Summary æ Blackening Song ß PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Black ening Song is the debut of Navajo FBI agent Ella Clah who returns to the reservation to investigate the murder of her father a minister. Something about Tony Hillerman s writing has never uite sat well with me so I was pleased to find another pair of writers who had tried to write about crime on the Reservation While I would not call Ella Clah s debut outstanding I will consider trying other books by the Thurlo s unfortunately Aimee has passed and David remains writingThe murder of Ella s father forces draws the FBI special agent back to a place she has avoided Ella has felt torn between her father s decision to become a Christian reverend and her mother s adherence to the Dineh s traditional ways Add to this Ella s charismatic brother Clifford has steadily become a force on the Rez as a medicine man forgive I cannot use the proper Dineh spelling without the book in front of me And Clifford is a leading suspect in their father s deathIn the prologue the Thurlo s mention that there are aspects of Dineh beliefs and practices that they do not go into in full out of respect for the Dineh David Thurlo grew up on the Rez this is mentioned in the afterword Perhaps this is why it felt like the setting and description of the community felt accurate to me as a note my step daughter is Native AmericanThis is a very steady procedural with a focus being on Ella feeling torn between two worlds and trying to find her own path

Summary æ Blackening Song ß PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook The ritual nature of the killing makes Ella's brother a medicine man the prime suspect Without cooperation from the tribe the FBI or the loc. Full disclosure I only got to the beginning of Chapter 4 And usually I don t review books I can t finish If I don t like a book after the first 10 20% then I don t finish it but I don t normally write a review because on some level I don t think that s fair to the authors BUT in the case of Blackening Song I am making an exception I had read some good reviews from a mystery group and I love Tony Hillerman books so I was looking forward to reading this book And the first chapter was promising except for one glaring issue with the main character s judgment of a person who turned out to be a murderer But I was willing to believe that the character had let her judgment slip a bitChapters two three and the first bit of four disappointed me on several levels I did not believe an FBI agent with six years of experience in that agency would behave the way the main character did As a female in a male dominated profession I have an expectation of how characters will behave who are similarly situated For example the author Dana Stabenow created a female character who is also Native American and who works in law enforcement and that character rings true to me This character did notAlso the authors did not follow the show don t tell rule that is key to writing I like to read The over explaining got very old I enjoy reading work by authors who treat me as if I can figure some things out for myselfAnd I was very disappointed in the Navajo storyline None of the characters rang true to me based on my reading and study of Navajo culture
