The mysterious disappearance of a Pueblo student and the seemingly motiveless murder of a middle-aged man are two cases that refuse to be solved. Tribal symbols and those who would kill to sell them to the highest bidder may hold the key.

The service was excellent, and, of course, I love the book. I knew I would already because I have yet to read a book by Tony Hillerman that I don't love.

Another great story
In this book Lt. Joe Leaphorn has not yet retired from the Navajo tribal police, and officer Jim Chee has been working for the lieutenant for only one week. Hillerman weaves a story of a hit-and-run of a pedestrian (who dies) and two other murders that happen within a day of one another, although over twenty miles apart, with a tribal ceremony, a mission school, a group wanting to use an old abandoned mine on the Navajo reservation for a toxic dump site, a love story between Chee and a Navajo public defender by the name of Janet Pete , another love story between Leaphorn and professor Louisa Bourebonette, and Chee learning how to work with Leaphorn. The story doesn't start to unravel till almost the last chapter, and you are kept on the edge of your chair till the last three pages as to "who done it". A well written, believable story.
