Booklist Review

Santa Fe, New Mexico, private eye Joshua Croft, fresh from Wall of Glass (St. Martin's, 1988), returns in this page-turner about the Navahos and a 60-year-old unsolved murder. Dignified and enigmatic Navaho Daniel Begay asks Joshua to find the remains of a fellow tribesman, removed from the Indian reservation in 1925 by an archaeological team and missing since the team leader was murdered shortly after returning to his home in El Paso. Joshua soon learns that looking into old crimes sometimes stirs up very bad trouble, as he and Daniel must race to a remote corner of a Navaho reservation in order to stop another murder. Using the potentially hackneyed plot device of an old, unsolved murder to excellent effect, the author produces a riveting, highly readable mystery. The vivid characters and evocative use of the Navaho setting are reminiscent of Tony Hillerman. Hope for further installments in this series; Satterthwait is an author to watch. --Stuart Miller
