Legendary tribal sleuths Leaphorn and Chee are back! The supremely talented daughter of New York Times bestselling author Tony Hillerman continues his popular series with this fresh, new mysteryA??her debut novelA??filled with captivating lore, startling suspense, bold new characters, vivid color, and rich atmosphere. It happened in an instant: After a breakfast with colleagues, Navajo Nation Police Officer Bernadette Manuelito sees a sedan career into the parking lot and hears a crack of gunfire. When the dust clears, someone very close to her is lying on the asphalt in a pool of blood. With the victim in the hospital fighting for his life, every person in the squad and the local FBI office is hell-bent on catching the gunman. Bernie, too, wants in on the investigation, despite regulations strictly forbidding eyewitness involvement. Her superior may have ordered her to take some leave, but that doesn't mean she's going to sit idly by, especially when her husband, Sergeant Jim Chee, is put in charge of finding the shooter. Pooling their skills, Bernie and Chee discover that a cold case involving Chee's former boss and partner, retired lieutenant Joe Leaphorn, may hold the key to the shooting. Digging into the old investigation with discriminating eyes and a fervent urgency, husband and wife find themselves inching closer to the truth with every clue . . . and closer to a killer who will do anything to prevent justice from taking its course.

Professional reviews

"Christina Delaine adopts a lilting accent for the Navajo characters in this first book by Tony HillermanÕs daughter, which continues his popular series with detectives Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee. This aural demarcation between Navajo and non-Native characters may be of particular assistance to newcomers to the series. Navajo Nation police officer Bernadette Manualito witnesses the shooting of someone she greatly admires. While being a witness removes her from the official investigation, she finds ways to stay involved with the case. DelaineÕs narration is imbued with respect for the culture and a sense of fondness for the characters. She depicts Bernie as a sensitive young woman but, at the same time, a polished professional. Delaine is equally adept at reflecting the age of the elders. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
