"Hearts of the Missing," Carol Potenza's debut novel, is a yarn wrapped in Pueblo Indian mythology, forensic evidence, ancient rituals, DNA tests, evil spirits, greed and violence. The story involves so many characters and such a plethora of twists and turns that readers may find it difficult to keep track unless they pay close attention and maybe even take notes along the way.Potenza does a decent job of evoking the reservation's stark natural landscape, but she peppers her narrative with granular, often irrelevant, physical descriptions of her characters, including many minor ones.All in all, "Hearts of the Missing" demonstrates enough promise to justify Potenza's plan for a series of Nicky Matthews novels.Carol Potenza's "Hearts of the Missing" is published by Minotaur.
