Publisher's Summary

For Sergeant Jim Chee of the Navajo Tribal Police, the case begins when he finds a pair of boots in the rabbit brush beside a wilderness trail. The boots' owner lies nearby, his palms and soles "scalped" in what appears to be a witch's scavenging. The federal investigators tell Chee to mind his own business. But a series of disturbing events draws Chee into a dangerous web of intrigue spun by Navajo sorcery and white greed.

Excellent complicated mystery

Even though I guessed the villain well before the end, I really appreciated the way the various story lines interwove. Also, I appreciate the more formal character interactions than we find in other mystery/crime novels these days. I don't need to hear about the emotional life of the characters from potty training to passionate young love in order to understand and solve the mystery being detailed. I sometimes wonder whether all the cultural details are accurate, but I understand that Hillerman was well grounded in those matters, and doubt he'd feel the need to invent much. Such a pleasure. I have the entire series, tough not all are audio, and some of the audios are only available on CD. I hope Audible will eventually produce more of them.
