When two corpses appear amid stolen goods and bones at an ancient burial site, Navajo Tribal Policemen Lt. Joe Leaphorn and Officer Jim Chee must plunge into the past to unearth the astonishing truth behind a mystifying series of horrific murders.
NinaBryna (Israel) (2011/04/08): I liked the book very much. I had some Navaho (Dineh) friends in the U.S., and Hillerman's books are not hoked up and very well informed. It was nice and suspenseful until the denoueument, and the touches of humor were an added benefit. This was my first Hillerman and I am working my way through the series, Recommended highly.
