Praise

Praise for Murder on the Red River

“[Rendon] is one heck of a mystery novelist. Rendon’s Cash Blackbear books are gripping vehicles that tell broader stories about the historical persecution of American Indians.”
—Oprah Daily
 
“[A] searing, soaring, and ultimately unflinching story of how Native people persevere in the face of policies and people that seek to destroy the essence of who they are.”
Debbie Reese, co-editor of An Indigenous Peoples’ History of the United States

“Marcie Rendon’s debut, Murder on Red River, features the magnetic Cash: aged-out foster child, girl pool shark, truck driver from Minnesota’s White Earth reservation . . . Rendon writes of with flat-out authority.”
—Lisa Sandlin, author of Dashiell Prize–winning The Do-Right

“Marcie Rendon, a member of the White Earth Anishinabe Nation, masterfully weaves two stories in a seamless, vivid narrative.”
Los Angeles Review of Books
 
“This accomplished author has clearly undertaken more than a murder story . . . she finds new depth and an ample storytelling platform for her informed views on the historic persecution of Indians.”
Minneapolis Star Tribune
 
“Funny, unflinching, and almost noir in tone, this book is a winner for those with a taste for classic detective fiction with a deeply modern flair.”
—Buzzfeed
 
“[Marcie] Rendon delves deep into the history of Native American communities and the danger of forcing assimilation on a community outside the mainstream of American cultural norms.”
—Twin Cities Pioneer Press
 
“Feisty, sensitive, and smart.”
Publishers Weekly

“Marcie Rendon’s portrait of a Native woman detective is vibrant and rooted in the complexities of history and a place haunted by a violent past that refuses to loosen its grip.”
Jeff Berglund, Ph.D., Director of Liberal Studies, Northern Arizona University
 
“Cash’s life experiences emerge as both landscape and resource to an investigation that engages the reader to the end.”
David Beaulieu, PhD, Professor of American Indian Education, University of Minnesota, Duluth. Enrolled White Earth Ojibwe
 
“This first novel by Marcie Rendon is remarkable.”
—Kathryn Swanson, Augsburg College
