Black dragon by Kirk Mitchell( Book )

In addition to being a fast-paced thriller laced with intrigue and murder, this is also a provocative look at the shameful treatment of Japanese-Americans during World War II. In 1944, Lt. Jared Campbell, head of military police at the Manzanar, Calif., internment camp, finds the body of issei (Japan-born) Masao Shido, apparently a case of seppuku (ritual suicide). Campbell then discovers the headless corpse of the camp's Quaker director. With the help of camp police-chief Hank Fukuda, an American-trained criminologist, Campbell tries to solve the mystery. Suspicion centers on Maj. Tadashi (Eddie) Nitta, a one-armed veteran of the Italian campaign. Some complications arise (an aqueduct near Manzanar is bombed by Japanese explosives) and some are built in (Campbell and Nitta's wife Kimiko are in love). Outsiders Campbell, an Okie escaping from the Dust Bowl, and Fukuda, a nisei torn by two cultures, team up to uncover a land-grab scheme directed against Japanese-American property owners. Fighting powers high in the Fourth Army, Campbell becomes a fugitive in a race to save both Fukuda and Kimiko from the insane killer. This is a bleak and effective book that does not gild the sorry racism of the times

Cry dance by Kirk Mitchell( )

10 editions published between 1999 and 2009 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If there's one thing that Bureau of Indian Affairs Investigator Emmett Quanah Parker knows, it's that the dead don't always stay dead. With him he carries the ghosts of a partner killed in action, three failed marriages, and a long affair with the bottle. And now he's about to face the most dangerous case of his career, one that begins with a body that doesn't stay buried. The corpse of a woman, brutally murdered and bizarrely mutilated, is discovered on Havasupai Nation land. Parker is paired with FBI special agent Anna Turnipseed in a hastily assembled task force of two. The two share a mixed Native American ancestry and little else. As they are pulled deeper into a complex case, Parker suspects they are being led, like Custer to Little Bighorn, into a killer's trap

Ancient ones by Kirk Mitchell( )

12 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Though there are signs of foul play, BIA investigator Emmett Quanah Parker and FBI agent Anna Turnipseed aren't looking for a killer--the remains dug out of the riverbank are 14,000 years old. But the bones have quickly provoked a controversy that threatens to erupt into violence: the skeleton is distinctly Caucasian, not Native American, shattering long-held tenets concerning who the first inhabitants of this continent were. While Emmett and Anna are distracted by the new romantic dimensions of their partnership, the illegal fossil hunter who discovered the skeleton is found disemboweled. Accusations of ritualized murder fly between the Indian and white communities, but the Warm Springs Indians have another theory: that the unburied bones of the Ancient One have been turned into a skep, a murderous spirit that haunts the darkness"--Publisher's description
