    Navajo Nation Police Officer Bernadette Manualito witnesses the cold-blooded shooting of someone very close to her. With the victim fighting for his life, the entire squad and the local FBI office are hell-bent on catching the gunman. Bernie, too, wants in on the investigation, despite regulations forbidding eyewitness involvement. But that doesn't mean she's going to sit idly by, especially when her husband, Sergeant Jim Chee, is in charge of finding the shooter. Bernie and Chee discover that a cold case involving his former boss and partner, retired Inspector Joe Leaphorn, may hold the key.

    Story

    This is a weak book. The plot was okay and it had a Southwestern ambiance was there, but it was almost impossible to get by the horrible narration.

    A lot of the Navajo sounded mispronounced to me and the Navajo accent was way off (I have lived and worked in the Southwest for many years and have had many Navajo coworkers). Even some of the Spanish was mispronounced. The Navajos, especially the Captain, sounded more like Italian mobsters than anything else. All-in-all, I had a terrible time getting past the narration to hear the story. Some of the characters were weak and stereotyped.

    I hope this writer tries again and goes on to develop a stronger voice. I hope either the narrator does more research on how words and place names are pronounced. It was a decent first effort to fill some mighty big shoes, marred by the worst narration I have come across on Audible.
