Description

Narrated by Jessica Matten, star of the AMC series DARK WINDS, based on the Leaphorn, Chee & Manuelito novels

"Anne Hillerman is a star."—J. A. Jance, New York Times bestselling author

From New York Times bestselling author Anne Hillerman, a thrilling and moving chapter in the Leaphorn, Chee & Manuelito series involving several emotionally complex cases that will test the detectives in different ways.

Joe Leaphorn may be long retired from the Navajo Tribal Police, but his detective skills are still sharp, honed by his work as a private detective. His experience will be essential to solve a compelling new case: finding the birth parents of a woman who was raised by a bilagáana family but believes she is Diné based on one solid clue, an old photograph with a classic Navajo child's blanket. Leaphorn discovers that his client's adoption was questionable, and her adoptive family not what they seem. His quest for answers takes him to an old trading post and leads him to a deadly cache of long-buried family secrets.

As that case grows more complicated, Leaphorn receives an unexpected call from a person he met decades earlier. Cecil Bowleg's desperation is clear in his voice, but just as he begins to explain, the call is cut off by an explosion and Cecil disappears. True to his nature, Leaphorn is determined to find the truth even as the situation grows dangerous. Investigation of the explosion falls in part to Officer Bernadette Manuelito, who discovers an unexpected link to Cecil's missing wife.

Bernie also is involved in a troubling investigation of her own: an elderly weaver whose prize-winning sheep have been ruthlessly killed by feral dogs.

Exploring the emotionally complex issues of adoption of Indigenous children by non-native parents, Anne Hillerman delivers another thought-provoking, gripping mystery that brings to life the vivid terrain of the American Southwest, its people, and the lore and traditions that make it distinct.

        April 8, 2024
        The multilayered latest entry in Hillerman’s long-running series featuring New Mexico Navajo investigators Joe Leaphorn, Jim Chee, and Bernadette Manuelito (after The Way of the Bear) is as vibrant as ever. PI Leaphorn is on the phone with new client Cecil Bowlegs, who’s hoping to track down his errant wife, when an explosion on Bowlegs’s end of the line disrupts the conversation. Tribal Police officer Manuelito is assigned to assist the FBI in their investigation of the explosion—which occurred in the a Navajo school Bowlegs was standing near—with police lieutenant Chee providing occasional support when he’s not tied up with administrative headaches or helping a local weaver keep her sheep safe from feral dogs. Meanwhile, Leaphorn juggles a second case in which he helps a young woman track down her biological parents, who may be Navajo, though she was raised white. As each inquiry unfolds, Leaphorn, Chee, and Manuelito uncover links between them, with the truth about Bowlegs’s wife a potential linchpin. Hillerman draws deeply from her characters’ well-worn dynamics without getting too bogged down in past story lines, making this a treat for newcomers and long-haulers alike. It’s a pleasure to spend time with Hillerman’s upstanding investigative trio.

      • content: Jessica Matten, a Canadian actor of Red River MŽtis and Cree heritage, deftly narrates the ninth installment in this series, drawing from her role as Officer Bernadette Manuelito in the DARK WINDS streaming series. Matten skillfully conveys the full range of emotions of the characters, young and old, illuminating the complex dynamics of family relationships. Former tribal policeman Joe Leaphorn, now a P.I., takes on two challenging cases: Finding the missing wife of a young man from his past and searching for the birth parents of a "lost bird," a Native American adopted by white parents. Matten subtly differentiates characters and keeps listeners engaged by heightening the tension of the action scenes. Her performance underscores the cultural insights of the narrative, ensuring an immersive and memorable listening experience. E.Q. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine
