The Dinee are alive and well, and all the old familiar names and places are present: Janet Pete and Mary Landon, old loves who haunt Sergeant Jim Chee; Dr. Louisa Bourebonette, confidante/companion to Lt. Joe Leaphorn, retired, of the Navajo Tribal Police; and Officer Bernadette Manuelito, who is beginning to have a major psychic impact on Jim Chee. George Guidall is once again masterful in this practiced combo of author and narrator. But this is a thin plot in which an old case is reopened several years after the fact by seemingly unrelated fresh murders motivated by gold lust. Guidall is totally convincing as the presenter of this cast of characters who have dwelled so long in our imaginations that the recycled plot is a disappointing contrast. M.D.H.
