Navajo Police Special Investigator Ella Clah must draw on all her analytical skills as she confronts an escalation of gang violence on the reservation, the murder of her best friend during a burglary, and her mother's near-fatal encounter with a drunk driver

Blackwell North Amer
Once an FBI agent, Ella Clah is now a Special Investigator with the native police force. She walks a tightrope between the Navajo and white worlds, fully accepted by neither but needed by both. Ella's brother, Clifford, a hataalii or medicine man, says that her investigative skills are a gift from the spirits who guard and guide the Navajo, but Ella insists it's her FBI training that has honed her instincts.
Gang violence and gang warfare, alcoholism and drunk driving, even race riots - the Navajo are in turmoil. The cops are spread thin throughout the vast reservation, trying to monitor all the trouble spots.
They all rally to Ella's side, however, when her mother, Rose, is seriously injured in a car accident. When the offending driver turns out to be falling-down drunk - and a repeat offender - Ella has a hard time reining in her temper. Rose's recovery is slow and complicated by the feeling that her time in this world is over.
Then Ella receives word that Lisa Aspass, the fiancee of her old friend Wilson Joe, has been murdered, apparently in a gang-related robbery. Ella is shocked to discover signs of skinwalker activity in Lisa's home - was her friend's fiancee a Navajo witch?
Ella must protect her mother, solve Lisa's murder, and stop Navajo teenagers from trying to kill one another, all while trying to find and fight her oldest enemies.
