I am really disappointed that this book didn't work out for me. I couldn't finish it. I lost interest about halfway through, flipped to the back to see how it ends, and decided against finishing. Maybe I can try reading it again another time.

The story is about 4 Native American men from the Blackfeet reservation, Lewis, Cass, Gabe, and Ricky. About 10 years ago they went hunting on the Elder's designated land and killed 9 elk. They were caught and consequences ensued. The consequences, however, were not enough. Elk Head Woman appears nearly a decade later and is set in extracting her revenge.

The pace of "The Only Good Indians" is slow but intense. There's gore, lots and lots of gore (reader beware), but it didn't really feel scary to me (maybe if I had continued reading it would eventually feel scary). The story can be a bit confusing at times but it is well written. I think other readers would enjoy this if they can stomach the gore.
