Reviews

"When it comes to stories about missing and murdered Indigenous women, Wren StrongEagle is the character we want to enact justice... With vivid prose and an intense page-turning plot, Bone Black examines police indifference, systemic racism, and the power of prayer and spiritual guidance, and reminds us that the crisis in Canada of missing and murdered Indigenous women continues to need our attention."
