Dance Hall of the Dead

Tony Hillerman

Two young boys suddenly disappear. One of them, a Zuni, leaves a pool of blood behind. Lt. Joe Leaphorn of the Navajo Tribal Police tracks the brutal killer. Three things complicate the search: an archeological dig, a steel hypodermic needle, and the strange laws of the Zuni.

Compelling, terrifying, and highly suspenseful, Dance Hall of the Dead never relents from first page til last.
