|What would you do if a trickster demi-god came into your
deliberately settled, bland, banal life and turned it upside down? This is what happens to
Samuel Hunter when the Indian god Coyote appears in Santa Barbara, California.
Fortunately, Samuel started life as Sam Hunts Alone, a Crow Indian in Montana, so he has
some idea of what Coyote is and wants except he doesnt understand why he
should be doing what Coyote wants. Add in a very new girlfriend, bikers, drugs and a
demi-god who has no experience of the modern world and very odd things happen.
enjoyed this book a lot I find it hard to categorise, as it is neither properly humour or
action thriller but sits in the little used writers territory between. For the story
told, which has a vicarious, quixotic demi-god as one of its central characters, the style
sits surprisingly well.
Mr Moore has successfully counted coup on me as a reader with this book. I look forward
to further volumes by him.
