Reissued to tie-in with Hillerman's Coyote Waits. Tribal policeman Jim Chee goes after a killer-and on an odyssey of murder and revenge that moves from an Indian hogan and its trapped ghost to the dark underbelly of LA to a healing ceremony whose cure could be death. "A first-rate story of suspense and mystery"-The New Yorker. Old Joseph Joe sees it all. Two strangers spill blood at the Shiprock Wash-O-Mat. One dies. The other drives off into the dry lands of the big reservation, but not before he shows the old Navajo a photo of the man he seeks. This is all Tribal policeman Jim Chee needs to set him off on an odyssey that moves from a trapped ghost in an Indian hogan to the seedy underbelly of L.A. to an ancient healing ceremony where death is the cure, and into the dark heart of murder and revenge

I have a hard time giving a mystery a '5'. I haven't given any of Hillerman's other mysteries a '5' (and I like Hillerman a lot). This one deserves a '5'.

Written in 1984, this is book 6 of the 18 Leaphorn / Chee novels. In it, Hillerman fleshes out the character and temperament of Jim Chee.

Because Officer Jim Chee of the Navajo Police listens to everything witnesses have to say (in contrast to his belagana counterparts who are too impatient) he is able to piece together information that leads him to missing persons, hit men, and an international car-theft ring.
