Summary
The victim, well dressed but stripped of identity, is found at the edge of a vast natural gas field, just inside the jurisdiction of the Navajo Tribal Police, facing Sergeant Jim Chee with a complex puzzle. Why did the Washington office of the FBI snatch custody of the case from its local agents, cover it with secrecy, and call it a hunting accident? What was the victim seeking among the pipelines of America's largest gas field? Was he investigating the embezzlement of billions of dollars of royaltys from the Indian Tribal trust? On a level nearer to Chee's heart, did the photographs Bernie Manuelito took on an exotic game ranch near the Mexican border reveal something connected with this crime? Did Bernie, once a member of Chee's squad but now a rookie Border Patrol Officer, put herself in terrible danger?
