When Never-ending-snake begins, Navajo Police Special Investigator Ella Clah is returning from Washington, DC, where she was offered a lucrative job with a private security firm. Taking the job would mean uprooting her daughter, but it might give the young teen opportunities she’d never see on the Reservation.
As Ella and her companions deplane, gunfire sends them diving for cover. When the shooting stops, a Navajo war hero has been mortally wounded—but was alternative fuel lobbyist Nelson Lonewolf the intended victim? Or was the gunman aiming for powerful tribal attorney Kevin Tolino? Or for Ella herself?
Ella struggles to find the killers while helping the tribe find a way to move forward with the alternative-fuel project and protecting her family—and Kevin, her daughter’s father.
Never-ending-snake, a tense police procedural, is part of the Ella Clah mystery series.
