Indian School Days Summary:
In the sixth book in the Charles Bloom Murder Mystery series…
In 1961, two Navajo boys must bet each other’s lives—and risk their most prized possessions—to escape the wrath of the sadistic headmaster of a Gallup Indian boarding school. The white devil and his spawn will stop at nothing—not even murder—to acquire the objects of their desire.
Fifty years later, a brush with death draws Rachael Yellowhorse and Charles Bloom back to the Navajo reservation, where they unwittingly stumble on a decades-old secret of child abuse and stolen heirlooms. Charles and Rachael must pick the awful lock of truth before deadly traps for the Navajo boys—now grown men—are sprung. The extended Bloom family also is in peril as the circle of life closes in on all those involved, and the white crosses in the graveyard of Two Trees Indian School yearn for justice.
“Mark Sublette hits all the right notes in his latest Charles Bloom Murder Mystery, Indian School Days. The abhorrent treatment of a young Navajo student leads, fifty years later, to a deadly matchup with unexpected consequences.” — Jean-Paul and Rebecca Valette, authors of Navajo Weavings with Ceremonial Themes
“A fast-paced race for survival through the Navajo Nation, stolen Navajo heirlooms that must be found and a fifty-year-old secret too terrifying to tell. Sublette once more delivers.” — Mark Winter, author of The Master Weavers and owner of the Historic Toadlena Trading Post
“Indian School Days beautifully combines Navajo art and history set against a riveting and engaging mystery that gradually unfolds to the reader. This is something that only a person with Sublette’s expertise and understanding could pull off. A great novel as well as a lesson in Navajo history.” — Joshua Rose, editor of Western Art Collector, American Art Collector, and Native American Art
