Ella Clah is no longer an unsure young woman recently returned to the Navajo Reservation from a stint with the FBI; she has found her place in her tribe, her clan, and her family. She has watched her mother find new love and watched her daughter begin to find her own way to "walk in beauty." As a Special Investigator with the Navajo Police, Ella has seen the Dine at their best - and at their worst - as they strive to balance the modern era with the traditional Navajo way of life.
Electricity and telephone service are scattershot on the Reservation - and some people highly value living beyond the reach of technology. Ervin Benally, son-in-law of a powerful Navajo businesswoman and politician, is determined to provide cell phone coverage for the whole Navajo Nation, despite the many traditionalists who oppose the construction of cell phone towers throughout the Rez.
When Benally is attacked and another man is killed, his mother-in-law, Abigail Yellowhair, pulls strings to have Navajo Police Special Investigator Ella Clah assigned to the case. There's no love lost between these women, but Yellowhair knows that Ella will do whatever is necessary to solve the crimes. When Ella's investigation shows evidence of Navajo witchcraft, she becomes more determined than ever to find out who is behind the attacks, even knowing that she might be exposing herself to skinwalker magic.
