Joe Leaphorn is not too happy. Louisa nagged him into seeing her friend, Daisy Pinto. Daisy has something she wants investigated. So here he is at the museum waiting to see her. And waiting and waiting. As it turns out, this is actually something that interests him. An historic traditional dress, recently donated to the museum, has disappeared and Mrs. Pinto wants him to find it. And she wants him to find it quickly. It’s great to have retired Navajo police lieutenant Joe Leaphorn back actively involved in a case. And while he’s busy, Jim Chee is working on some burglaries in Chinle and Bernie Manuelito has found a dead body. So we have three story lines for the price of one. Anne Hillerman has become a very good writer. Her descriptions of the beautiful scenery surround the story. When she talks about food, you can almost taste it. And trying to keep up with the twists of three plots kept me turning pages. I enjoyed this book very much and am looking forward to the next one.
