Description

Rita Todacheene is a forensic photographer working for the Albuquerque police force. Her excellent skills have cracked many cases—she is almost supernaturally good at capturing details. In fact, Rita has been hiding a secret: she sees the ghosts of crime victims who point her toward the clues that other investigators overlook. As a lone portal to the living world for traumatized spirits, Rita is terrorized by nagging ghosts who won't let her sleep and who sabotage her personal life. Her taboo and psychologically harrowing ability was what drove her away from the Navajo reservation, where she was raised by her grandmother. It has isolated her from friends and gotten her in trouble with the law. And now it might be what gets her killed. When Rita is sent to photograph the scene of a supposed suicide on a highway overpass, the furious, discombobulated ghost of the victim—who insists she was murdered—latches onto Rita, forcing her on a quest for revenge against her killers, and Rita finds herself in the crosshairs of one of Albuquerque's most dangerous cartels. Written in sparkling, gruesome prose, Shutter is an explosive debut from one of crime fiction's most powerful new voices.

        Rita Todacheene, the narrator of Emerson’s strong debut, has excelled at her job with the Albuquerque (N.Mex.) PD’s Crime Scene Specialist Unit for the past five years, exposing valuable clues through her meticulous photography. Flair and technical expertise aside, much of her success is due to a unique ability to communicate with the ghosts of crime victims. It’s a gift she discovered during childhood, but these unusual powers come at a price—her peculiar behavior and obsession with “imaginary friends” alienated her from her classmates and drove her out of her Navajo community. Ever since, damaged spirits, desperate for her help, plague her, pushing her to the edge of sanity and making her friends and colleagues question her psychological competence. After photographing a grisly highway suicide, she’s coerced into investigating members of the police force with connections to the victim and major players in a Mexican drug cartel, ultimately drawing her into a perilous quest for truth and justice. Rich, expressive prose matches the suspenseful storytelling. Only the predictable finale disappoints. Crime fiction fans will relish this keenly balanced paranormal page-turner and piquant coming-of-age yarn.

      • content: Oglala Lakota/Mohawk actor Charley Flyte performs this supernatural mystery novel with the perfect balance of intrigue and suspense. Rita Todacheene is one of the best forensic photographers in the Albuquerque Police Department in New Mexico. But she has a secret: She can see ghosts, an ability that helps her gain unique insights into her cases. Flyte's narration captures Rita's horror as she's terrorized by a woman's spirit who says she was killed by a mysterious man she can't remember. Flyte creates emotional intimacy between the characters, especially when we see Rita in flashbacks as a child, living with her grandmother on the Navajo reservation.

        December 1, 2022

        Emerson's debut, narrated by Oglala Lakota/Mohawk actor Charley Flyte, features Rita Todacheene, a Din� woman living and working in Albuquerque, NM, as a forensic photographer. Rita is gifted at her job, but she has been hiding an ability that aids her work-- she can see ghosts. One such ghost, Erma, was thought to have died by suicide, but she insists that she was murdered and wants Rita to solve the case. In her search, Rita comes across ghosts, murderers, and corrupt police officers. While the paranormal plot is occasionally wearying, the descriptions of the crime scenes and investigatory process is riveting. Listeners will appreciate Flyte's sensitive narration of flashbacks, depicting Rita's experiences growing up with her grandmother on reservation. He believably brings out Rita's stress and exhaustion, although his depiction of other characters is more one-dimensional. VERDICT Emerson, herself a Din� writer and filmmaker, delivers an intriguing supernatural thriller. Recommend to those seeking thrillers written by Indigenous authors such as David Heska Wanbli Weiden, Carol LaFavor, and Marcie Rendon.--Danielle Arpin
