Chee’s journey takes a deadly turn when, after a prayerful visit to the sacred Rainbow Bridge, he spots a body floating in the lake. The dead man, a Navajo with a passion for the canyon’s ancient rock art, lived a life filled with many secrets. Discovering why he died and who was responsible involves Chee in an investigation that puts his own life at risk.

The search to find the killer leads her to uncover a dangerous chain of interconnected revelations involving a Navajo Nation cannabis enterprise. But the evil that is unleashed jeopardizes her mother and sister Darleen, and puts Bernie in the deadliest situation of her law enforcement career.
Excellent book! The intricacies of family, both Navaho and Chinese, entwined with life on the reservation, Covid and Lake Powell.
I loved this book! It has 2 great story lines going on at the same time. Both had me sitting on the edge of my seat. I love the characters and as always the storyline of the Navajo Nation and all that it entails.
This book was very good. Lots of mystery. Anne is as great a writer as her father. I have read most of her work, and look forward to the next book.
Anne Hillerman is an exceptional author carrying on the tradition and writing style of her late father Tony Hillerman. Her stories are entertaining, well crafted and true to the Navajo way of life.
