    I have to admit right off the bat that this certainly wasn't the best writing I have ever read (there were enough typos, being a small publishing company, to peeve my perfectionist self off at times), but if you're willing to look past that, this was an intriguing mystery of the Southwest. It lived up to the promise on the cover: "blends art theft, fraud, archeological and ecological vandalism, and murder with the fascination with Indian rock art and mythology." Like any good mystery should, the story and plot line really kept me guessing. Some of the legalities towards the end of the story were a bit cumbersome, but I was interested the entire time, and I always enjoyed reading this book and found myself immersed in the story for hours at a time. I gave this a 3-star rating because Parrish was a little heavy on the details at times, and I got lost in dialogue a few times because there wasn't a lot of "he said," "she said," etc. Also with there being a lot of characters involved, sometimes it was confusing as they were introduced in big groups, instead of letting the reader get to know each of the characters a little at a time. Other than that, I liked this novel. Parrish painted an enchanting picture of the Arizona landscape, he incorporated a bit of humor which made the mystery less burdensome, and he presented the "Legend of the Blue Owl" with the respect and reverence that the ancient legend deserves.
