Set on the Navajo reservation and packed with Native American wisdom, Aimee and David Thurlo's Ella Clah novels are written with a sharp eye for the conflict between the traditionalist and modernist ways of life. BAD MEDICINE. Formerly an FBI agent, Ella Clah has returned to the reservation and is now a special investigator with the Navajo police force. She walks a tightrope between the Navajo and white worlds, fully accepted in neither but needed by both. Ella's brother Clifford, a hataali or medicine man, says that her investigative skills are a gift from the spirits who guard and guide the Navajo, but Ella insists it's her FBI training that has honed her instincts. Bad Medicine finds Ella treading even more carefully than usual as she investigates a politically sensitive case while trying to protect a dear friend from unjust persecution. When the daughter of Senator Yellow- hair is killed in a suspicious car accident, the senator accuses Ella and the tribe's medical examiner, Dr. Carolyn Roanhorse, of tampering with evidence and falsifying the autopsy results. The fact that the young woman's body is mutilated and that Dr. Roanhorse's samples disappear doesn't help the mood on the reservation, already tense due to conflict between whites and Indians at the Navajo-owned mine. Ella learns of two secret organizations, the white Brotherhood and the Navajo Fierce Ones, that are behind the escalating violence. An outbreak of meningitis further disrupts Navajo life as the reservation's inhabitants must decide whether or not to be vaccinated. Those who follow the old ways reject modern medicine, preferring to trust in the tribe's attend vaccination clinics-- only to flee when Navajos begin dying from an unknown disease. Ella is convinced that somehow all these things tie together, but finding the connections is difficult and dangerous. Threats come from all sides, and clues lead Ella to suspect that Navajo witches may somehow be involved, putting not only her life but her soul in danger. Still, Ella has sworn to protect her people from all menaces--spiritual and physical--and she's not going to back off now.
