Reunited by a grave robber and a corpse, Navajo Tribal Police Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn is trying to determine the identity of a murder victim, while Officer Jim Chee is arresting Smithsonian conservator Henry Highhawk for ransacking the sacred bones of his ancestors.
But with each peeled-back layer, it becomes shockingly clear that these two cases are mysteriously connected - and that others are pusuing Highhawk, with lethal intentions. And the search for answers to a deadly puzzle is pulling Leaphorn and Chee into the perilous arena of superstition, ancient ceremony, and living gods.

Navajo Nation lives
All of Tony Hillerman's books about the Navajo land are good. This one brings Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee to the Nation's capital to find out why a body appears in Navajo Land that traces back to Washington D.C. Neither are happy to be away from the Sacred Mountains. The narrator does okay but he isn't George Guidall. I heard most of these stories read by Guidall and it really spoils you. The story is very good . . . the narrator leaves much to be desired. It's hard to tell who is talking because most of the voices sound the same . . . maybe a southern drawl but the sound is the same.
