The Blevinses continue this series (The Darkness Rolling, 2015, etc.) by expanding on some surrealistically weird details of Wright’s actual life while adding a spiritual dimension they would like readers to take seriously. Few will accept this invitation.

Synopsis

When Navajo detective Yazzie Goldman sees a hood hassling an old man, he has no idea what a long fall into trouble it heralds.

The old man turns out to be none other than the most famous architect in the world, Frank Lloyd Wright. Wright e is carrying the sketches for his most important building, the Guggenheim Museum. Some bad people are after him: A Chicago gangster wants Wright to pay back money he's borrowed. One of Wright's apprentices wants to steal the drawings and sell them. So does the son of the gangster.

Yazzie agrees to protect Wright. In the process he brings the architect into his Santa Fe home, endangering his family. John Ford is shooting a movie in Monument Valley, and luckily, the star of the movie, John Wayne, helps Yazzie ride against the bad guys.

Ending in a startling confrontation, Win Blevins and Meredith Blevins's Stealing Fire is a thriller of psychology, Navajo mysticism, and murder.

At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
