Description

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Legendary Navajo policeman Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn takes center stage in this riveting atmospheric mystery from New York Times bestselling author Anne Hillerman that combines crime, superstition, and tradition and brings the desert Southwest vividly alive.

Joe Leaphorn may have retired from the Tribal Police, but he finds himself knee-deep in a perplexing case involving a priceless artifact—a reminder of a dark time in Navajo history. Joe's been hired to find a missing biil, a traditional dress that had been donated to the Navajo Nation. His investigation takes a sinister turn when the leading suspect dies under mysterious circumstances and Leaphorn himself receives anonymous warnings to beware—witchcraft is afoot.

While the veteran detective is busy working to untangle his strange case, his former colleague Jim Chee and Officer Bernie Manuelito are collecting evidence they hope will lead to a cunning criminal behind a rash of burglaries. Their case takes a complicated turn when Bernie finds a body near a popular running trail. The situation grows more complicated when the death is ruled a homicide, and the Tribal cops are thrust into a turf battle because the murder involves the FBI.

As Leaphorn, Chee, and Bernie draw closer to solving these crimes, their parallel investigations begin to merge . . . and offer an unexpected opportunity that opens a new chapter in Bernie's life.

        Starred review from April 1, 2019

        Hillerman (Cave of Bones) presents the fifth in her series featuring retired Navajo policeman Joe Leaphorn and officers Jim Chee and Bernie Manuelito. Each is investigating a crime within the Navajo Nation. As a favor to a friend, Leaphorn is looking into the disappearance of a priceless, sacred artifact, a traditional dress dating back to the Long Walk, when the Navajo were forcibly removed from their homeland. A series of robberies and a shooting are the focus for Chee. And Manuelito becomes entangled with the FBI when she discovers a body while on a running trail. Mysterious deaths, lies, and secrets plague the investigators. Nevertheless, their diligent efforts uncover clues that assist them in unraveling each of the cases, and all are guided by the history and culture of the Navajo. VERDICT Hillerman's writing becomes stronger with every new installment in the series, deepening the development of each character. Fans will be intrigued by the intertwining stories that keep them guessing. The picturesque Southwest, as well as the history of the Navajo, come through on each page.--Patricia Ann Owens, formerly at Illinois Eastern Community Coll., Mt. Carmel
