Rabbit Moon by Jan D Payne
They say you can’t go back home…but Marin Sinclair doesn’t think answering a plea for help from a dying friend is something that will turn out to be life-threatening. Dinetah, the Navajo Nation and the place she grew to adulthood, holds some dark memories she’d rather not revisit—like betrayal, suicide, and heartbreak—but what about her life then would make someone want to kill her?
Sgt. Justin Blue Eyes of the Navajo Nation police force shares a connection with Marin from the past, and he has the same question plus a few of his own…like why the Nuclear Regulatory Commission would sent agents to investigate the abandoned uranium mines on reservation land.
For answers, he needs to find Marin Sinclair, and it looks like she’s gone off the grid—on her own in the Lukachukai mountains with a killer close behind.
Rabbit Moon is currently available to read on Kindle Unlimited, and has recently been published as an audiobook on Amazon as well! Book Two in the Navajoland Marin Sinclair series is due to be published soon—thanks for your patience!

Jan Caudle Payne is from Sanostee, New Mexico, near the Four Corners area of the Navajo Nation, daughter of a BIA school-teacher and a Texas cowboy, and great-great grand-daughter of a Comanche captive. She is a graduate of Shiprock High School, the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, and Regent College in Vancouver, British Columbia, and is a member of the Western Writers of America organization. She has lived in Arizona, in Mexico, and on the Pribilof Islands in Alaska, and currently lives in northern Minnesota with her husband, Jon, and three big dogs—Kaibab, Rudi, and Orrin. Together they enjoy canoe-camping in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area and visits to hike or star-gaze near the north rim of the Grand Canyon or in the Black Hills of South Dakota. A life-long reader of westerns and mystery novels, she hopes to reflect in her Navajoland suspense series her own voice of memory—with respect for the country, the culture, and the People of Dintetah.
