Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn is back in another mystery from
Since his retirement from the Navajo Tribal Police, Joe Leaphorn has occasionally been enticed to return to work by his former colleagues, who seek his help in solving a particularly puzzling crime. They ask because Leaphorn, aided by Jim Chee and Bernie Manuelito, always delivers.
But this time the problem is with an old case of Joe's - his 'last case', unsolved, and one that continues to haunt him. And with Chee and Bernie just back from their honeymoon, Leaphorn is pretty much on his own. The original case involved a priceless Navajo rug that went missing. Now, years later, Leaphorn is picking up the threads of a crime he'd thought impossible to solve.
