A note from Sandi about WILD PENANCE:  This latest release is a spine-tingling tale of a diabolical murder and the clandestine, ancient brotherhood that still practices ritual flagellation (and some say crucifixion as well) in remote villages in northern New Mexico. WILD PENANCE is a prequel to the other stories in the WILD Mystery Series, and even as its riveting pace sweeps you to the edge of your seat, you'll get a taste of the beginnings of the key relationships Jamaica carries into the other books in the series: her first meeting with Tecolote, her first medicine assignment from Momma Anna, and her budding romance with Kerry. This tale involves a dark and sinister plot, a secret sect, iconic sacred symbols and sacraments, and a ritual killing that echoes a ceremonial re-enactment meant to be a religious celebration. It's a ripping good story about a real and secret organization and the unique and strange places, people, and culture that make New Mexico a very special place. I know you're going to love it!
