His life depends on i. .d me in pale curtains that drew and opened at the whim of the southwest wind. Brief gusts snaked along the forest floor and crawled up my pant legs, making me shiver. I was wearing a set of Griff’s snow camouflage. I was as close to invisible as you can become in this world and yet I felt naked, exposed, though not as starkly as Cantrell.

Mark T. Sullivan's "The Purification Ceremony" focuses on Diana Jackman, a woman of Native American ancestry who has separated from her husband and family in the wake of her estranged father's suicide. His death re-awakens long-suppressed emotional issues for Diana, and, in a bid to reconnect with her family's love, respect and near-worship of nature and the outdoors, she books a deer hunting trip in British Columbia.

Things almost immediately go wrong, however, as Diana stumbles across the dead and ritually mutilated body of one of the guides, and more violent death follows. Not only is there a madman stalking the hunting party, the group is snowed in, and the killer has cut of communication with the outside world. Diana must use everything her father taught her to survive and protect the others, but she faces a vengeful murderer whose near-supernatural ability to track and hunt and kill is like nothing she's ever encountered.

"The Purification Ceremony" has a great set-up, a protagonist with an engaging and captivating backstory, and an author with a gift for language. There are moments of true tension, but also, unfortunatley, too much reliance on mysticism, some points in the story that should have been better, and a twist reveal of the villain that is plausible, but which somehow struck me as too pat.

I wanted to love "The Purification Ceremony" - the first two-thirds are genuinely excellent - but I only ended up liking it.

The story is fairly interesting, but not realistic. It is full of typos in the first third of the novel. In addition the author does not seem to have decided whether the handyman's name is Grover, Graver or Grawer!

Mr Sullivan has a touch of the Invisible World in his heart. My ancestors could tell you that. His story has gritty characters and a bold plot. Dream on and write more books about what most cannot see.

All in all not a bad book. Addressed issues about hunting, the way it is perceived by modern society, the way so much of hunting seems to be about men out to prove something, and how a woman of Native American ancestry moved through this group and managed to (without the anatomy) solve the crime, deal with the issue, and come out with a better understanding of herself and the past.
