Coyote Alibi

Naaltsoos Press

Narrated by Renee Dodd

8 hr 33 min

First in a new series for readers who like Janet Evanovich and Tony Hillerman

On the edge of the Navajo Nation, rookie paralegal Naomi Manymules pauses on a lakeside cliff top to enjoy a moonlit moment. She hears someone swimming in the darkness far below her, and a boat drifts out of the shadows. When she glimpses something that might be a naked butt shining in the moonlight, she decides to head for home. Only later does she discover that what she'd seen was the bare behind of a murdered sleaze. His passing upsets exactly no one, but, unfortunately, his wife can offer only a coyote for an alibi. The police aren't inclined to look much further for a suspect, so that leaves Naomi and her new boss, attorney Grant Carson, to do the looking. All they have to do is navigate the steady stream of likely culprits who show up in the office—surly teenagers, prominent locals, a good-looking loser worried about
his dog, a mobster or two—and become targets themselves.

Meet the sleuths:

Naomi Manymules is bluffing her way into a new paralegal career for which she is not entirely qualified. Luckily, she’s smart and feisty and has lived in Sage Landing all her life, so she knows just about everything that goes on here on the western edge of the Navajo Nation. She’s also got some training and a lot of motivation; as a divorced, thirty-something mom of two, she needs a steady job and wants a stable career.

Grant Carson is middle-aged, cynical, and handsomely scruffy. He’s a reluctant attorney, a tough ex-prosecutor from Phoenix who has escaped to a remote lakeside town to practice just enough law to augment his small pension. Since arriving in Sage Landing, he's kept company with some attractive women, but the real passion of his life is his old yacht, the Deep Inn.

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY NPR • NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

From award-winning author Alan Bradley comes the next cozy British mystery starring intrepid young sleuth Flavia de Luce, hailed by USA Today as “one of the most remarkable creations in recent literature.”
 
Eleven-year-old amateur detective and ardent chemist Flavia de Luce is used to digging up clues, whether they’re found among the potions in her laboratory or between the pages of her insufferable sisters’ diaries. What she is not accustomed to is digging up bodies. Upon the five-hundredth anniversary of St. Tancred’s death, the English hamlet of Bishop’s Lacey is busily preparing to open its patron saint’s tomb. Nobody is more excited to peek inside the crypt than Flavia, yet what she finds will halt the proceedings dead in their tracks: the body of Mr. Collicutt, the church organist, his face grotesquely and inexplicably masked. Who held a vendetta against Mr. Collicutt, and why would they hide him in such a sacred resting place? The irrepressible Flavia decides to find out. And what she unearths will prove there’s never such thing as an open-and-shut case.
