Tony Hillerman pleases followers of his Navajo Tribal Police stories by neatly involving both Lt. Jim Chee, now a supervisor, and the "legendary lieutenant" Joe Leaphorn, now retired, in another case. Investigations of the murder of a Navajo policeman and the disappearance of a biologist doing research on plague-carrying fleas preoccupy the law officers. After having narrated 11 of Hillerman's mysteries, Guidall picks up the story like an old friend. His narration is smooth and polished as he eloquently delivers Hillerman's appealing mix of the traditional and modern worlds of the Southwest. This story is particularly slow moving, even for Hillerman, and seems to signal more changes to come in the characters' lives and relationships.
