Reviews of A Rendezvous to Die For (2011)
Review by michael a draper (2012-11-09)
Photographer Cassie Cassidy goes to a rendezvous where she hopes to get photos of American Indians in action.
Unfortunately, she meets a reporter who gets into an argument with her. She had proven that a photo he used in an article, had been doctored.
Soon after, Cassie comes upon a body of a person who had been killed with a tommyhawk.
When she gives her statement to the deputy sheriff, she can tell by the man's aggressive behavior that he sees her as a suspect in the murder.
The writing is colorful as we learn of Indian traditions and the realism that re-enactors feel about the rendezvous and their outfits.
Cass has few friends who take her side and we follow her attempt to prove her innocence.
The setting is picturesque and I compliment the author on an original story with historical images. In addition, the author shows a female character in a male dominated society who stands up for her rights and bravely fights to prove she isn't a killer.
