Jim Chee, of the Navajo Tribal Police, a marvelous tracker and great listener, perceives things that are hidden from others. But his curiosity and attention to detail cost him time, and that translates to lack of respect in the office.
He is told to ignore everything that does not involve his own cases -- especially things that are not within tribal jurisdiction, specifically a drug smuggling ring that the FBI is chasing on the reservation.
But the vandalism, missing person, and theft cases that he is expected to solve keep linking back to the drug cartel's plane crash.
I especially enjoyed the scene where Jim Chee converses with an old Hopi traditionalist.
Very good mystery, interesting characters. Great setting.
