Overview

Ben Dejooli is a Navajo cop who can't escape his past. Six years ago his little sister Ana vanished without a trace. His best friend saw what happened but he refuses to speak of what he knows, and so was banished from the Navajo tribe. That was the day the crows started following Ben.

Caroline Adams is a nurse with a special talent: she sees things others can’t see. She knows that Ben is more than he seems, and that the crows are trying to tell him something.

What the crows know could shed new light on the mystery of Ana's disappearance, or it could place Ben and Caroline at risk of vanishing just like she did.

I'm not sure I can write a review that will adequately express how much I loved this book! If I could give it ten stars, I would. It is mystical and funny and exciting--and, well, just perfect in every way. B.B. Griffith has done an amazing job of creating characters the reader can identify with and I love his method of telling the story from the first person point of view of three of them in alternating chapters. I'm also impressed with the amount of research he did, both on the Navajo ceremonies and on the medical details. While some of the things that happen in the book are certainly sad, the overall feeling I got from it was one of peace--that there is something more than just our plane of existence. I'm so glad this is the first book in a series, because I don't want to give up the world of the book just yet. And I really don't want to give up the red crow!

This book is an insult to the Navajo way of life and culture. It appears the author has used a smattering of knowledge about the people and used it for a spin off of a supernatural tale. To compare his work to Hillerman's is also an insult. Hillerman's research was impecable and he knew the people and respected their customs. The geography references are very confusing.....Chaco reservation, ABQ General? Majority of the Navajo people and land is in Arizona and more orient to Flagstaf and Phoenix though some go to ABQ. And black suits on the rez? Any major death, especially of an anglo becomes a federal investigation. This book is so full of errors itis difficult to read. Only the RN part is credible. But what do I know? I only worked and lived on the rez for six years working as an RN and 2 1/2 years as a flight nurse, working side by side with their healers.

Yhis book is about 230 pages, it is first person, but it is like the author is having the characters tell the reader, the story. I had a hard getting used to this and I can not say I liked it. This is the first book in a series. It is a suspense, paranormal, mystery. There is cursing and violence. I do not really care for paranormal and this one is a bit odd. It takes place in NM on a navajo reservation. The book covets 12 years and is very sad in places, it is also very dark and offers a different outlook on the angel of death. This is not chick lit and can be rather creepy. I did not really care for it, but I was looking for something different to read. This was difeently different and suspensful. For ages 18 and up. Not chick lit. It has a conclusion, but it is also left open, so it can quay into the next book. Paranormal fans wull really enjoy this book. AD

I am a big Hillerman fan and have missed Leaphorn and Chee. This almost reaches them hope this story continues. I would like to see more of Ben, Carolinne and Owen

This was a difficult story to review. It is creative and somewhat compelling but has a dark side also. I am not familiar with Navajo lore so this was out of the box paranormal concept. The author kept me interested til the end and still this not a reread for me.

This book takes the reader to places we don' t want to be reminded of, or that MIGHT exist. A tale of life/ death n the many ways to arrive at the door leading to the end. Totally thought provoking tale here!

An original, supernatural tale that while might not correctly portray the Navajo culture, spins a tale of fiction that intrigues and excites. The author has created some endearing characters with the innate ability of expressing some witty and very human inner dialogue.
