Ramona Emerson's debut mystery, Shutter, repeatedly gave me chills. Every time Dine forensic photographer Rita Todacheene turns up to shoot a crime scene, the ghosts of the victims quickly understand that she can "see" them and beseech her to turn in their killer. One particularly persistent woman goads Rita further and further into danger in her search for justice. I couldn't put this one down. Recommended by Kelly
This blood-chilling debut set in New Mexico’s Navajo Nation is equal parts gripping crime thriller, supernatural horror, and poignant portrayal of coming of age on the reservation.
