    This series finally clicked with me--not sure if it was me or the writer but I dashed through this book. If any reservation cops have days that are half as long as Ella Clah's I pity. But the story itself moved quickly and managed to keep a whole lot of different strings unknotted!

    I seriously thought this book would never end. I need to say that it is a series, and I have not read the previous books, nor do I plan to. While I found the Native American information fascinating, there wasn't enough of an early explanation of things for me to fully grasp it. Also there were multiple plot lines going and it all ended with a more supernatural feel to it. Some things were not explained, while other things were explained a zillion times.

    Enjoyable but not their best.I like Ella Clah and I love reading Navajo novel. This novel seemed to have too many entities and I had difficulty following the various storylines. It won't stop me from reading more of their novels and I can recommend the Thurlo books.

    The evil ones - Navajo witches bent on destroying Ella Clah's family and causing chaos among the Dineh - resurface in Enemy Way. Ella's mother, Rose Destea, is badly injured in an auto accident, teen gangs clash and the fiance of Ella's good friend Joe Wilson is murdered. All three incidents are linked, though the links are not easy to uncover. Surprising details about Joe's fiance surface as Ella and her cousin and police colleague, Justine, uncover signs of the family's enemies at work. The geography of the Rez continues to be a complex and fascinating character in itself that adds to the difficulties of unraveling the mystery. An enjoyable afternoon or bedtime read. With each Ella Clah novel, my interest in visiting this area of the country and learning more about the Navajo culture grows. Isn't that the sign of a good read - one that piques curiosity and challenges us even just a little to expand our understanding?

    Yet another excellent installment to this series. Love how action packed this one was. Although it does bring up the question about how the characters will be able to keep up if every book has numerous crimes in it; as this is just book #4 out of 16 written (so far). It seems as if they are always on the move and really have no time to themselves. Of course that might just be the way things are for police detectives in real life. I don't personally know any in that field of law enforcement, so I really have no idea how accurate the pace of work is in regards to that depicted in this series. But in other cop mysteries I have read, the characters do manage to get some free time in order to pursue a personal life outside of their jobs. It will be interesting to see if this trend of the tribal police department being understaffed continues in books to come.

    Ella Clah is a terrific character. If you like Tony Hillerman's books, you'll enjoy this series. Ella Clah is a Najaho policewoman working on the reservation, in this book, there are gang problems on the reservation, there have been a series of burglaries and now one that turned into murder when a teacher forgets her grade book and comes home unexepectedley to her home being robbed, then Ella's mother is hit by a drunk driver, a tribal lawyer who has had multiple DUI's but has gotten off and if there isn't enough going on in Ella's life but there is also a growing gang problem on the reservation. Definitely going to read more of these.

    I first read this in 2000, and just finished it again. Fortunately, (or unfortunately) my memory isn't what it used to be, and I can reread books and not remember enough to spoil the plot! It's possible for me to reenter the world and experience it all over again. I truly enjoy the Thurlo's writing and their depiction of the Navajo culture. Enemy Way is the 4th Ella Clah mystery and each one is great.

    My first "Ella Clah". I love Hillerman so this was an adjustment and I tried hard not to judge. It was good but I didn't understand much (again) of the personal relationships. A few more hints would have been nice and not to much of a drag for the educated Ella fans.

    This book was just too mystical for this Anglo. I do not believe in Magic or Ghostwalkers so I found it just kind of silly overall. I have read other books in this series that are not quite so intuned to the Indian mystics and they are far better. I do like the writing style of the Thurlos.

    Another good story that combines real world (gang violence) and Navajo magic. I wish the author would put in the pronunciation of the Navajo words.

    Ella Clah does it againAnother enjoyable read with a good set of characters. I'm looking forward to the next book to see if the list of will expand beyond "Skin walkers".

    I love Ella Clah and this whole series, altho' it wouldn't be bad for her to get a love interest that lasted at some point--she is a great Native American and the mysteries are very good
