Former FBI agent Ella Clah, now a Special Investigator with the Navajo Tribal Police, investigates a series of murders targeting the Navajo's "living treasures," individuals who possess and teach the tribe's cultural and religious wisdom

Blackwell North Amer
Solving her father's murder taught FBI agent Ella Clah a great deal about herself and her people, the Dineh, or Navajo. She isn't sure she believes everything she experienced while tracking down the Navajo witches who killed her father, but she now knows that there is more to the world than can be explained by her FBI training and forensic science.
Now a special investigator with the tribal police on the Navajo Reservation, Ella is stunned when one of the Dineh's "living treasures" - people who hold and teach the cultural and religious wisdom of the tribe - is brutally murdered. Ritual signs at the murder scene seem to point to skinwalkers, or Navajo witches, but Ella thought they'd all been killed or captured.
Ella has too many suspects and too few clues, even after other old wise ones are found dead. Despite help from the Navajo pathologist, Carolyn Roanhorse, a woman as much an outsider within the tribe as Ella herself, Ella makes little progress. To make matters worse, Peterson Yazzie, head of the skinwalkers, has escaped, and once again stalks the Clah family.
Illusion and ritual duel with police procedures and science as Ella strives to find out who is stealing the mind and heart of the Navajo people.
