"Former Navajo Police officer Harry Ute's body is found in an isolated part of the Navajo Reservation, rumored to be skinwalker country. This makes Navajo Police Special Investigator Ella Clah's job much harder--no one wants to speak to her for fear of incurring the wrath of the Navajo witches. Harry's latest P.I. case involves tracking down property stolen from the county. This leads Ella to work with county Detective Dan Nez. Ella doesn't trust Nez but can't deny her growing attraction to him. The murder and thefts turn out to be the tip of an iceberg. Previously unknown Navajo artifacts are being offered for sale, indicating a hidden dig somewhere on the Reservation. As danger mounts, Ella worries that her latest case might also become her last"-- Provided by publisher.

Had I not read several books written by Tony Hillerman prior to this one I would have enjoyed it more. That being said, it comes off as an imitation of the author who for all practical purposes invented this genre.

I love this Ella Clah series! This book is right up there with its suspense, complex interrelated stories, and looks into the lives of modern, traditional and modernist Navajos. The ending of this mystery leaves me wondering about the future of all the characters I've grown to love like my own family. Hmmm... stay tuned.
