I didn't realize it while writing it, but reading my first draft of my mystery (whydunnit) novel I see that I don't portray women very well. My protagonist's wife is dead. He goes to his old home town and stays with an old acquaintance and the first night she lets him into her bed. He finds out that the 40 year old murder he is investigating was over a First Nations woman who was an easy lay for itinerant white guys passing through town. Continuing his investigation he meets a younger First Nations woman in a bar and she tries to seduce him. The only other women in the story are old and white.
