“A Time of Change” is a good murder mystery written by Aimėe and David Thurlo. The story takes place in southwest New Mexico. Jo Buck is an employee of The Outpost, owned by Tom Stuart. It is located just outside the Navajo reservation. Jo goes in early one morning at the request of her boss, Tom. She finds him dead in his home. The police come to investigate and call his death a suicide. However, Jo is not buying that. Tom’s son, Ben, is granted an emergency leave from the Army to come home for his father’s funeral. He does not accept the suicide cause of death either. Detective Katie Wells doesn’t seem to be investigating Tom’s death very vigorously which is not normal procedure. After being threatened, robbed at the trading post, and having an intruder in her home during the night, Jo finds herself a target. Because the police do not seem to be doing their job, it falls to Jo and Ben to do a little investigating. Things become more and more dangerous for all concerned and the mystery builds right up to the end of the novel.
I enjoyed reading this book because it was a thrilling mystery. I recommend it highly.
