Prophecy Rock - winner of the Edgar Allan Poe Award
Will Lansa, who was raised by his mother in Aspen, is spending the summer on the Hopi Reservation with his father, the tribal police chief. Pete Lansa is investigating the murder of a man found near a sacred site--Prophecy Rock, and some on the rez suspect it's the work of a powaqu,a powerful witch. When Will does some independent investigating with the help of his new friend, Ellie, he quickly gets caught up in ancient prophecies and mystical visions. In doing so, he begins to understand the Hopi culture and his place in it. However, someone doesn't want him meddling in this murder, and now his life is in danger. In Prophecy Rock, Rob MacGregor, a New York Times bestselling author (Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade), weaves elements of Hopi mythology with modern police work to create a mystery that readers of all ages won't be able to put down.
