Navajo tribal cops Jim Chee and Bernadette Manuelito and their mentor, the legendary lieutenant Joe Leaphorn, investigate two perplexing cases in this exciting Southwestern mystery. Doing a good deed for a relative offers the perfect opportunity for Sergeant Jim Chee and his wife, Officer Bernie Manuelito, to get away from the daily grind of police work. But two cases will call them back from their short vacation and separate them; one near Shiprock and the other at iconic Monument Valley.
