In 1914 Oklahoma, Alafair Tucker's daughter, Mary, is chaperoning her uncle and his beloved as they go for a pleasant ride. When the party is attacked, a bullet grazes Mary's temple, and her uncle is killed. Later his fiancée is found "beat up but alive." After a suspicious fire, Alafair, fears for Mary's safety and joins the hunt for the culprit. Pam Ward reads the Oklahoma voices with a hint of a twang and a heaping dose of Alafair's motherly concern. Ward even gets to sing in character as Alafair comforts Mary and rides herd on her brood. Casey's novel is satisfying both for its mystery and for its glimpses of early-twentieth-century Oklahoma, which include recipes and facts about the era at the end.
