Reunited by a grave robber and a corpse, Navajo Tribal Police Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn is trying to determine the identity of a murder victim, while Officer Jim Chee is arresting Smithsonian conservator Henry Highhawk for ransacking the sacred bones of his ancestors.
But with each peeled-back layer, it becomes shockingly clear that these two cases are mysteriously connected--and that others are pursuing Highhawk, with lethal intentions. And the search for answers to a deadly puzzle is pulling Leaphorn and Chee into the perilous arena of superstition, ancient ceremony, and living gods.
“Suddenly now Hillerman has become a national literary and cultural sensation . . . it does not take too much to determine why Hillerman has become so popular. He is a solid, down-to-earth storyteller.”
-Los Angeles Times
“Woven as tightly as a Navajo blanket.”
“For the many enthusiastic fans of Tony Hillerman’s previous mystery novels, including A Thief of Time, only one thing needs to be said: Talking God is the best one yet!”
