While I did NOT find this book a "thriller," in terms of not being able to put it down, the story did keep moving right along, and I did find it to be a very interesting mystery.
For those who are interested in Indian lore and the southwest, I would equally recommend it to readers. Overall, a very enjoyable book.
Excellent book about Ellah Clah, former FBI investigator, back on the Navajo Reservation. Ellah is stunned when several people are murdered. These were experts in the tribe's religious rituals. What is going on!?
Although I really really like the Hillerman books better than this series, the insights that the Turlos' give into Navaho spirituality are very appealing. This second book in the series is better wriiten than the first, in my view-I have just technical things in mind here. I am wondering how the authors are going to vary their story lines in future books-it almost seems like there is only one antagonist concept for them, which I will not give away here. Perhaps the authors will do more in their descriptions of the landscape as did Tony Hillerman. After only one visit to the area, the more I can picture in my mind the better I like it. But all in all this is a very satisfying story.
