I enjoyed the setting and the background of the area and the people. The characters are some of my favorites in mystery and it is always a good time to be with them as they work through the puzzle that are the people around them. I can't say that the ending was a surprise, but I enjoyed working up to it with Bernie.

The latest Leaphorn, Chee & Manuelito novel in series. Bernie finds herself going undercover for 24 hrs to get the info she needs to break up a drug ring on the Navajo Nation. She gets into a mess when her cover is blown. An interesting story of saving herself and accomplishing her task. Meanwhile, Chee finds a dead body while searching for a sacred cave while on a spiritual journey. He is called upon to help the local Navajo police in trying to discover who is responsible. He figures it out, but finds himself in a touchy situation. An interesting read, as usual but a little too unrealistic in the way everything tied up so well in the end.Kirkus: Even though he sorely needs a break from his job with the Navajo Nation police, Sgt. Jim Chee, hiking the area around Lake Powell alone, really misses his wife, Officer Bernadette Manuelito. Little does he know that their separation is about to get much more fraught.A fresh corpse Jim finds in the lake turns out to be that of Curtis Walker, the younger brother of Bernie?s clan brother, Doug Walker. At first glance Curtis appears to have drowned, and no wonder, since he couldn?t swim. But he?s actually died from head injuries inflicted before he tumbled into the lake. Deputized by Park Service chief ranger Ted Morris to put a sympathetic face on the questions that must be put to Doug?s Navajo connections, Jim finds himself with an embarrassment of riches, since Doug?s work with Laguna Blue Watercraft Sales and Rental, his brother?s Antelope Canyon Tours, and aging archaeologist Dr. Peter Hendrix provide possible motives for his murder ranging from bad romance to ecopolitics. While Jim is talking to a bevy of interested parties, Bernie is plopped into a case of her own when a hitchhiker who?s pleaded for her help is run over repeatedly by a Mercedes that speeds away before she can identify the driver. Because of persistent rumors of skulduggery at Dino Begay Perez?s K?? Hemp Farm, a task force is assembled to investigate possible links between KHF and the dead man, and Bernie?s asked to go undercover as a casual worker at the farm to gather information. What, as even she wonders explicitly, could go wrong?An overcrowded, overplotted, and depressingly timely mashup of personal and systemic crimes.… (mere)

A lot happening in her latest book. Had to keep all the stories straight. The murderer in the main story was easy to figure out and I knew before it was revealed.

Uncovering new information about the astronomer?s work leads Bernie to a remote spot on the Navajo Nation and a calculating killer.The investigation causes an unexpected rift with her husband and new acting boss, Jim Chee, who?s sure Bernie?s headed for trouble.

Joe?s been hired to find a missing biil, a traditional dress that had been donated to the Navajo Nation. His investigation takes a sinister turn when the leading suspect dies under mysterious circumstances and Leaphorn himself receives anonymous warnings to bewareÂ¥witchcraft is afoot.While the veteran detective is busy working to untangle his strange case, his former colleague Jim Chee and Officer Bernie Manuelito are collecting evidence they hope will lead to a cunning criminal behind a rash of burglaries. Their case takes a complicated turn when Bernie finds a body near a popular running trail. The situation grows more complicated when the death is ruled a homicide, and the Tribal cops are thrust into a turf battle because the murder involves the FBI.As Leaphorn, Chee, and Bernie draw closer to solving these crimes, their parallel investigations begin to merge . . . and offer an unexpected opportunity that opens a new chapter in Bernie?s life.
