target and the usual clueless FBI agents and you have a mess. Not worth reading.

HASH(0x8e4682f4) étoiles sur 5 Could there be a dumber ending? 26 août 2014

Spoiler alert. The ending spoils the book. The characters are catchy and much of the writing is dandy but there are too many "but why would they do that?" moments and a very goofy ending. I've read the first two in the series but I think I'm done with them...

HASH(0x8e468354) étoiles sur 5 Foreshadowing sustains suspense 11 mars 2015
Par Bichon Mom - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
The ominous foreshadowing technique used by the author at the end of certain chapters helps to increase the suspense level in this interesting mystery. While it is the second in a series, it is definitely a stand alone book. The characterizations and details of the Indian culture make this a unique and very readable story. As I was reading, I was sure that I would be rating this book a full four stars. However, the climax was so disappointing and took the genre from police procedural to paranormal. This unrealistic ending just seemed to be a poor resolution to an insurmountable plot point and left me feeling dissatisfied with the book.
