This gives the writer an opporutnity to explore the social stresses around native American cultures of the Pacific Northwest, and examine both the cultural heritage and hypocritical attitudes surrounding the mixing of heritages.
I was amused by the references to Nebraska in the end story. We i Miss Zukas once again is thrown into a temporary assignment that turns out to have a murder involved.

Jan 25, RuthG rated it liked it Shelves: mysteries. The mystery was very good and I had to wait until the denouement to find out who the killer was. That is something I like in a book. However, I did have a problem with Miss Zukas. She was just too precise and controlled for me to find her even possible, let alone probable as a person.
She came off as smug and that's not an endearing quality in a character or a living person.

The information about the Native Americans in the northwest was definitely interesting so were the descriptions of the dioramas. That alone made the book well worth reading. Jan 26, Kyrie rated it really liked it Shelves: mystery. Okay, it's light reading, but I really like Miss Zukas. I didn't figure out the mystery. I was so far off track as to be in another book.
I also liked that Miss Zukas actually shared emotions in this book. I'm saying it badly - she's shown them before, but I feel like the human side is coming out more and more.
