A construction crew found the first body. The cops found three more―on both sides of the border of the Navajo Reservation.

Because some of the bodies were buried outside the rez, Navajo Police Special Investigator Ella Clah and her team must work a delicate joint investigation with the New Mexico police. Identifying the dead isn't easy―some had been buried for years―and the cases are stone cold. Then one of the bodies turns out to be that of a missing man who was believed to have embezzled funds from his construction firm...and suspicions focus on the man's partner.

With no obvious links between any of the corpses and the anniversary of their deaths fast approaching, Ella feels frustrated. Unless she and her team can find what connects these victims, someone else may soon be killed. Ella's ability to concentrate is battered by worries about her teenage daughter, who has been skipping school, and her mother, who is cooking up a storm, a sure sign that trouble is brewing in the household.

Comments to eBook Black Thunder: An Ella Clah Novel
Phalaken
This novel in the continuing story of Investigator Ella Clah of the Navajo Police is the Thurlo's next to last one, as Aimee Thurlo died suddenly only a couple of years ago. It continues the overall story but involves a new set of crimes and seeming contradictiions for Ella as she has to try to "walk in beauty" between 2 conflicting viewpoints of Navajo life--that of the Traditionalists and of the Modernists. She holds the reader's attention at all times while presenting a modern day view of life on the Rez. Each novel continues the overall story, so each character is like an old friend, someone we have gotten to know or will get to know better. The plot is intriguing, and this is one of those really good books that you just don't want to see end. The Ella Clah novels probably make more sense if they are read in chronological order, but one can still start with any one and skip around and still know what is going on. I read all the Tony Hillerman Navajo detective novels before beginning the Thurlo's novels. Hillerman describes the physical settings and the landscape better, but I think the Thurlo's develop their plots better, and their novels have more suspense.

Another enjoyable read. I really enjoy reading about the Navajo ways and life styles. Some of they're ways are hard to get my mind around, but I understand they, as ALL people and ALL religions, have "traditions and beliefs". Good, bad, real, silly or normal. It's not for me to judge. Only for me to know and let them follow they're ways and try my best not to offend, and offer apologies when I realize I have. Always hoping others will extend me the same courtesy.
Looking forward to reading more of their books.
I highly recommend this book and these authors!

I was looking for some reading by a New Mexican author to complement my Tony Hillerman books and found Aimee & David Thurlo. Black Thunder is the lastest in their Ellah Clah series. It was the first of their books that I read and I wish I had started with the novels at the beginning of the series. Each book stands on it's own. But, I like to have the background. These books are fast paced and interesting reading, They highlight the modern conflicts between the Navaho and the larger American culture outside the "Rez". Using Ellah Clah, the main character, and her family and friends, as well as her enemies, the books educate and entertain through police investigations about events in and around the "Rez". Ellah, as lead investigator, is strong and intelligent. She uses the differences between cultures to her advantage and never forgets her Navaho heritage. They emphasize strong family relationships and support in each novel. I have since begun acquiring the other novels in the series and started to read them in order of publishing. Black Thunder, as the most recent. is better that the early novels. It is written more smoothly and the story flows well. It shows a maturity that the early novels lack, to a degree. It is insightful about the relationships and differences between the characters in the book and highlights the personalities. If you like fast paced crime stories with an unusual twist and setting, all of the books in this series are a good investment. I will obtain them all and will re-read them over the years. Black Thunder is a good start to collecting these novels.

I've read all of the Ella books in the Thurlo series. Although this book wasn't my favorite, I still found the story interesting, the setting (as always) captivating, and the characters truly likable. In fact, I would like to see more of Ella's mother and even some more side stories about Justine. In the tradition of Hillerman, the Ella Clah novels capture the look and feel of Navajoland - if you haven't ever been there in person (which you should), this is about as close to it as you'll get.

I was a little disappointed in this offering in the Ella Clah series. I've read them all. I'm wondering if the author, like me, is getting a little bored with the same type of story in each book. I've enjoyed following Ella, and her family, through all sorts of cases. However, this book seemed pretty much a reiteration of many of the others. There has got to be more than this for Ella. She is a character that deserves something better than a fading away into repetitiveness. Anything upcoming??

The Ella Clah novels of Aimee & David Thurlo have given me much reading pleasure. Black Thunder is another exciting adventure as Ella investigates a serial killer. At the same time, Ella struggles with a parent's frustrations, a love-life she never seems to have time for, and finding a balance between her Native American culture and her career as a police officer.

As always the Thurlo's stories have rich dialogue. Their multi-faceted characters have become familiar as the series has progressed. I've enjoyed seeing her daughter grow up and her mother reach for new meaning in her life as a community elder. I am very pleased to highly recommend this book.
DEAD-SHOT
The Thurlos have done it again. Their main skill is in bringing to life what is, for many of us, a foreign setting and making us understand and enjoy it. This is true of the Ella Clah books and of the Sister Agnes novels (although not very foreign to this survivor of a Catholic boarding school!). Clah's on-going dilemma about her place in the Dineh continues to ring true, and is a microcosm for each person's striving to find their place in the world. It is beautifully worked. A rattling good mystery, a fascinating setting and vivid writing.
Hated to see Ella's stories come to an end, but thought the book kept pace with the others in the series and was a fitting ending to the series. I was enjoying the series so much that for me, the end of the trail came too soon.
