This mystery wasn't the cleverest I've ever seen. There wasn't enough suspects to make the big reveal hard to figure out. I did, however, appreciate the unique setting of a reservation as the murder mystery setting and seeing Native/Indigenous characters and everyday life and community. I was fascinated to learn it was filmed on location at the Navajo Reservation and directed by Native American director, Chris Eyre.

An adaptation of a Tony Hillerman book. Wes Studi and Adam Beach are great together. I wish there were more Hillerman movies with these two. One minute their scrapping, and the next saving each others lives. Pretty true to life!

Murder mystery set on the Navajo reservation. 3 medicine men / healers are murdered and one dectective believes their deaths may have been caused by a skinwalker - spirit / shapeshifter. Interesting setting, never guessed the murderer. Not great, but easy to watch.

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. “Not too bad---good performance”. "I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.”

Excellent entertainment with great characters, acting, stories, and especially local color. Beach and Studi have nailed their characters. Wish there were many more of these.
