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.

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.

One of the darkest

I've struggled with this one of Hillerman's great Chee/Leaphorn novels for years. It's literally off the rez. Which I'm always uneasy about.
That said, it's still a critical piece in the development of Jim Chee. And George Guidall always sounds like the voice of these early stories.

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.

My first Hillerman/Guidal listen.

I loved it! Now trying to decide on which in the series to choose next. What a wonderful, difficult task!

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.

Twists and turns!

Chee's pursuit of a lost Navajo high schooler intertwines with the murder of her grandfather and the prosecution of a mafia company. very exciting and interesting look at Navajo customs!

Tony Hillerman

I have always liked this author for his descriptive writing of the Navaho ways. He brigs you into the story like you are a part of the Navaho way.

Always a pleasure

Always love the scenic descriptions embedded in Hillerman's well-plotted stories. Most of all I enjoy the warmth of his main characters. The stories are always a pleasure.
