A BLAST OF CRIME...

A dead man's boots left on a dusty trail. A
bloody corpse with the palms and soles
sliced off. A crazed vandal. A plane flying to sudden illogical death. In the troubled
borderlands, order has become chaos.

But Jim Chee of the Navajo Tribal Police
knows instinctively what these things mean. And when the Federal agents arrive, he is already on the way to finding a stolen cache of cocaine... But the Dark Wind has come to the vast lands of the deep southwest, and it is blowing Chee towards a violent confrontation with ancient witchcraft, modern greed... and brutal murder.

'Fast, fun and exciting' SPECTATOR
