Matowak Woman who Cries by Joylene Nowell Butler is a murder mystery that will keep you glued to its pages with a good plot and inviting deliverance. It moves nicely to get to the twist at the end.
A very important retired lawyer and diplomat is killed in his house after breakfast, and his wife is the main suspect.
There is a lot of racism going on in this book, related to the Native American characters and those who think white people are better than they are. The policeman in charge of the crime is a Native American and one of his suspects is his white boss’ native American woman that lives with him.
As in all good murder mysteries, this book has secrets, twists, abuse, a gun and a body. I enjoyed the theme and the characters, what I didn’t like at all was the unnecessary swear words. They seemed to be used at random and did not necessarily feel natural to the conversation. I knocked one point off the rating for making me listen to them. I recommend it to adults who like murder mysteries and don’t mind swearing in their reading.
