There are two sides to Doss's writing, the mystery and the spirit world of characters in the book. The resolution of the mysteries run through both tracts. Charlie Moon carefully thinks through how ill deeds were done and arrives at a conclusion as to who is responsible. At the same time, retribution and justice occur in dramatic ways that provide strong satisfaction in a world where we are told by the media chaos reigns all around us.

This is an unusual series because it accepts the spirit world in the Christian and shaman sense as real and as having impact on the events of the characters in the book. The author's willingness to put aside the next for entirely explainable phenomena enriches the story in several ways: One is allowed to participate with the world of magic, subconscious, and spirit. Readers are allowed to believe there is more to life than what we can explain or diagnose. If the reader so chooses, acknowledging there is more to life than what we can analyze brings a measure of comfort in a tumultuous age where basing one's life on connection with something more profound is not encouraged. One can be allowed to believe, to hope, and yearn for a deeper connection.

I wouldn't recommend it to Sam Spade aficionados, probably, but I would recommend it to anyone that wants to look at life and death through different eyes.

"The Shaman Laughs" is the second in a series set on an Indian reservation in southwestern Colorado. The shaman is Daisy Perika, an aged Ute woman who lives in a trailer near a sacred canyon. The mystery involves ritual-sacrifice slayings, spilling first animal, then human, blood, and a controversy over the possible disposal of nuclear waste in the sacred canyon. As befits the title, this book is lightened by humorous episodes amid the grim goings-on. Characters include a nervous, prickly FBI special agent named J.E. Hoover; the shaman's malapropistic cousin Gorman; a crooked insurance man with political ambitions; an unfortunate Belgian poet and would-be Indian mystic; the pitikupf, a sort of Ute leprechaun who lives in the sacred canyon; and a collector of antiquities and data who says the ritual killer is an elusive individual he calls "Cain." Who is this devilish Cain? It's up to policemen Scott Parris and Charlie Moon to find out. I thought this book didn't quite measure up to the outstanding "The Shaman Sings" (a hard act to follow), but it's still a good, entertaining read, and I definitely plan to continue on with the series.

Doss writes books that are full of laughs (the asides the characters make are hilarious) and keep you wondering what will happen next. Characters are well fleshed out. The story pulls you in and keeps you moving right along. before you know it the kids are asking when we going to eat and you feel like you just sat down, time fly's with these books. Moon's Aunt Daisy is cantankerous and communicates with the spirits to give Moon and his Police Chief buddy the needed clues to solve these mysterious slayings

This is a good read. Not "edge of your chair" exciting, but I like the characters in the Charlie Moon books and they're all back. The story starts with a ritualistically mutilated prize bull and a proposed nuclear dump on the reservation and goes from there. The ending is a surprise and has a funny after story. I recommend the series. ????

James Doss writes a stirring tale of law enforcement on an Indian Reservation. Strange and unusual crimes and other events go on between the different tribes and supernatural events enhance the story. You will love Policeman Charlie Moon and his Shaman Aunt Daisy. There is also an ancient dwarf stirring the pot as well. I have the complete Charlie Moon series and often give copies as gifts to friends. Great read for young and old.

Very good characters. Good story. A lot of skimming through some bizarre dreams and visions especially at the beginning. I love the people and the stories but a bit much for me on such involved visions.

I chose the highest rating because once again the writer kept me guessing until the very end of the book. His skill with literary twists and turns never let me give up the chase for the identity of the killer. Too bad I have read all of Doss's books.
James D. Doss weaves the Greek legend of Polyphemus, the cannibalistic Cyclopes into the fabric of Ute culture with this second installment of the Shaman series, THE SHAMAN LAUGHS. The reader becomes immersed in the mysticism of the dark world of dreams as Charlie Moon, Scott Parris and Daisy Perika each travel uncharted paths.
The background includes animal mutilation, a nuclear waste dump, and a series a gamblers who risk their lives to win a deadly game. A fine addition to the annals of western/mystery fiction, when diabolical Aunt Daisy has the last laugh.
