Yellow Judge
I read this novel for my Honors Composition class in college and had the privilege of interfacing with the author throughout. The novel is a mystery, but not in the traditional sense. You are allowed intimate knowledge of the characters and there are no "suspects", as you know who the killer is by the second chapter. The real mystery takes place in the minds of the characters involved. Sundstrand really engages the reader by allowing them to live behind the eyes of the main character, experiencing his internal conflict and sharing some of the same emotional bonds with the other characters that he develops. I am an avid reader, but I find that I often have an aversion to any "forced reading" such as that which is assigned in a class. However, I enjoyed reading this book and had trouble resisting the urge to read too far ahead (and risk spoiling it for my classmates during discussion). This is definitely a good purchase for anyone, regardless of whether they enjoy mystery or not. It's a wonderful fit for any reader.

In the Mojave Desert, Bureau of Land Management Agent Frank Flynn investigates the murder of two poachers; near their corpses are dead wild burros that give the crime scene the appearance of someone who assassinated the two men for murdering the wild animals. Frank believes a radical animal rights group MDG led by Seth Parker killed the victims to end their shooting the burros as sport. Whereas he understands the extreme of the Parker crowd, FBI Agents Ellis and Novak assume Frank is an idiotic bureaucrat as they believe those opposed to hunting for sport are anti-American "animal rights terrorists."

Flynn thinks the opening of an affluent hunting club with imported prey will prove a fetching challenge to Parker. Although he emphasizes with the radical's goal, he abhors the means. Each takes steps closer to a final conflict as Parker, dying from an illness, plans to change the exotic hunting target to "The Most Dangerous Game"; collateral damage is acceptable.

With homage to the great Richard Connell short story, readers are hooked from the first carcass to the last in one of the most exciting thrillers of the winter. The story line is action-packed and never slows down. Parker and Flynn come across as genuine individuals making the anticipated High Noon that much better; while the FBI agents are a bit stereotyped. With a strong sense of place and purpose, SHADOWS IN DEATH is a great thriller that will send newcomers seeking Flynn's previous BLM tale (see SHADOW OF THE RAVEN).

I'm awed by Sunstrand's plotting skills. What kind of a devious mind comes up with all those intersecting webs and keeps all the balls in the air until the last resolution? Impressive! The Mohave desert settings are wonderful as are the characters. All the gun biz sounded authoritative and I realize that it matters, though it passed over my head, but the ramifications of shooting were fascinating, the shooting of defenseless animals, the shooting of defenseless people, the game shooting preserve (ugh - what an awful travesty of just about everything), the military shooting. the shooting in self defense... I'd not put all that together until now, but it really is a book about shooting. Well done.
