Without a single clue, Chee and Leaphorn must follow a serpentine trail through the Indian clans and nations, seeking the thread that links two brutal murders, a missing teenager, a band of lobbyists trying to put a toxic dump site on Pueblo land, and an invaluable memento given to the tribes by Abraham Lincoln in a fast-paced, flawless mystery that is Hillerman at his lyrical, evocative, spellbinding best.

Please have George Guidall read all the books
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
The title says it all. I love the books, but Baskous's reading ruins the books for me.

Even better second time around
I know I listened to this some time ago, but didn't review it at that time. Since then I've become more critical, and it's wonderful that I can stand to listen to anything twice. I really enjoyed this book because 1) I like the way Hillerman moves the action and detection processes along; not a lot of violent action, but keeps things hopping. 2) I get so impatient with books that spend a lot of time with the heroes mucking around in irrelevant emotional riprap. I actually find Jim Chee's trains of thought to be amusing, rather than distracting, simply because, once again, Hillerman moves it along. 3) When I read a mystery/detective novel, I'm not trying to find out all the intimate details of everyone's love life. This book actually has two romances going on, but they added a bit of fun rather than annoying me. In fact, I think they're about the most romantic scenes I've ever read.
At some point George Guidall and Christian Baskous apparently gave up producing these wonderful unabridged audiobooks. I hope one or the other or both of them will pick it up again. Perhaps it was a Hillerman heirs' decision, but I hope they'll get back with the program soon. I've found some of the others on CD, but usually they're abridged, and I can't listen to them on my iPod, so, you know. . .
