Dark Wind (Motion Picture)

This motion picture adaptation of the novel stars Lou diamond Phillips as Jim Chee and Fred Ward as Joe Leaphorn.

The popular hero of several Tony Hillerman best-sellers, Navajo cop Jim Chee, is a student of the old ways who wanted to be a medicine man before he became a lawman. Now as a cop covering the Arizona Territories belonging to the Hopi and Navajo Indians, he's torn between both worlds. When the badly mutilated victim of a Navajo skinwalker is found on Hopi land, Chee is suddenly plunged into a world of mystery filled with drug dealers, F.B.I. agents, witchcraft, international politics and revenge.
