To Officer Bernadette Manuelito, the man curled up on the truck seat was just another drunk, which got Bernie in trouble for mishandling a crime scene, which got Sergeant Jim Chee in trouble with the FBI, which drew Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn out of retirement and back into the old "Golden Calf mine" homicide, a case which he had hoped to forget.

Legends of the area's lost gold mines join the mountains and canyons of the Navajo Reservation as an important part of Hillerman's plot, but this tale turns on an obsessive love and the sound of a missing woman's voice in the wind wailing around the long-abandoned Wingate Ordnance Depot. This is an evocative novel by a master at the top of his form.
