Former Navajo Police officer Harry Ute's body is found in an isolated part of the Navajo Reservation, rumoured 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 artefacts 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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Praise for the Ella Clah series:

"An outstanding series."--"Booklist" (starred review)

"Aimee and David Thurlo have a robust regional series going with Ella Clah, a Navajo Tribal Police officer whose investigations usually involve a standoff between tribal tradition and modern ways."

--"The New York Times Book Review
"

"Navajo police sort through a tangle of lies and loyalties while respecting the values of traditionalists and adapting to modern intrusions."

--"Publishers Weekly" on "Earthway"

"A first-rate thriller. If you are a mystery buff, you will enjoy this story, with colorful characters and that backdrop of the American Southwest."

--"Shelf Life" on "Earthway"

""

"The Thurlos have done their research thoroughly and their portrayal of the Dine, their culture, and the arid landscape surrounding them is right on. But what really brings the story to life are the characters, especially Clah, her mother Rose, brother Clifford, and FBI agent Dwayne Blalock, who are finely drawn and represent the spectrum of beliefs on the reservation. This is a book and series worth exploring, especially for readers interested in native American culture. The mystery is complex, the tension high, and the plot bends and folds like a never-ending-snake."
--"Mystery Scene Magazine" on "Never-Ending-Snake

""Each mystery is a satisfying puzzle on its own. Razor-sharp suspense, deep atmosphere, and compelling characters make this another Ella Clah winner."--"Booklist" on "Coyote's Wife

""The book mixes straightforward police procedural with Tony Hillerman-style exploration of the culture of the Navajo. Ella Clah continues to be a compelling character and the story here, which involves a possible serial killer (or maybe something a lot less complicated), should keep readers on their toes until the final pages." --"Booklist" on "Black Thunder"


"The skinwalker angle is especially creepy here, with vivid descriptions of the way they leave their calling card of body mutilation. The Thurlos mix in a great deal of knowledge about trafficking in Native American antiquities with a well-constructed investigation steered by a believable and admirable heroine."--"Booklist" on "Ghost Medicine"
"Does anybody understand the Navajo better than the Thurlos? Their keen understanding and attention to detail makes "Black Thunder" a first-rate mystery." --"RT Book Reviews" on "Black Thunder"

"An excellent, page-turning, and suspenseful read." --"Mysteries Galore" on" Black Thunder"
