Description


Officer Bernadette Manuelito found the dead man slumped over in the cab of a blue pickup abandoned in a dry gulch off a dirt road—with a rich ex-con's phone number in his pocket ... and a tobacco tin nearly filled with tracer gold. It's her initial mishandling of the scene that spell trouble for her supervisor, Sgt. Jim Chee of the Navajo Tribal Police—but it's the echoes of a long ago crime that call the legendary former Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn out of retirement. Years earlier, Leaphorn followed the trail of a beautiful, young, and missing wife to a dead end, and his failure has haunted him ever since. But ghosts never sleep in these high, lonely Southwestern hills. And the twisted threads of craven murders past and current may finally be coming together, thanks to secrets once moaned in torment on the desert wind.

About the Author


Tony Hillerman (1925-2008) was a resident of Albuquerque, New Mexico, and the author of thirty-two books: the popular eighteen-volume mystery series featuring Navajo police officers Jim Chee and Joe Leaphorn, two novels, two children's books, and ten nonfiction works. Hillerman received every major honor for mystery fiction, including in 2008 the Western Writers of America's Wister Award for Lifetime Achievement. He served as president of the prestigious Mystery Writers of America and was honored with that group's Edgar Award and as one of mystery fiction's Grand Masters. In 2001 his memoir, Seldom Disappointed, won both the Anthony and Agatha Awards for best nonfiction.
