Publisher's Summary

An old man's hazy memory and a Polaroid snapshot are all Chee has to go on, but they are enough to send him deep into an underworld of murder and revenge when a shootout erupts between two strangers at the Shiprock Wash-O-Mat. One man dies, and the other drives off but not before showing old Joseph Joe a photograph of the man he is looking for. It's not much of a lead for Sergeant Chee, but it's enough to put him on the killer's trail.

©1984 Tony Hillerman (P)1990 Recorded Books, LLC

Wow - just wow!

I am listening to the series slowly and savoring them. This was a great book where Jim saves the life of a young woman in peril twisted into the deadly threads of this thriller. Surprised until the very last. Another great read - narration was excellent.

Traveling without leaving home

Hillerman and Guidall take you away from the routines of everyday life. His descriptions spoken by Guidall make you almost feel as if you can see the spacious country that surrounds Chee. Two incredibly gifted people I feel sad leaving at the end of each story.

Hillerman never disappoints!

These books have been part of life library for many years. Like old friends, I am enjoying them again on Audible. listening to them makes them just as fresh as the first time I experienced them. No matter your prior experience I highly recommend you listen to them again!

Another good one

Little different in that Leaphorn wasn't mentioned. Also the L.A. characters with the bombing thing, I am not sure how that played out. I was a little confused. Still a good read.

This Review Needs A Title...So, I Gave it One

Tribal Policeman, Jim Chee, sets off to chase a bad guy. The search takes jim and his 'res pickup truck to downtown L.A. and back. Jim meets Mary and falls for her. As always, we learn something about Navajo culture as the death revolves around a spirited hogan and the difference between reservation and outside Navajos. Entertaining book, more for it's culture than for it's whodunit genre. As always,Chee solves the mystery in both Indian and White Man ways.

Good Listen

I enjoy all of the Jim Chee and Joe Leaphorn books on tape. I listen to them again and again.
