Christina Delaine adopts a lilting accent for the Navajo characters in this first book by Tony Hillerman's daughter, which continues his popular series with detectives Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee. This aural demarcation between Navajo and non-Native characters may be of particular assistance to newcomers to the series. Navajo Nation police officer Bernadette Manualito witnesses the shooting of someone she greatly admires. While being a witness removes her from the official investigation, she finds ways to stay involved with the case. Delaine's narration is imbued with respect for the culture and a sense of fondness for the characters. She depicts Bernie as a sensitive young woman but, at the same time, a polished professional. Delaine is equally adept at reflecting the age of the elders. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2013]
