Loki Redmond swore she’d never return to the reservation, but two missing hunters and the ancient Choctaw myth of Nalusa Falaya take her and her brother, Dadron, on a dangerous trek through the wilderness.
Meanwhile, her partner Jake Savior, heads to Tunica, Mississippi, to investigate the second mass killing by a Choctaw police officer.
Are the cases connected?
The only thing they know for sure is innocent blood has been shed, and unless they can find the source more are going to die.
This is book 2 in the series. I haven’t read book 1, The Forgotten, and while I did pick up what the characters are about I think I would have enjoyed it more if I had read book 1 so would recommend that they are read in sequence.
The story revolves around the Choctaw Indian community. I found learning about the Choctaw’s and their culture and beliefs very interesting and the Author has definitely done her research to a high level as this knowledge comes across very well as the story develops.
Loki is Choctaw and escaped the reservation many years ago with her brothers. She also rescued and adopted a young girl with a baby. She is a very caring ‘Mamma Bear’ type character that you have to love.
When Choctaw police officers start killing their colleagues before committing suicide everyone is shocked these are family men and conscientious officers and nobody knows what is going on. Jake and Loki get tangled up in this at the same time as Lok’s past comes back to haunt her and her brothers.
This is an intriguing book that moves along at a fairly fast pace with many twists and turns along the way. There is an element of the paranormal along with drugs, murder, corruption and many other vices to throw into the mix. A very good read.

Linda S. Prather is the NY Times and USA Today Bestselling author of 8 novels including two legal thrillers, a paranormal FBI series, one romance, and her current series involving Loki Redmond, a Choctaw private investigator and Jake Savior, a former police officer. Linda lives in Lexington, Kentucky with her husband and grandchild, along with the “king” of the house, a Shitzu name Popcorn. Her latest release, Innocent Blood is her second in the Loki Redmond/Jake Savior series. In Linda’s own words: “This book is my favorite so far. My grandfather was a full-blooded Native American, and my mother half Native American. Prior to my marriage and children I studied Shamanism and developed a true love for nature. Studying the Choctaw history, customs, myths and religions was fascinating. Taking the facts I learned and weaving them into Loki’s story and her investigation into the disappearance of two hunters on the reservation was an emotional roller coaster for me. I found myself crying quite often.”
