This is a step down in the psycho factor from the other books Ive been reading. I found the writing a little slow and stilted.

Once again the conflict between the Traditionalists and Modernists in the Navajo Nation is at the center of Ella's world. Until she can reestablish balance in her life, her career as a tribal officer is at risk. The development of Rose, her mother, is at work in the course of the story, and with many twists and turns, resolution is attained. Another good read.
An Ella Clah mystery on the rez. Liked it better than some of the later ones which I read first. Gives the background of her past relationships which do play an important role in the books.
Enjoy knowing more about the culture.

recommend for those who love reading about mysteries set on the Navajo Reservation with all their customs and traditions and the contradictions that poses living in the 21st century. great characters, complex. good plot.
These are a pleasant fast read. I'm enjoying the series, particularly the ones that don't have the Skinwalkers in them. It might be good to know how one becomes that evil, but I'd rather not.

I love Ella Clah and this whole series, 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
