Navajo Tribal cops Jim Chee and Bernadette Manuelito, and the legendary Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn, are back in this exciting Southwestern mystery from the New York Times bestselling author of Spider Woman's Daughter
Doing a good deed for a relative offers the perfect opportunity for Sergeant Jim Chee and his wife, Officer Bernie Manuelito, to get away from the daily grind of police work. But two cases will call them back from their vacation and separate them one near Shiprock, and the other at iconic Monument Valley.
Chee follows a series of seemingly random, cryptic clues that lead to a missing woman, a coldblooded thug, and a mysterious mound of dirt and rocks that could be a gravesite. Bernie has her hands full managing the fallout from a drug bust gone wrong, uncovering the origins of a fire in the middle of nowhere, and looking into an ambitious solar energy development with long-ranging consequences for Navajo land.
Under the guidance of retired Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn, Bernie and Chee will navigate unexpected obstacles as they confront their greatest challenge yet."
