Murder of Ravens (Gabriel Hawke)
by Paty Jager
I loved the story. Halfway through the book, the identity of the perp is revealed but the ending turned out to be quite surprising.
~The Book Decoder
Murder of Ravens is a fresh and unique mystery by new-to-me author Paty Jager. This traditional mystery, book #1 in a new series, has good character depth and features a strong Native American character.
~The Power of Words
MURDER OF RAVENS is an intriguing mystery set in Eastern Oregon, in the mountains, along the rivers, and in small close-knit communities (read, everybody, knows everybody else’s business).
~Mallory Heart’s Cozies
The blend of nature tracking, clues, and the animals makes for a fascinating mystery that is hard to put down.

Some interesting history is also revealed as we get drawn into the seedy underside of greed and power.
A solid mystery with a lovely backdrop and some dabs of romance made this one a fun read for me.
Her (Jager’s) writing is well-crafted, gripping, authentic. The story appeals right from the beginning, mainly because of her unique protagonist, Fish & Wildlife State Trooper Gabriel Hawke. Readers will eagerly follow every step (and miss-step) of his investigation into this complex, multi-faceted murder.
