Blurb: 
A helicopter crash, a repeatedly vandalized windmill, and a corpse whose hands and feet have been mutilated set the stage for a puzzling dilemma for Navajo Tribal Police Officer Jim Chee. Has the corpse been desecrated by a witch, or did a clever murderer destroy the flesh to make identifying the victim through his fingerprints impossible? Jim follows the clues deep into the mesas where the "old ways" are still practiced and greedy interlopers attempt to line their pockets with drug money at the expense of the native inhabitants.

Hopi police officer, Deputy "Cowboy" Dashee appears for the first time in this novel, becoming an entertaining foil for Jim Chee.
