Edition Notes: 

This is the first German edition of The Ghostway, the sixth book in Tony Hillerman's Navajo Mystery Series and the third novel featuring the protagonist Sergeant Jim Chee of the Navajo Tribal Police. This edition is published by Rowohlt as part of their thriller series. This series is similar to Rowohlt's non-thriller series edition; however, it has a different cover and some slightly different front matter. The title translates as "Taboo of the Spirits (or Ghosts) of the Dead." The cover, designed by Manfred Waller, consists of a photo-collage of skyscrapers, a buffalo skull and feathers. The text was translated by Klaus Fröba.
