Summary
Anne Hillerman skillfully continues the acclaimed mysteries featuring Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee. Spiderwoman's Daughter (the 19th novel featuring the Navajo cops) focuses on police officer Bernadette "Bernie" Manualito, who's married to Chee. When Leaphorn leaves a restaurant after a breakfast meeting, Bernie witnesses his shooting in the parking lot. Bernie's not on the case because she's an eyewitness, but keeps abreast of the investigation via her husband. While the FBI aids the tribal police, Bernie digs into Leaphorn's past to crack the case. - Description by Dawn Towery
