Blurb: 
Navajo Police Officer Jim Chee narrowly escapes death when someone fires a shotgun into his trailer three times. Jim can't think of any reason someone would want to kill him, and wonders if there is any relation between this and the three unsolved murders on the reservation where rumors of "skinwalkers," evil shapeshifters from Navajo mythology, are rampant.

For the first time, Jim Chee works directly with Joe Leaphorn, creating an interesting interplay of personalities. Joe is methodical and direct. Jim is intuitive and "traditional" in the sense of being very involved in the Navajo spiritual realm. Both are brilliant detectives and men of sound moral character.

This book made Bestseller List and also won the Western Writers of America Spur Award in 1986.
