ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Anne Hillerman has rolled out the anticipated third book in her popular Leaphorn-Chee-Manuelito mystery series.
The new release, “Cave of Bones,” spotlights Bernadette Manuelito, a Navajo Tribal police officer. The novel’s main thread is set on and near the Malpais, the lava wilderness just south of Grants. The Malpais isn’t reservation land, though it’s not far from the Navajo Ramah chapter.
Manuelito accepts an invitation to give a talk to teenage girls – some at-risk, some in need of a confidence boost – with a privately-run outdoor program camping in the Malpais.
Manuelito’s planned talk is derailed by the delayed return from an overnight solo camp-out of Annie Rainsong, a troubled, though tough Navajo teen, and a police search for the disappeared Domingo Cruz, a Navajo who’s an official of the Wings and Roots outdoor program.
