Publisher's Summary

Navajo tribal cops Jim Chee and Bernadette Manuelito and their mentor, the legendary Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn, investigate two perplexing cases in this exciting Southwestern mystery from the New York Times best-selling author of Spider Woman's Daughter.
Doing a good deed for a relative offers the perfect opportunity for Sergeant Jim Chee and his wife, Officer Bernie Manuelito, to get away from the daily grind of police work. But two cases will call them back from their short vacation and separate them - one near Shiprock and the other at iconic Monument Valley.
Chee follows a series of seemingly random and cryptic clues that lead to a missing woman, a coldblooded thug, and a mysterious mound of dirt and rocks that could be a gravesite. Bernie has her hands full managing the fallout from a drug bust gone wrong, uncovering the origins of a fire in the middle of nowhere, and looking into an ambitious solar energy development with long-ranging consequences for Navajo land.
Under the guidance of their mentor, retired Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn, Bernie and Chee will navigate unexpected obstacles and confront the greatest challenge yet to their skills, commitment, and courage.

The Navajo Police save the day again

The story follows the line of the other Hillerman novels with all the characters that we love. The reading of the Navajo words and accents of the Navajo people were very distracting to me. I wish they would find a native reader for these novels!!

very disappointed

Would you ever listen to anything by Anne Hillerman again?

Maybe, I love reading about the Southwest. I looked forward to listening to this book but was very disappointed.


How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator read the conversation in a slooooooow "Native American" dialect...giving the wrong impression of her characters.
