Baker & Taylor
A new mystery series marks the debut of Navajo FBI agent Ella Clah, who returns to the reservation to investigate the murder of her father, a minister caught in the struggle between Native American tradition and modern beliefs.

Blackwell North Amer
Promising young FBI agent Ella Clah is shocked to learn that her father has been ritually murdered - and that her brother, a tribal medicine man, is the prime suspect. The elder Clah believed that the Dineh, the Navajo, needed to take advantage of more of the white man's ways to survive in the modern world. He was vigorously opposed by those who believed that only by embracing traditional ways and beliefs could the tribe stay strong and vital.
But that opposition had never been violent before - even the most heated arguments between father and son had never come to blows - and Ella finds it impossible to believe that her gentle brother, who strives to protect and heal those around him, could have killed their father. Breaking FBI rules and jeopardizing her entire career, Ella returns to the reservation to investigate.
