Sergeant Jim Chee's vacation to beautiful Antelope Canyon and Lake Powell has a deeper purpose. He's on a quest to unravel a sacred mystery his mentor, the Legendary Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn, stumbled across decades earlier. Chee's journey takes a deadly turn when, after a prayerful visit to the sacred Rainbow Bridge, he spots a body floating in the lake. The dead man, a Navajo with a passion for the canyon's ancient rock art, lived a life filled with many secrets. Discovering why he died and who was responsible involves Chee in an investigation that puts his own life at risk. Back in Shiprock, Officer Bernadette Manuelito is driving home when she witnesses an expensive sedan purposely kill a hitchhiker. The search to find the killer leads her to uncover a dangerous chain of interconnected revelations involving a Navajo Nation cannabis enterprise. But the evil that is unleashed jeopardizes her mother and sister Darleen, and puts Bernie in the deadliest situation of her law enforcement career.… (mais)

The latest Leaphorn, Chee & Manuelito novel in series. Bernie finds herself going undercover for 24 hrs to get the info she needs to break up a drug ring on the Navajo Nation. She gets into a mess when her cover is blown. An interesting story of saving herself and accomplishing her task. Meanwhile, Chee finds a dead body while searching for a sacred cave while on a spiritual journey. He is called upon to help the local Navajo police in trying to discover who is responsible. He figures it out, but finds himself in a touchy situation. An interesting read, as usual but a little too unrealistic in the way everything tied up so well in the end.Kirkus: Even though he sorely needs a break from his job with the Navajo Nation police, Sgt. Jim Chee, hiking the area around Lake Powell alone, really misses his wife, Officer Bernadette Manuelito. Little does he know that their separation is about to get much more fraught.A fresh corpse Jim finds in the lake turns out to be that of Curtis Walker, the younger brother of Bernie?s clan brother, Doug Walker. At first glance Curtis appears to have drowned, and no wonder, since he couldn?t swim. But he?s actually died from head injuries inflicted before he tumbled into the lake. Deputized by Park Service chief ranger Ted Morris to put a sympathetic face on the questions that must be put to Doug?s Navajo connections, Jim finds himself with an embarrassment of riches, since Doug?s work with Laguna Blue Watercraft Sales and Rental, his brother?s Antelope Canyon Tours, and aging archaeologist Dr. Peter Hendrix provide possible motives for his murder ranging from bad romance to ecopolitics. While Jim is talking to a bevy of interested parties, Bernie is plopped into a case of her own when a hitchhiker who?s pleaded for her help is run over repeatedly by a Mercedes that speeds away before she can identify the driver. Because of persistent rumors of skulduggery at Dino Begay Perez?s K?? Hemp Farm, a task force is assembled to investigate possible links between KHF and the dead man, and Bernie?s asked to go undercover as a casual worker at the farm to gather information. What, as even she wonders explicitly, could go wrong?An overcrowded, overplotted, and depressingly timely mashup of personal and systemic crimes.

(2022) Chee is accidentally brought into an investigation of a suspicious death of a man involved in starting up an archeological tourism company. Turns out he was murdered by a family friend who thought he was intruding in the family and cheating with his wife. Bernie goes undercover to try to resolve the hit and run death she witnesses of an Asian man. He turns out to be a chemist/botanist who was working for a cannibas company that was into more than medicinal cures. This book is one of the lamest and weakest of the books written by Anne. Too many coincidences, lack of logic and just plain too convenient of plot twists. Didn't really like it very much.KIRKUS: Even though he sorely needs a break from his job with the Navajo Nation police, Sgt.

Melodramatic, and the dialog was wooden. Not for me. I only read a little over one half. ( )
