Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn of the Navajo Police is looking for an excuse to get out of patrolling a Boy Scout encampment, so he goes looking through some cold case stuff. He finds the file on a double homicide that is still open. As he digs into the case, he is nearly killed by a crazy driver who laughs as he runs him down. And the more he looks, the more several unrelated cases seem to all tie together. Could a terrorist group be hiding out there in desert?

I really like this series. Taken individually, the stories are not necessarily the best. But the series as a whole is a little window into a different way of life, and I love the characters. I know the author is an Anglo from Oklahoma, so why he chose to write about the Southwest is a mystery. But from my perspective here in Utah, he does a great job of getting the feel just right. 3.5 stars
