Hating Twist Phelan ought to be easy-endurance athlete, lawyer, writer, catchy name, and a pretty face to top it all off-but you just can't dislike anyone who writes this well. Spurred Ambition is the first Pinnacle Peak mystery I've read, but now I want to read the first two! So much takes place in this novel, but all the ends are tied up nicely by the last page, except for one little tiny piece of string that will lead, hopefully, into the next book! Keep writing, Twist!!

Twist Phelan began publishing mystery novels after retiring in her early .

She has set several books in the fictional resort town of Pinnacle Peak, Arizona, with each featuring a different sport; Phelan herself is an endurance athlete, having participated in triathlons, rock-climbing, canoeing, and other sports. As narrated in Spurred Ambition, that future includes doing legal work for an Indian tribe and becoming attracted to one of the tribal leaders, Tony Soto, whom Hannah first encounters while rock climbing.

After her first attempt at breaking and entering, business attorney Hannah Dain heads for the cliffs of Pinnacle Peak, Arizona to rock climband winds up in the middle of an anti-Indian protest turned violent. She escapes, but makes an enemy. To make things worse, a shocking family revelation sends her on a hunt for someone who has been gone for almost thirty years. Then Hannah meets Tony Soto. Hannah is beguiled by the Native American/Latino who is passionately committed to the betterment of his tribe. Is Tony an innocent victim, or is he part of an elaborate financial hoax where more than money is at stake? Can Hannah unravel the scheme and find the key to the mystery of her past? This is the action-packed sequel to Family Claims.
  • After learning that her mother committed malpractice to win a case and had an affair that resulted in Hannah Dain being born the attorney leaves Richard Dain's law practice to look for her biological father. This proves hard to do since all the records were sealed by court order on behest of Richard, the man she thought was her father who preferred her younger sister.

    She accepts a short term job with the Tohono O'odham Indian tribe to put together a real estate private placement. The day before she starts work, she goes rock climbing on the reservations and runs into difficulties. She is rescued by Tony Soto, a Native American/Latino who turns out to be her boss. While on a tour of the reservation, three men wearing blue bandanas so Hannah doesn't see their faces kidnap Tony. The police search for him while she finds his book with two sets of numbers for the real estate deal. When Tony escapes more violence occur starting with the death of the tribal chief. Hannah begins to wonder just how innocent Tony is and if his zeal for the betterment of the tribe is real or a clever fraud.

    Fans of Tony Hillerman will rejoice now that Twist Phelan joins the sub-genre scene. Readers don't have to be financial analysts to get the gist of the security scam and in fact learn more about fiscal misconduct then can be found in a SEC case. There are three murders, one kidnapping, evidences of money manipulations that Hannah thinks are linked together and she sets out to prove it. This is a very entertaining and action filled amateur sleuth tale that brings to life the Indian reservation on the Arizona desert.
