4.5 *s. The Only Good Indians is part social commentary on Indigenous life and experiences and part gasp-inducing horror. Lewis and 3 of his friends are haunted by an elk hunting trip gone wrong that occurred 10 years before when they teenagers. I alternated listening to the audio and reading this book. At first I found the transitions from chapter to chapter a bit confusing, but this resolved once I knew the characters. This book had one of the most horror inducing moments that I've experienced. I also loved learning about some indigenous traditions. The whole idea of being literally haunted by actions from your youth is such a great premise.

Immediately after finishing this book, I was fortunate enough to listen to Stephen Graham Jones at a virtual Strand author event. I promptly ordered a copy of this book for my shelf and another one of his novellas. Count me in as a fan!
