Rez.: Im ländlichen Montana, wo im Jahr 1948 die alte Machtelite der Großgrundbesitzer das Amt des Sheriffs noch fest im Griff hat, kommen Gerüchte auf über sexuelle Übergriffe gegen Indianerinnen aus dem nahen Reservat; der Täter soll ausgerechnet der Bruder des Sheriffs sein, der allseits geachtete Arzt des Ortes. Wird der Sheriff ihn verhaften oder, ganz im Sinn der weißen Mitbürger, die Sache vertuschen? Berichtet wird aus der Perspektive eines Kindes, des Sohnes des Sheriffs. Der gradlinig erzählte, spannende Roman ist eine Art Gegenstück zu Harper Lees "Wer die Nachtigall stört", eine geglückte Mischung aus Kriminalstory, Familiensaga, Adoleszenzroman, "Heimatroman" auf amerikanisch - original als preiswertes Taschenbuch zu haben. Sehr empfohlen
