The Mystery debut from acclaimed Western and Frontier Fiction author Bill Brooks!

She is only known as the girl with the flamenco tattoo and she is very dead. Who is she, where’d she come from, and how did she end up fully clothed on the shore of a mountain lake? Such are the questions that a small town sheriff with higher aspirations must try and solve when he has no experience whatsoever with murder or anything close to it. And yet if his political dreams are to be realized, he must solve the crime that has a ripple effect on a whole lot of locals. As with any town, large or small, there are people with dark secrets including everything from a coroner with a former drug habit, to a cop who once shot a girl, a wife’s dalliances, and the town’s most powerful man, who would like the whole investigation to go away.



The Girl with the Flamenco Tattoo by Bill Brooks is a rollicking ride, a mix of mystery and murder …told in an absorbing first person narrative …set against the backdrop of a small town. Bill Brooks has a gift for narrative and his unique phraseology won’t go unnoticed. This is a gripping story, suspenseful and utterly engaging. —Readers’ Favorite

“Unlike many of his peers, Brooks is equally good with human relationships on the
frontier, their inevitable transience as well as their embattled passion. Fine work in the
western tradition. ” —Bill Ott, Booklist

“Brooks’ novel deserves to be mentioned with such western classics as Shane, Hombre,
and The Virginian. He captures the everyday humanity behind the legends while
simultaneously adding to the myth of the great golden West. This is one of the most
inventive, moving, and memorable western novels in many years.”Booklist *starred review* on The Stone Garden

    The Girl with the Flamenco Tattoo by Bill Brooks is a rollicking ride, a mix of mystery and murder. A girl with no name has been found on the shore of a mountain lake. She is known simply as “the girl with the flamenco tattoo,” and no one knows how she got to be where her body was found fully clothed. Now, the sheriff must find the killer and solve the mystery if he hopes to advance his political career. The reader is thrust into an action-packed, intriguing story that investigates the death of a young girl, but there is more to this than the investigation — from the weird characters like the sheriff with very little experience, the wife of the most powerful man in the city having dalliances, and cops with dirty secrets to the dynamics of life in a small town setting. But can they solve the mystery of the murder and why would the most powerful man in the city want the investigation to stop?

    The story starts on a very quirky note: “I was negotiating my release from a married woman when the call about the dead girl came in.” And the reader immediately gets hooked by the unusual situation in which the protagonist finds himself. Billy Ray is a character that readers will love. I couldn’t help enjoying his opinion, whether describing the sheriff’s viewpoint or wondering what he should be doing in a park filled with pimps, and drug peddlers, and homeless teenagers. There is a tinge of humor that makes the reading experience a fantastic one. The Girl with the Flamenco Tattoo is told in an absorbing first person narrative; a story set against the backdrop of a small town. It reads so well that readers will feel as though they are part of the story. Bill Brooks has a gift for narrative and his unique phraseology won’t go unnoticed. This is a gripping story, suspenseful and utterly engaging.
