Shadow Dancer is a the start of a mystery series about a Native American FBI detective who solves cold cases. In the first book he is called back to the reservation that he grew up on to solve a case that is similar to a personal crime.
The writing is fairly solid. There is no glaring grammar or spelling errors. Overall, the words flow well and it was easy to get pulled into the story. It is a fairly short read, but an engaging one.
There is times when the POV of the novel is fragmented. Specifically in the start of the book, you would have a third person limited view that switched between characters between paragraphs. At times it was even within paragraphs. This mostly stopped after the beginning of the novel.
The characters in this book are distinct with their own unique personalities. It is mostly easy to distinguish between all the characters. The exception being the side female sergeant characters. The secretaries are all women and all pretty cookie cutter. Even the main female characters were not as distinguished as the male characters. However, all characters were fairly stereotypical. Everyone fit into a mold and no one deviated from it. This is a good and fairly quick genre read.
