The victim, well dressed but stripped of identification, is found at the edge of the vast Jicarilla Apache natural gas field just inside the jurisdiction of the Navajo Tribal Police, facing Sergeant Jim Chee with a complex puzzle. Why did the Washington office of the FBI snatch custody of this case from its local agents, cover it with secrecy, and call it a hunting accident? What was the victim seeking among the maze of pipelines and pumping stations in America's largest gas field? Was he investigating the embezzlement of billions of dollars from the Indian Tribal royalty trust in the Department of the Interior? On a level nearer to Chee's heart, did the photographs Bernie Manuelito took on an exotic game ranch near the Mexican border reveal something connected with this crime? Did Bernie, once a member of Chee's squad but now a rookie Border Patrol Officer, put herself in terrible danger? Tony Hillerman leads his readers through another of his intricate plots to the solution of this crime, with a cast of vivid characters: a Washington political mogul and his more-or-less renegade pilot; a customs official who bends the rules; a Mexican smuggler with a conscience; and, finally, "Legendary Lieutenant" Joe Leaphorn, now retired, who connects the lines on a dusty old map to find the answers -- and the Sinister Pig -- among the great scimitar-horned oryx grazing on the historic Tuttle Ranch.… (mere)

Not my sort of plot at all, so I just quickly skimmed the book to keep up with the relationship between two of the characters. ( )

This is a crummy book. Hillerman is a great author but this is a crummy book. Unconvincing motivations, unconvincing actions, unconvincing dialogue. Near the end, a police officer does something that a police officer wouldn't do because A) a police officer would know better B) a police officer would know that it was an ambush C) this particular police officer has always been portrayed as smart and capable in previous books D) the action is clearly illegal and the police officer has no motive. You should read books 2 - 14 of the Leaphorn and Chee series. Many of them are great and the rest are good. You will be happier if you stop before reading "The Wailing Wind" but, if you love Hillerman as much as I do, you might find yourself unable to resist. You should definitely not read The Sinister Pig. ( )

It was easy for me to become immediately interested in this story, having read most of the early Hillerman novels featuring Chee and Leaphorn and other characters such as Cowboy Dashee and Bernie Manuelito. Bernie is a fun character and I consider her an interesting personality with a lovely, assertive personality. As a love interest for Chee, she was a vast improvement over Mary Landon and Janet Pete. The mystery and suspense built rather predictably but nonetheless, I found the narrative engaging. The book is staying in my collection of 'enjoyable light mysteries'.

I dithered between a 3½- or 4-star rating due to some seemingly-hurried writing of the narrative. The pace of each scenario feels a bit rushed rather than Hillerman's trademark philosophical discourse. As well, the story ended with some unresolved situations. For example, the reader doesn't have the satisfaction of knowing that the corrupt Ed Henry was apprehended as part of the drug ring round up, nor is it very evident what the Washington backstory was really all about with senators and congressmen. I don't recommend this novel as a reader's first experience of Tony Hillerman's Navajo series. Just about any of the others would be a better introduction to these mysteries. ( )

Amazon Description: The victim, well dressed but stripped of identification, is found at the edge of the vast Jicarilla Apache natural gas field just inside the jurisdiction of the Navajo Tribal Police, facing Sergeant Jim Chee with a complex puzzle.
Why did the Washington office of the FBI snatch custody of this case from its local agents, cover it with secrecy, and call it a hunting accident? What was the victim seeking among the maze of pipelines and pumping stations in America's largest gas field? Was he investigating the embezzlement of billions of dollars from the Indian Tribal royalty trust in the Department of the Interior?
On a level nearer to Chee's heart, did the photographs Bernie Manuelito took on an exotic game ranch near the Mexican border reveal something connected with this crime? Did Bernie, once a member of Chee's squad but now a rookie Border Patrol Officer, put herself in terrible danger?
Tony Hillerman leads his readers through another of his intricate plots to the solution of this crime, with a cast of vivid characters: a Washington political mogul and his more-or-less renegade pilot; a customs official who bends the rules; a Mexican smuggler with a conscience; and, finally, "Legendary Lieutenant" Joe Leaphorn, now retired, who connects the lines on a dusty old map to find the answers -- and the Sinister Pig -- among the great scimitar-horned oryx grazing on the historic Tuttle Ranch.

Another mystery from Tony Hillerman. Though Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee are two of the featured characters the book is more story driven than character driven. Since I have read this series out of order I didn’t feel as much suspense I would have had I read-in-order. Enjoyable read ( )
