I have a hard time giving a mystery a '5'. I haven't given any of Hillerman's other mysteries a '5' (and I like Hillerman a lot). This one deserves a '5'.

Written in 1984, this is book 6 of the 18 Leaphorn / Chee novels. In it, Hillerman fleshes out the character and temperament of Jim Chee.

Because Officer Jim Chee of the Navajo Police listens to everything witnesses have to say (in contrast to his belagana counterparts who are too impatient) he is able to piece together information that leads him to missing persons, hit men, and an international car-theft ring.
