Published online courtesy of Santa Fean, August/September, 2013

Mark Sublette, owner of the Mark Sublette Medicine Man Gallery on Canyon Road, recently released the second novel in his Charles Bloom murder mystery series, Kayenta Crossing, which follows 2012’s Paint by Numbers. (A third book is due next summer). The story centers on Dr. Carson Riddly, who, not long after setting up his family practice on the Navajo Reservation north of Kayenta, Arizona (one of the conditions of having received an Indian Health Service scholarship in medical school), finds himself called in as coroner on a murder scene. Riddly eventually joins forces with Charles Bloom -- an art dealer who owns a gallery in Santa Fe but lives on the reservation with his girlfriend, a talented Navajo weaver -- and together the two work to get to the bottom of the crime and other mysterious events.

Kayenta Crossing is illustrated with numerous photos taken by the author. For ordering and other information, visit
