Acting Lieutenant Jim Chee of the Navajo Tribal Police is working on what he believes to be a cut and dried case when he finds a Hopi preacher huddled over the corpse. In the mean time, retired fellow officer Joe Leaphorn has been hired to investigate the disappearance of a biologist. When a Navajo skinwalker enters the picture, Leaphorn and Chee are drawn into a complicated and deadly investigation of these seemingly related cases.
This novel also contains an excerpt from Tony Hillerman's autobiography, Seldom Disappointed.
