Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The Thurlos introduced Ella Clah, former FBI agent who is now a special investigator for the Navajo tribal police at Shiprock in what is recognizably Tony Hillerman territory in Blackening Song. Like Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee, Clah makes use of both her law enforcement training and her understanding of tribal traditions to investigate crime on the Navajo Reservation. When an elderly Navajo historian is murdered, Clah must separate fact from rumor and myth to find the culprit. Reservation gossip and artifacts at the crime scene point to the skinwalkers witch cult, villains of Blackening Song. Ella Clah is a tough, appealing heroine, who faces personal conflict between professional duty and pride in her heritage. But she's ill served by this loose plot, in which she and her assistant, Justine Goodluck, engage in repetitive interview scenes that slow the pace and blunt the suspense. Two more tribal Elders, specialists in ritual and the Navajo language, die before the investigators get on the right track-more than halfway through the book. Then everything quickly falls into place, and the tale ends with an anticlimactic final chase. Readers may wish that Chee or Leaphorn were around to step in when necessary and set this sidelined plot on a faster course.

From School Library Journal

YA. Ella Clah, a special investigator with the tribal police on the Navajo Reservation, is determined to find the serial killer who is methodically murdering Dineh (Navajo) cultural leaders. Faced with staff shortages, threats to her own family, and the illogic of the psychopathic killer, Clah draws on her experience as an FBI agent and her intuition to solve the increasingly horrific crimes. A strong, intelligent woman, Clah devotes her life to protecting the Dineh, one of the central themes of the story. She provides an eyewitness account of the routines of police work, emphasizing the daily grind of law enforcement as well as finding clues to the murders. Constant attention is paid to the changes in terrain and weather. Characters develop into unique individuals with talents, strengths, weaknesses, and idiosyncrasies. Even minor characters take on individuality through in-depth and detailed descriptions, which add significantly to the continuity of the story. YAs, especially those looking for strong females in contemporary settings, will find Clah and her assistant and cousin, Justine Goodluck, appealing examples. A fast-paced, intriguing novel.?Pam Johnson, Fairfax County Public Library, VA

As an avid Tony Hillerman fan, I loved this book. It may even surpass many of his efforts. The story grabs you from the start and makes one want to read it through without stopping. Hopefully, we will now have a more steady flow of Navajo-Rez mysteries and lore with both Hillerman and the Thurlo's churning them out.

Ella and her family and the people who are knowledgeable about the Navajo history and rituals are in danger from 2 sources. Ella and her new assistant Justine take these killers on and try to save those who are in danger. Would highly recommend this series. The Thurlos have a wonderful series.

Aimee and David do good book. While enjoying the educational impartations describing the Navajo customs and life on the rez, we can also be guaranteed a turbulent and slightly overstimulating process enjoyed by our heroine, Ella Clah. She is a strong female figure by any ethnic measure. We get the legacy gifts given, and perhaps not recognized, to Ella, the skinwalkers desire to destroy this special family, and other political pressures experienced by the Tribal Police Department. Always involved, and mostly helpful, are the FB-eyes, as the rez calls them, who have a smart agent and a much bigger budget. She has to be the greatest multi-tasker on the planet. We have fallen in love with the closeness of her family and great, supportive friends. We are always left with the impression that even though they have arrested suspects and destroyed evil, there is still plenty more out there for future stories.

While the Thurlos cannot replace Hillerman, at least in this reader's opinion, fans of the latter will find much to enjoy in the Ella Clah series. Similar aspects of Navajo culture, spirituality and the unique atmosphere of the big Rez lead the reader through a sophisticated and believable mystery and continue the life and romance-type saga of Ella and her family. The romance aspects are muted but very much there, revealing a heritage based in the Harlequin novels Ms. Thurlo wrote before combining talents with her husband to create mysteries. As a fan of mixed genres in general, I approve. Maybe not quite a keeper but an enjoyable book.

I'll leave the technical reviews to others. I have nearly all the Thurlo's Ella Clah novels. This one I missed somehow. As usual, I enjoyed Ella's story so much. The Thurlo's stories are always page_turners. I have had many late nights because aimee did not want to stop reading.The Thurlo's books always fascinate me as I enjoy reading about other cultures and traditions set within a strong mystery. I am very sorry that Ella left her job in last novel. I wish she could find new job entailing detective work.

Once again proves that the author's know the culture and the subject well.

It's a page turning story that captures the characteristics of the people and the culture. It also tells the fast paced details of mysteries and murders wrapped in cultural beliefs. The characters are well developed and authentic .These books ( I've read two so far) fill that Tony Hillerman gap pretty well.

The saga of Elah is ongoing and always interesting. One of my favorite characters in fiction this young woman investigates horrific events and always gets the perp. Personal life details fill in and enrich the plot. Navaho cultures is presented as intelligent, interesting and struggling with modern issues while maintaining the source of Walking in Beauty. A wonderful read.
