Check out this A Thirst for Murder book review by Mark I. Pinsky

"Thirst is a political mystery in the best sense of the genre, as the struggle quickly turns into one of cronyism and corruption—and of multiple murders.

This is Koons’ second mystery featuring Taos County Sheriff Ulysses Walker. The series debut, Murder at Sleeping Tiger, took place in one of Taos County’s numerous Zen retreats, and earned her the 2023 Next Generation Indie Award for Best Mystery.

Still, it takes considerable courage to venture into literary and geographical territory so long dominated by Tony Hillerman’s Navajo Nation Police officers Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee.

But Koons, a retired psychotherapist, poet, and longtime resident of the village of Dixon, New Mexico, is up to the effort. She knows the territory, both geographically and psychologically."
