The Shaman Sings: In the Shaman Sings, a physics student, one Priscilla Song is brutally murdered in an exceedingly peaceful town, Granite Creek, Colorado. All the signs point to one, Julio Pacheco, a maintenance worker, who serves at Rocky Polytechnic University. What made Julio, the main suspect is that he has always had an eye for Priscilla. Pacheco is a bad assed illegal Mexican immigrant. Scott Paris, the chief of Police, is not exceedingly sure because he had only dreamt about the killing. Daisy Perika on the other hand, an old Ute woman, also experienced the same dream. She understands the fact that the student, Priscilla was on the breakthrough of discovery. As all these things happen, the killings still go on and also spread all the way to the capital. Parris should not only trust the supernatural, but she should also be able to come up with the identity of a killer as well.
The Shaman Laughs: The second book in the Charlie Moon book series. In this book, we meet once again with Scott Parris, the chief of police once again. In Shaman Laughs, Scott is enjoying his hard earned vacation. However, Scott comes to learn that someone was not only mutilating cattle but also appeared to be performing an exceedingly bizarre ritual. It does not take long before the despised Arlo Nightbird is killed in cold blood. Moon and Parris must be able to locate the killer before the new agent puts it on someone whom they know is innocent.
