Chee and Manuelito take on monsters legendary and real
At an outdoor program for at-risk teens, a girl returns, hours late, after stumbling upon a human skeleton. Tribal Police Officer Bernadette Manuelito is concerned about an instructor who disappeared in the lava wilderness while searching for the girl. In Navajo lore, the lava caves and tubes are the solidified blood of a monster killed by twin warriors.
The disappearance may be connected to a case that involved Joe Leaphorn. But a blizzard, a suspicious drowning, and the arrival of a new FBI agent complicate the investigation.
Meanwhile, a man sent to prison by Bernie’s husband, Sgt. Jim Chee, for domestic violence is involved with Bernie’s sister—challenging Chee as a family man, a police officer, and as a medicine man in training.
