When Joe Billie stops a grave robber from unearthing a Seminole Indian burial site, Joe becomes the prime suspect in a bizarre murder. For Sean O'Brien, the first challenge is getting Joe to talk about the circumstances surrounding the killing. As Joe faces first-degree murder charges, O'Brien thinks he knows why his old friend is evasive. But proving it will send O'Brien deep into Seminole history to uncover a greedy killer hell-bent on creating a modern-day Trail of Tears.

"Tom Lowe writes a spiraling sequence of events..."
...That you would never think could come together but somehow he manages to wrap everything up at the end to make one heck of a really good and satisfying book.
In this book Sean O'Brien's friend (a Native American) Joe Billie is accused of murdering a man he has already had a confrontation with in the past. He's arrested and Sean sets about finding the real story and person who is responsible for committing the crime.
The story then becomes very convoluted at this point and many more characters come in to play, including some from Sean's past as a homicide detective in Miami.
As the story unfolds so many motives also are revealed and debunked. Because many of the characters are Native American, their laws also have an impact on the investigation.
The local police do not appreciate Sen's interference and block his efforts at every turn with threats of their own.
This book has a realistic and satisfying conclusion.
Michael David Axtell narrates this as well as the other books in this series. He does an EXCELLENT job.

"O'Brian At His Best"
Another great entry from Tom Lowe in Sean O'Brian series with all the regulars including little Max the dachshund. This is the first time I have listened vs reading and found the narration to be excellent.
"My first Sean O'Brien series novel by Tom Lowe"
I've just purchased the other 7 novels in this mystery/thriller series. Audible listener Shelley recently reviewed this novel. She is the best person to follow for those who love the mystery/thriller genre. I urge other mystery/thriller fans to read her review of A Murder of Crows and to follow her.
