Lakota FBI Agent Manny Tanno in Spirit Road Mystery Series

Manny Tanno left the Pine Ridge Reservation years ago, leaving behind memories and the heartache from his older brother, Reuben’s incarceration. Tanno could never understand why Reuben killed Billy Two Moons, but his brother’s confession had ended Tanno’s worship of his older brother which made it easier to leave and not look back. Tanno thought he would never return to Pine Ridge but another murder has brought him home.
