fron new mexico to washington d.c.
This story is somewhat different than hillermans usual. Where most of his stories take place on one of several reservations, this book starts out on the reservation. but moves to the Sante Fe railroad, and then to Washington D.C. Sgt. Jim Chee is after a wantabe Navajo, by the name of Highhawk, for grave robbing. Lt Leaphorn is asked by his friend in the FBI to look as a corpse found by the side of the railroad tracks. The two cases are intertwined, and we find both Navajo policemen in Washington D.C. trying to find answers

Love the whole series of Hillerman books, so would read this as part of the Leaphorn/Chee saga.
