Edition Notes: 

The Goldmann paperback publication of People of Darkness (1980), the fourth book in Hillerman's Navajo Mystery series and the first to introduce the character of Sergeant Jim Chee of the Navajo Tribal Police.

The bright red cover dominates the sepia-toned photograph at the bottom of the front cover, which shows a man in a suit and tie wearing the headdress of an American Plains Indian. The first two Goldmann editions of Hillerman's work, Tod der Maulwürfe (People of Darkness) and Karo Drei (The Dark Wind), appear with red covers. The text is translated into German by Friedrich A. Hofschuster
