Skullduggery at Quanah by Dennis Boyd Call

Meticulously researched and elegantly written… A gripping tale.

Set in the area around Quanah, Texas, Call’s excellent latest is an informed, moving portrait of one young man’s remarkable resilience and pride. On his eighteenth birthday, Jonathan is given responsibility to fulfill more than 150-years old vision that one of his ancestors saw. But his path is filled with unseen dangers and countless hurdles. Sprinkled with spiritual musings and illuminated by fascinating lore of the Comanche tribes, Call’s stream-of-consciousness narrative is layered with authenticity. The complex plot slowly reveals a conspiracy involving older generations. Chapters devoted to Jonathan’s search for answers alternate with scorching flashbacks to his family history. Throughout, Call skillfully infuses the local history of Quanah, the Medicine Mounds, and Comanche Chief Peta Nocona and his son Quanah Parker’s story into Jonathan’s ongoing quest. The poignant insights into honor, integrity, perseverance, life-purpose, and celebration of family will resonate with many. The lovers of sophisticated philosophical historical fiction will be delighted.
