I am really enjoying this series of books. Although there is much less of the Navaho mysticism that occured in the first books, they are just good solid police detective novels in a location that I have fond memories of, the southwest.

In rereading this book in the series, I am again marveling at the Thurlos' complex plotting and incorporation of the Navajo beliefs and modern police work that result in a gripping and complex story. This is a really gripping and satisfying tale of good triumphing over evil.

I love Ella Clah, altho' it wouldn't be bad for her to get a love interest that lasted at some point--she is a great Native American and the mysteries are very good

Another great entry in this series

I gave this book five stars because it was suspenseful and a great read. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good mystery.

This series is changing as it evolves, since there are two authors it makes me wonder if they have altered who does what. This was an easier read and not so long either--and the action seemed to be less alarming and spaced more throughout the story. Also Ella's personal relationships are less awkward.

enjoyable - tony hillerman-type mystery with female native american detective operating on a reservation, good blend of the "old ways" and modern ways among residents

Ella Clah is recruited to help find a missing FBI agent who had interrupted a tribal sing just before disappearing. Of course there is much more to the story! Similar to Hillerman.

Good Ella Clah mystery as she must help find a missing FBI agent who interfered with tribal customs. Recommended to all mystery fans and especially to those who love Indian police mysteries.
