Product description

Review

The Return of the Raven Mocker (An Alafair Tucker Mystery) by Donis Casey is a compelling book. I gave it five stars because the characters came to life and kept my attention.... I had not read Donis Casey's books before and am thrilled to discover an established series. I added all of them to my wish list.--Carolyn Injoy-Hertz "NetGalley"

The Return of the Raven Mocker is well written tale. I found it immensely enjoyable and I'm sure you will too. Read the entire series!!! I highly recommend The Return of the Raven Mocker.--Kathryn Poulin "MysteriesEtc"

Anyone not knowing the name Alafair Tucker of Boynton, Oklahoma has missed some very delightful writing. Alafair is a woman of strong character. She has to be as she is the mother of ten children most of them grown by now in this ninth of her series.... I have enjoyed this series very much. On opening the first page, I feel myself being pulled into the Tucker family - happily so.--Mary Ann Smyth "Bookloons"

Grimly realistic, this unusual mystery - ninth in the series - set during the flu pandemic of 1918, graphically portrays, from a caregiver's perspective, nursing the desperately ill and witnessing horrible deaths, while also worrying about loved ones fighting overseas. Vividly rendered and psychologically astute, this somewhat transparent puzzler provides an unusually immersive perspective on familiar historical territory.--Jen Baker "Booklist"

The mystery comes in second (or maybe third) to history lessons and paeans to traditional American values in this folksy tale of small towns and big hearts.-- "Kirkus Reviews"

What a great time to commit murder. During a major pandemic. Who's to know? Who's going to even notice? A delightful story. One not to be missed if you are fascinated by the Spanish flu outbreak of 1918.--Cherei McCarter "Goodreads" --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Donis Casey is the author of five Alafair Tucker Mysteries, The Old Buzzard Had It Coming, Hornswoggled, The Drop Edge of Yonder, The Sky Took Him, and Crying Blood (Feb. 2011). She has twice won the Arizona Book Award for her series, and been a finalist for the Willa Award and the Oklahoma Book Award. Her first novel, The Old Buzzard Had It Coming, was named an Oklahoma Centennial Book.

While researching her own genealogy, she discovered so many ripping tales of settlers, soldiers, cowboys and Indians, murder, dastardly deeds, and general mayhem that she said to herself, “Donis, you have enough material here for ten books.” The resulting historical mystery series, set in Oklahoma in the booming 1910s, features the sleuthing mother of ten children.

Donis is a former teacher, academic librarian, and entrepreneur. She was born and raised in Tulse, Oklahoma, and now lives in Tempe, AZ, with her husband, poet Donald Koozer.
