Publisher's Summary

For Sergeant Jim Chee of the Navajo Tribal Police, the case begins when he finds a pair of boots in the rabbit brush beside a wilderness trail. The boots' owner lies nearby, his palms and soles "scalped" in what appears to be a witch's scavenging. The federal investigators tell Chee to mind his own business. But a series of disturbing events draws Chee into a dangerous web of intrigue spun by Navajo sorcery and white greed.

    Story
    "Hillerman's stuck on the flypaper of his storyline"

    The author creates a great dichotomy between indigenous mythology and detective work. His Native American heroes face the challenge of policing autonomous nations within overlapping police jurisdictions. Normally, this just adds to the interest. But in "The Dark Wind," Hillerman paints himself into a corner. Unable to write a happy ending, he forces his hero to act irrationally in order to stay true to the constraints he has forced upon the storyline.
