Indian Killer by Sherman Alexie


I read and enjoyed Alexie's The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian when it came out. I haven't stopped recommending it to young readers since and I pushed it into our Grade 8 curriculum in spite of resistance from certain traditional faculty types. Still, it isn't a book that I buy for my friends. Indian Killer is. Alexie has written an intricate yet fast paced thriller filled with unforgettably haunted characters, all set in late 90s Seattle.Click here for the Booklist review.
