Two Native-American boys have vanished into thin air, leaving a pool of blood behind them. Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn of the Navajo Tribal Police has no choice but to suspect the very worst, since the blood that stains the parched New Mexican ground once flowed through the veins of one of the missing, a young ZuNi. But his investigation into a terrible crime is being complicated by an important archaeological dig and a steel hypodermic needle. And the unique laws and sacred religious rites of the ZuNi people are throwing impassable roadblocks in Leaphorn's already twisted path, enabling a craven murderer to elude justice or, worse still, to kill again.

"The gifted George Guidall has narrated all of Hillerman's work, and his expertise is clear even in this early installment in the author's Joe Leaphorn novels. When a Zuni boy is found dead and a Navajo boy goes missing, it's up to Leaphorn to uncover the dark forces at work. Guidall's calm cadence and intense pacing highlight both the plot's sinister underpinnings and the novel's stunning setting. Most importantly, Guidall's delivery echoes Hillerman's own careful work--Guidall's narration of the Navajo, Zuni, and even hippie characters captures the complex relationships and tension present in these communities.
