Publisher's Summary

First in a new series for listeners who like Janet Evanovich and Tony Hillerman. 

On the edge of the Navajo Nation, rookie paralegal Naomi Manymules pauses on a lakeside clifftop to enjoy a moonlit moment. She hears someone swimming in the darkness far below her, and a boat drifts out of the shadows. When she glimpses something that might be a naked butt shining in the moonlight, she decides to head for home. 

What she saw was the bare behind of a murdered local sleaze. His passing upsets exactly no one, but his wife can offer only a coyote for an alibi. The police aren't inclined to look much further for a suspect. That leaves Naomi and her new boss, attorney Grant Carson, to take up sleuthing. They navigate through a colorful assortment of criminals, surly teenagers, prominent locals, and a mobster or two and become targets themselves. 

Meet the sleuths: Naomi Manymules is bluffing her way into a new paralegal career for which she is not entirely qualified. Luckily, she is smart and feisty and has lived in Sage Landing all her life, so she knows just about everything that goes on here on the western edge of the Navajo Nation. She has also got some training and a lot of motivation. As a divorced, 30-something mom of two, she needs a steady job and wants a stable career. 

Grant Carson is middle-aged, cynical, and handsomely scruffy. He is a reluctant attorney, a tough ex-prosecutor from Phoenix who has escaped to a remote lakeside town to practice just enough law to augment his small pension. Since arriving in Sage Landing, he's kept company with some attractive women, but the real passion of his life now is his old yacht, the Deep Inn.

bad voices

just wish narrator would just read the book. trying to make up voices is very annoying. hard to listen to. ruins my own images of the characters.
