    You have to pay attention all the way through, and be willing to sink into a convincingly recreated West at the very end of frontier days, and also frankly be fairly smart to follow a challenging plot and characters that reveal their stories and secrets bit by bit A jigsaw puzzle of a book, like all good investigations Highly recommended, but not a conventional or traditional

    This novel is based on a true crime story of the Old West In 1887 35 40 Chinese miners were massacred at Deep Creek in Hell s Canyon, Oregon along the Snake River Chinese were generally thought of as something less than human at the time, and Indians hardlyworthy of consideration Despite this attitude, Joe Vincent, a former judge of Lewiston in Idaho Territory was hired by the Sam Yup

    I don t usually like pre 20th century historical fiction but I saw the rave review in the Washington Post and decided to try this I finished it a week ago and am still thinking about it It s like I lived it And the fact that it s a dramatization of a real incident makes the novel all thecompelling, IMHO The writing is very clear not self consciously fancy , the present day parallels are all too

    Although the depictions of the murders are gruesome, this is a beautiful read The main characters especially Joe are well drawn and the story unfolds at a nice pace The back stories are revealed slowly, adding just a little bit of a thread to the overall weave of the plot, which I liked The novel also makes readers think about the treatment of those who are different Hostility against immigrants is noth

    I thought this historical novel would be a good choice for my book club because we live near where the event the Chinese massacre of 1887 took place Our group has enjoyed several historical fiction titles and this book got great reviews So much for trusting the reviews No one in the group myself included liked the book A few members didn t even bother to finish it The only positive thing about this choice was that it did

    Not an easy read, but an easy read would be impossible considering the subject matter On one hand you have the horrible fate of the Chinese miners, and on the other hand you ve got totally apathy about their fate from 99% of the characters in the book Only the four main characters and a handful of peripheral characters care at all, and they are doomed to be disappointed in the outcome That being said, the author did a great job o

    Crime, justice, family, long lost love this book has all the elements I like Deep Creek is a fast moving thriller about a terrible genocidal crime in 1887 Idaho But it ranks with any historical novel I have read The villains, male and female, are genuinely scary The trio of investigators, like their families and friends, are ordinary, likable, fallible people forced into heroism There s a touch of the supernatural, too, just enough for ee

    A fictionalized account of a very real, but very forgotten, massacre in the 19th century American West, Hand really the pen name of writers Will Howarth and Anne Matthews brings to life not only the hero, GAR veteran, ex county sheriff and all around good guy Judge J.K Vincent, but the nearly 40 Chinese miners so cruelly murdered because of greed It s rare, even in this day and age, to have a Western with a deeply Eastern so to speak heart.

    Historically very accurate unfortunately Characters all believable, action and plot cleanly constructed and exciting The sad part is that I can imagine this crime happening in our time too, given the current national mood American attitudes toward immigrants and strangers have not evolved much since 1887, and this intelligent novel throws light on why this might be.
