Narrator Isabella Star LaBlanc, who is Sisseton Wahpeton Dakota, was wisely tapped to portray the enigmatic Cash Blackbear, who is now investigating the murder of an unidentified Ojibwe woman whose body washed ashore with recent flood waters. The lack of affect in LaBlanc's performance is calmly hypnotic and captures Blackbear's sense of belonging to neither the white nor the tribal communities that form the backdrop for this intriguing rural mystery. LaBlanc helps develop the thick air of creepiness that descends when Blackbear suspects her case is connected to a malevolent white preacher who is involved with stealing Native babies. Although LaBlanc misses the mark when voicing the preacher's wife, the terrifying conclusion is sure to have listeners on the edge of their seats.
