We will be launching a NEW online catalogue on April 6th. To accommodate this and other changes, the Library will be closed from March 30th to April 5th. During the closure, this website will not be available and members will not be able to place holds or renew items. Your saved lists and shelf information will be available in the new catalogue. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your patience.
The car fire didn't kill Navajo Tribal Policeman Delbert Nez, a bullet did. Officer Jim Chee's good friend Del lies dead, and a whiskey-soaked Navajo shaman is found with the murder weapon. The old man is Ashie Pinto. He's quickly arrested for homicide and defended by a woman Chee could either love or loathe. But when Pinto won't utter a word of confession or denial, Lt. Joe Leaphorn begins an investigation. Soon, Leaphorn and Chee unravel a complex plot of death involving an historical find, a lost fortune...and the mythical Coyote, who is always waiting, and always hungry.
