Sandi Ault’s first Jamaica Wild mystery, Wild Indigo, was released in January 1, 2007, followed quickly by Wild Inferno in 2008, and Wild Sorrow, released in March 2009. Jamaica, who begins the series as a Bureau of Land Management agent in New Mexico, is a student of Pueblo culture, an interest that often gets her in trouble with tribal authorities as well as her BLM boss.
The second book in the series allows Jamaica and her wolf, Mountain, to get up close and personal with a forest fire. Since author Sandi Ault is a fire information officer, she writes from firsthand experience. I recently finished reading Wild Inferno. The fire scenes are intense, and the book was hard to put down. I’m looking forward to Wild Sorrow.
Not only a fine writer with extensive knowledge of the land and culture in which her protagonist performs her duties, Sandi is also an entertaining speaker and workshop instructor. The interesting and poignant tale of the original and real wolf, Mountain, can be found at Sandi’s website.
