Fossil harvesting, ancient lore, greed, rejected
love and murder combine in this gripping new installment of
New York Times bestselling author Anne Hillerman’s
Leaphorn, Chee & Manuelito series.
An unexpected death on a lonely road outside of
Utah’s Bears Ears National Monument raises questions
for Navajo Tribal Police officers Jim Chee and Bernadette
Manuelito. Why would a seasoned outdoorsman and well-known
paleontologist freeze to death within walking distance of
his car? A second death brings more turmoil. Who is the
unidentified man killed during a home invasion where nothing
seems to have been taken? Why was he murdered?
The Bears Ears area, at the edge of the Navajo Nation, is
celebrated for its abundance of early human habitation sites
and the discovery of unique fossils which revolutionized the
scientific view of how early animals dealt with their
changing world. For Chee and Bernie, the area glows with
geological interest and spiritual insight. But their visit
to this achingly beautiful place is disrupted by a current
of unprecedented violence that sweeps them both into danger.
An illicit business, a fossilized jaw bone, hints of
witchcraft, and a mysterious disappearance during a blizzard
and to the peril. It will take all of Manuelito’s and
Chee’s experience, skill, and intuition to navigate
the threats that arise beneath the twin buttes that give
Bears Ears its name and to see justice served.
