Both Leaphorn and Chee are in Washington, DC for most of this novel, which makes it a bit different from others I've read by the author. The plot is complex and engaging.

This is a vivid picture of the life of the wife of Harold Godwin, but even more importantly, she was the wife of Griffith, Prince of Wales before she married Harold. The events leading up to the Battle of Hastings really come alive, and the woman's point of view is fascinating.
