NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

“A fine legacy series . . .  in the spirit of her late father, Tony.”—Booklist 

An ancient mystery resurfaces with ramifications for the present day in this gripping chapter in the Leaphorn, Chee & Manuelito series from New York Times bestselling author Anne Hillerman.

Sergeant Jim Chee’s vacation to beautiful Antelope Canyon and Lake Powell has a deeper purpose. He’s on a quest to unravel a sacred mystery his mentor, the Legendary Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn, stumbled across decades earlier. 

Chee’s journey takes a deadly turn when, after a prayerful visit to the sacred Rainbow Bridge, he spots a body floating in the lake. The dead man, a Navajo with a passion for the canyon’s ancient rock art, lived a life filled with many secrets. Discovering why he died and who was responsible involves Chee in an investigation that puts his own life at risk. 

Back in Shiprock, Officer Bernadette Manuelito is driving home when she witnesses an expensive sedan purposely kill a hitchhiker. The search to find the killer leads her to uncover a dangerous chain of interconnected revelations involving a Navajo Nation cannabis enterprise. 

But the evil that is unleashed jeopardizes her mother and sister Darleen, and puts Bernie in the deadliest situation of her law enforcement career.

Another Hillerman gift

I first read one of Tony Hillerman’s books while traveling in the Florida Keys. I believe it was the blessing way. Since them I have read almost everything he has written and all of his daughters books that continue the series and I have enjoyed them all. The setting in Navajo country adds something for me as I got to travel in that area with my family many years ago when a teenager. The books are both good mysteries, exciting, and engage the reader into the culture of the Navajo and to a lesser degree the Hopi people. My fingers are crossed that the series will continue. This story takes place on and around lake Powell. I still remember the construction of the Glen Canyon dam and the efforts made to stop its construction. My father took the rest of the family on a boating trip through the lake as it was filling up and while many of the tributary canyons were just beginning to fill.The story involves tourist trips around the lake and the perspectives of an elderly archeologist who tried to document what was being covered as lake Powell filled. There is of course a murder. At the same time there is an investigation of a marijuana farm suspected of illegal activities.

The Sacred Bridge

It was good and likable as usual but annoying that it took Jim Chee so long to realize who the very obvious murderer was.
I do want to go to Utah now and see the sights around Lake Powell.
