Hillerman always has a surprise, a twist in the story that keeps you in suspense. I like the history, issues, customs of the Native Americans that weave in and out of the story and which makes each book so atypical of "regular" mysteries.

Another great story told by Tony Hillerman about Jim Chee and the Navajo Tribal Police. I love this series and learn something every time I read on of them.

Interesting tale about drug runners on the Hopi-Navajo reservation. Tony Hillerman makes mention that Hopi theology as represented in this novel may not be perfectly accurate.

Jim Chee is one of the great American literary characters ever created. The story was taut, suspensful and satisfying to the end.
