Bloom's on Canyon Road, specializing in contemporary Native American art, once was a powerhouse gallery in Santa Fe. Then it lost its best-known artist, Willard Yellowhorse. Worse yet was Yellowhorse's premature death soon after arriving in New York City under very suspicious circumstances.
With Yellowhorse's final painting, Struggle, about to be sold at auction, gallery owner Charles Bloom's inner voice keeps asking two unrelenting questions: how did Willard Yellowhorse really die, and who if anyone killed him? The answers for Charles lay somewhere deep inside the Navajo nation, Yellowhorse's ancestral home.
Charles will need the help of Yellowhorse's sister, Rachael, and her grandfather, the nearly 100-year-old medicine man Hastiin Sherman, to unlock the key to Yellowhorse's death. What Charles Bloom doesn't realize is the evil coyote spirit that tracked down Yellowhorse is still watching and Charles could be next, if he isn't careful.
