A serial murderer called the Indian Killer is terrorizing Seattle,
hunting, scalping, and slaughtering white men. Motivated by rage and seeking
retribution for his people’s violent history, his grizzly MO and skillful
elusiveness both paralyze the city with fear and prompt an uprising of racial
brutality. As the city consumes itself in a nightmare frenzy, a possible
suspect emerges - John Smith. As an Indian raised by white people, John is lost
between cultures. He fights for a sense of belonging that may never be his, but
has his alienation made him angry enough to kill? Alexie traces John Smith’s
rage with scathing wit and masterful suspense in this gritty, smart, and
racially charged thriller.
In the electrifying Indian Killer, a national bestseller and New
York Times Notable Book, Sherman Alexie delivers both a scintillating thriller
and a searing parable of race, identity, and violence.
