Who would murder a dying man? Why would someone steal a box of rocks? And why would a rich man's wife pay $3,000 to get them back? These questions haunt Sgt. Jim Chee of the Navajo Tribal Police as he journeys into the scorching Southwest. But there, out in the Bad Country, a lone assassin waits for Chee to come seeking answers, waits ready and willing to protect a vision of death that for thirty years has been fed by greed and washed in blood.

The tombstone reads "Here lies a good Indian". Officer Jim Chee of the Navajo Tribal Police is not particularly amused, especially since this tombstone marks a grave on private property. Traditionally, Navajos are not buried -- and certainly not in a white man's yard. But that's not what Chee is here to investigate. He's responding to a report of burglary. While the woman of the house can tell Chee that their safe was broken into, she has no idea what was stolen. Finding the burglar just in time to see him shot, brings up a more questions about the safe's missing contents, and their history.

Truly enjoyed the book. Will read all of the Jim Chee/Joe Leaphorn mysteries by Tony Hillerman.
