Sherman Alexie Synopses: Reservation Blues is a standalone novel by Sherman Alexie. Legendary blues guitarist Robert Johnson appears on an Indian reservation to lead a Catholic rock band.

Indian Killer by Sherman Alexie is a standalone title. A serial murderer called the Indian Killer is terrorizing Seattle, hunting, scalping, and slaughtering white men. Motivated by rage and seeking retribution for his people’s violent history, his grizzly MO and skillful elusiveness both paralyze the city with fear and prompt an uprising of racial brutality. Out of the chaos emerges John Smith. Born to Indians but raised by white parents, Smith yearns for his lost heritage. As his embitterment with his dual life increases, Smith falls deeper into vengeful madness and quickly surfaces as the prime suspect. Tensions mount, and while Smith battles to allay the anger that engulfs him, the Indian Killer claims another life.
