"Alafair's sixth (The Sky Took Him, 2009, etc.) will appeal to history buffs and Hillerman aficionados." -"Kirkus Review for Crying Blood"
"Powerful as a blue norther sweeping across the Creek Nation, Crying Blood is a gripping entry in Donis Casey's superb Alafair Tucker series. Casey depicts family ties that uplift and support and family ties broken by anger in a poignant, lyrical, authentic novel of early day Oklahoma.""--Carolyn Hart"
