    All sorts of conflicts are built into this ninth installment in the Thurlos' series set on a Four Corners Navajo reservation and focusing on the work of Navajo Police Special Investigator Ella Clah. There is the inherent tension between the old, new, and neotraditional ways of the Navajos; there is conflict with outsiders; and there are the conflicts Clah faces between being a traditionally raised Navajo and a female cop in very untraditional circumstances. In a hair-raising opening, Clah's fall down an abandoned uranium mining shaft and the bizarre way in which she survives give her a whole new set of problems, since many Navajos believe she survived because she was helped by evil spirits. Clah is forced to track down a 90-year-old medicine man to cleanse her, a task made more daunting by a rash of arsons on the reservation, which quickly start claiming victims. The Thurlos hit all the right notes: they have an intriguing, growing character at the center of a series that combines fast-moving plots and a wealth of fascinating cultural information.
