A corpse in the desert-its face unidentifiable, its hands and feet flayed ... A mysterious plane crash and a missing cache of cocaine ... Sgt. Jim Chee of the Navajo Tribal Police had no business meddling in these matters. His assignment is simple: discover who is sabotaging a windmill on land recently ceded over to the Hopis. But his extraordinary tracking skills and genius for sleuthing will lead him deep into the remote washes and isolated mesas where the Hopis hold their most secret ceremonies, trapping him in a deadly web of intrigue driven by Navajo sorcery and white man's greed.
