"Navajo police officers Joe Leaphorn (now retired) and Jim Chee (now a sergeant) are united in the latest in Hillerman's award-winning series. This case involves a decades-old airplane crash near the Grand Canyon, a woman's attempt to reclaim a lost legacy, and missing diamonds. As a young Hopi man tries to pawn a valuable diamond, he sets in motion a chain of events that ends at the bottom of the Grand Canyon. Leaphorn interviews an old acquaintance to build a sequence of related occurrences. Chee helps his friend, Cowboy Dashee, clear the Hopi charged in the theft. George Guidall does an excellent job as reader. He navigates the Navajo words easily and gives each character a distinctive sound. R.C.G. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine"
