Wow. I really enjoyed this book. I enjoy Tony Hillerman and have enjoyed a previous series by Mitchell about Basques in Nevada, if I recall correctly. In this one, a veteran Comanche BIA cop and a female rookie Modoc FBI agent team up to investigate a murder that turns out to be involved with Indian casinos. The Indian culture and its influence on the thinking of the cops and the bad guys is fascinating.

I also was extremely interested in the setting in the high California desert (a favorite location for Mitchell) and on the Havasupai reservation in the bottom of the Grand Canyon.

I highly recommend this book and can't wait for the next one in the series to come in the mail--I just ordered it.
