It's never a surprise to fans of the Leaphorn/Chee/Manuelito series when any one of the characters stumbles across a dead body--but this installment involves two characters and two bodies. Nonetheless, listeners won't be confused by the dual plotlines. At the outset, Navajo Tribal Police detective Jim Chee's vacation is interrupted by his discovery of a corpse while hiking. At home, his wife, Officer Bernie Manuelito, witnesses a hit-and-run. As two investigations ensue, narrator DeLanna Studi's distinct characterizations keep the storylines clearly differentiated, allowing listeners to also absorb the depictions of the story's physical setting and culture. A glossary of Navajo words narrated by WWII code talker Peter MacDonald provides an excellent reference. E.J.F. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2022]
