Summary
It happened in an instant: After a breakfast with colleagues, Navajo Nation Police Officer Bernadette Manuelito sees a truck squeal into the parking lot and hears a crack of gunfire. When the dust clears, someone very close to her is lying on the asphalt in a pool of blood. With the victim in the hospital fighting for his life, every person in the squad and the local FBI office is hell-bent on catching the gunman. Pooling their skills, Bernie and her husband, Sergeant Jim Chee, discover that a cold case involving Chee's former boss and partner, retired lieutenant Joe Leaphorn, may hold the key to the shooting. Digging into the old investigation, they find themselves inching closer to the truth . . . and closer to a killer who will do anything to prevent justice from taking its course

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
