I haven't been as big a fan of Tony Hillerman since Skinwalkers. I think he's lost the feeling of being in the desert, his knack for tight desciption, and lately his mysteries have been dull and preachy. I still read him hoping he'll get back to his old style, and this one is encouraging. I still don't get the feeling of being there, the way I used to, but I liked his characters better and the plot was strictly good guys vs. bad guys.

Three armed men raid the Ute tribe's gambling casino, and then disappear in the maze of canyons on the Utah-Arizona border. The FBI takes over the investigation and agents swarm in with helicopters and high-tech equipment. These experts devise a theory of the crime that makes a wounded deputy sheriff a suspect- which brings in Tribal Police Sergeant Jim Chee and his longtime colleague, retired Lt. Joe Leaphorn, to help. Best one of Tony Hillerman's good books that wwe've read so far.

Jim Chee and the legendary Lt Joe Leaphorn of the Navajo Tribal Ploice battle both the evil bad guys and the evil FBI agents. Leaphorn misses his wife Emma who died, and he is now involved with the local anthropologist Brof Bourebonette, while Che pursues Janet Burnedette. They solve another complex mystery on the reservation while the FBI runs in the wrong direction. Hillerman uses good anthropological information and tribal information giving a reallistic basis to his story.

Another Joe Leaphorn/Jim Chee adventure in Hillerman's beautiful Southwest Indian country. The two Navajo policemen, one young and the other supposedly retired, team up once more to solve not only a murder but a major casino heist. The always literate Hillerman always makes sure we learn something more of Navajo and Ute customs and their way of life. There's also the touch of romance for both men.
