9780061000034: The Dark Wind (Jim Chee Novels)

The corpse had been "scalped," its palms and soles removed after death. Sergeant Jim Chee of the Navajo Tribal Police knows immediately he will have his hands full with this case, a certainty that is supported by the disturbing occurrences to follow. A mysterious nighttime plane crash, a vanishing shipment of cocaine, and a bizarre attack on a windmill only intensify Chee's fears. A dark and very ill wind is blowing through the Southwestern desert, a gale driven by Navajo sorcery and white man's greed. And it will sweep away everything unless Chee can somehow change the weather.

Product Description:

A corpse is mutilated in witchcraft fashion, a vandal is repeatedly damaging a Hopi windmill in the desert, a burglar who steals from Jake West's trading post behaves unconventionally, and, when a drug-smuggling aircraft crashes close to Chee, to where does the dope immediately vanish?
