    A 16-year old girl is brutally murdered as this story opens. The killer, not satisfied with the slashing of her body until her breath is gone, rapes her after her death. Then he is ready for his next victim. Arthur and Sharon Nakai are tentatively trying to keep their marriage fires stoked after several years and the loss of a baby. Still in love, they are noticing that things between them aren’t quite as special as they once were. But when Sharon, a reporter for a local TV station, flies out of A 16-year old girl is brutally murdered as this story opens. The killer, not satisfied with the slashing of her body until her breath is gone, rapes her after her death. Then he is ready for his next victim. Arthur and Sharon Nakai are tentatively trying to keep their marriage fires stoked after several years and the loss of a baby. Still in love, they are noticing that things between them aren’t quite as special as they once were. But when Sharon, a reporter for a local TV station, flies out of town to cover a story, those worries disappear when she is kidnapped by an Apache responsible not only for the death of that 16 year old girl but others as well. Arthur, a former member of the Shadow Wolves, a tactical unit trained as part of Homeland Security, sets out to track the killer down and save his wife. Beautiful imagery and interesting Navajo teachings are woven into this story. There are no real surprises, and the story ends pretty much as expected. Although the characters were a little one-dimensional and I would have liked to feel a little more emotion from Arthur rather than the “big strong man saves the little woman” impression I got from his character, all-in-all it was a good story that kept me interested. I’m hoping the author, Mark Edward Langley, continues a series with these characters so we can learn more about them. I rated this a solid 3 stars with a thank you to NetGalley Blackstone Publishing for the opportunity to read this in exchange for my honest review.

Fascinating from the point of view of the setting – that’s what attracted me to this book unsurprisingly as it delves into many areas surrounding the Navajo Apache reserve which covers much of Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado. It’s not the most exciting novel in that the chase and the kidnaps are nothing too out of the ordinary, but the context of the political, police and social history of the place interested me a lot. I would definitely want to read what ever the author writes next and I hope this is the start of a very unique series. New Mexico traditions and landscape, Apache culture and more play a huge role in this thriller and I’d love to see more in future. Shadow Wolves too. I’m quite taken with it all. That Navajo wind blows a chilly breeze into the thriller landscape despite the heat!

    I typically don't give star ratings or write comments about books that I DNF. However, I need to say something here. The initial conversation between the the protagonist couple was so off the mark from reality that it made me want to puke. Sorry, that's not they wording one should use in a book review, but I don't seem to be cable to come up with anything else to say. Having a baby is going to help the distance she perceives between them? And this "distance" is literally that - he doesn't sleep I typically don't give star ratings or write comments about books that I DNF. However, I need to say something here.

And all kinds of other trivial things that are normal as couples spend time together over years? I listened a bit longer because I was knitting and needed something. Bad choice. All elements as far as I got continued horribly cliched. Nothing appealing at all for me. Had to stop.

Once I did I was put with a book that I did not want to put down until I got to the last page. You are taken on a journey from the person who is kidnapping and killing women, to the couple and their struggles from the past and for every day. That is until Leonard Kansewah, kidnaps Sharon Nakai who is a local news reporter. More importantly her husband Arthur is a retired Marine and was part of a special ops team shadow wolves. They were recruited by the Government to track drug smugglers, human traffickers, they worked with Home land security and were an all Native American Indian unit because of their tracking abilities. Now seeing that the FBI has gotten nothing in the first few hours he decides to look into things himself. This is where the real story begins. You are taken on a journey through the west and through mostly Native American lands which only enhance this story. The story has suspense and mystery and will keep you hooked until the very end. A very good book. I received this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 5 stars. Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com

    "I did not know who he was or why he was shown to me; I saw only the blackness of his heart. Before, he travelled the path of life. Now, he travels the path of the dead." Intriguing but the storytelling was rushed or at least I felt a bit bored at first then after a while everything was happening so fast. As for the plot, Arthur, an ex-marine, whose wife has been kidnapped by a killer, takes action while FBI is preoccupied. I was keen on the native American theme; however, descriptions were brief "I did not know who he was or why he was shown to me; I saw only the blackness of his heart.

    Navajo Wind by author Mark Edward Langley is a well written and fast paced suspense thriller which will take you through some of the most beautiful and rugged country in the United States. I thoroughly enjoyed this book for the wonderful main characters, the imagery of the locations, and the American Native culture.

The book begins with a very graphic scene of a young woman being murdered by Leonard Kanesewah, an Apache who has become a serial killer. He leaves his victims in a certain pose as if they will be able to fly to their new life. Arthur Nakai is a retired marine and an ex-member of an elite Special Ops group known as the Shadow Wolves. The Shadow Wolves are an ICE tactical unit recruited by the US Government to hunt human traffickers and drug smugglers on the US/Mexico border as part of Homeland Security. Arthur's wife, Sharon, a KZRV-TV field reporter has been taken hostage by a brutal Apache serial killer who is trying to escape to the border, Leonard Kanesewah. The local authorities who are trying to track him think he will head to the border for Mexico. Arthur decides before he starts tracking Kanesewah, he needs to tell Sharon's father face-to-face. Edward is a shaman and tells Arthur of a vision, and this information leads Arthur to head north. I won't post spoilers, but I am hopeful to read more of Arthur, Sharon, Jake, Edward, and Abraham Fast Horse with the Black Foot Brotherhood in some of the most beautiful places in the west I have hiked and roamed. Thank you to NetGalley and the Publisher for the opportunity to read and review this book.

He has the skills…and the motivation!…to save his wife from certain death and nothing can stop him. He’s great! Authur’s friend, Abraham Fast Horse, is another man who is devoted to his wife. Have I mentioned how much I like that in a story? Happy, devoted couples always works well for me. Between these two men and their friends and connections, the chase is on. And it’s quite a chase through beautiful but dangerous areas. I was mesmerized and read the whole book in one sitting. Mr. Langley is a talented writer, keeping the story moving at a fast clip without skipping the details that make a story breathe. I hope that Mr. Langley is working on his next story, maybe with more about Fast Horse! I recommend this book for all readers and all age groups! Grab a copy and… Enjoy!

I've never visited this corner of the world, however, although perhaps one day. Sharon and Arthur Nakai are trying to figure out why things don't seem to be the same between them, several years after the loss of a baby. The mood is sombre that morning when Sharon leaves for a job and Arthur is left to brood at home. Then Sharon is kidnapped by a man who has killed at least ten other women and the chase is on. Arthur, an ex-military and Shadow Wolf (tracking human traffickers at the Mexico/USA border), sets out to find his wife and take care of the man who took her. He contacts his friend, Abraham Fast Horse, a Blackfoot he worked with in the Shadow Wolves, to help. The story moves quickly and I got pulled right in and thoroughly enjoyed it. My only quibble is that it seemed to end quite suddenly and a bit predictably, although it was definitely the right (and only) way to end it. Outside of that, I hope Mr Langley continues with this series as I will be keeping my eyes out for it! Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for the ARC to review. All opinions are my own.

    Quick and easy read. I read this book initially because of the New Mexico setting. Since I grew up in New Mexico I was expecting to recognize many of the place names. However, the story only stays in New Mexico briefly, then heads north.

Characters are good in a pulp fiction kind of way -- brief descriptions and more exposition than meaningful dialogue, but good nonetheless. This was my first novel by Langley, but I'll very likely read more. The 3-star rating is more for the lack of developmental depth of the tomes I usually like to read, but for the audience this book is intended to appeal to, it is quite good. A few things that almost drove me away -- the bad guy is a real creeper. Opening sequence is truly disturbing and I really felt uneasy with a story beginning with such brutality being described in such detail. However, again, the remainder of the book did not continue quite so brutally, though there is a great deal of brutality in the book. The other thing that pretty much turned me off is the behavior of the villain concerning the undergarments of his 16-year-old victim. Tough to take. Descent observations, solid writing skills, and a story that moves quickly make this a good choice for those who enjoy single-subject murder/action/thriller genre books.

    I enjoyed this book but I did skip some of the more gratuitous passages, especially the opening with the murder of a young girl. The plot made me think of Liam Neeson in Taken when he says "I will find you and I will kill you." but in this case the lead is Arthur, an ex Shadow Wolf, Native American who's wife is taken by the hideous killer and used as collateral across a large part of America. There is a lot going on in the area when she is kidnapped and the police/FBI are somewhat preoccupied.

The characters are credible and the behaviours fit the situations. I will look out for more by this author. I was given a copy of this book by Netgalley in return for an honest review.

This is a quick and easy read. The killer is irredeemable, no sympathy there. The dialogue is stilted. all the Native American characters routinely spout off philosophy and bits of wisdom. I didn't care much for Sharon; she was annoying, whiny and not especially resourceful. The dog was great and the action is fast. The ending was abrupt. Not a bad read while sheltering in place.

    A fast read about a man hunting for his wife against a lot of odds. Langley introduces Arthur Nakai, a man with more talents than he's using in his current daily life, and his wife Sharon, who is taken by a serial killer.

    Path of the Dead by Mark Edward Langley was a good solid read. It grabs you from the start with a murder and keeps your attention as Sharon is taken by the serial killer and her husband Arthur (known tracker) hunts them down and tries to get her back. I found the story interesting and the characters are compelling and you get to know them as the story unfolds. Thank you Netgalley and Blackstone Publishing for allowing me to read this ARC book for my honest opinion.

When it read the last word on the last page, I was disappointed that I was going to have to wait a while to catch up with Arthur and see where his travels take him next.

    You never know Desert to snowy mountains, the settings were described well, as was the journey. Arthur is a great character, one who has the solid qualities you want to see in a hero. He has his wife, his ranch, his business, but there was a life before that. You never know what can happen in the blink of an eye what can change everything you woke up knowing. Then the thrills begin.

It had really gruesome murder scenes and murders, but I loved the old Native American sayings,and even how the vision of his father in law set Arthur Nakai off in the right direction to look for his kidnapped wife who had been taken by the killer.

    A crash that keeps you spellbound. Langley knows his stuff as a cold blooded killer takes you on a ride deep into the wilderness. A loving husband who knows the ways of a fugitive on his heels. The only thing Langley gets wrong is changing a revolver into an automatic during exciting scenes that lead to a tense standoff. I'm looking forward to another meeting with Arthur Nakai.

    Great Short and sweet. A good read. I really attached to the characters. To me that is what makes a novel great. Love that has no limits. Understanding what is happening in their minds. That makes a great story. Write on.

    A pretty short listen with a brutal beginning. Too many unexplained side stories that will probably set up things to come in future books. It was 2 hours into the 6 hour book before the husband started looking for his wife because of the side stories.

    The author tries a bit too hard in his first novel. The writing, particularly the dialogue, often seems to be more an attempt to be clever than real. And for a man trying to rescue his wife, the protagonist lacks urgency. The author shows promise, but could have used stronger editing..

    This is book 1 of a 2 book series. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the next one. The main characters are Navaho and Blackfoot Native Americans and former military and border patrol officers. I don't usually read male mysteries, but plan to read more of this author.

    This is the first of the series. If your are a Tony Hillerman fan, you may like this book. The characters are interesting and the plot moves in an unexpected way with the resolution satisfying but not completely expected. It flows well and is easy to read in an afternoon, hard to put down.
