People of Darkness (Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee Series #4) by Tony Hillerman

A dying man is murdered. A rich man's wife agrees to pay three thousand dollars for the return of a stolen box of rocks. A series of odd, inexplicable events is haunting Sergeant Jim Chee of the Navajo Tribal Police and drawing him alone into the Bad Country of the merciless Southwest, where nothing good can survive . . . including Chee. Because an assassin waits for him there, protecting a thirty-year-old vision that greed has sired and blood has nourished. And only one man will walk away.

This book is in the traditional style. Lots of plots at the beginning. He moves plots together as the book progresses. And just at the last momemt, the climax. I really didn't know the outcome until the last two or three pages. A must read.

What's in that box? Not Jack, but a Thrilling Mystery. Officer Chee is after the Box, but so is an Assasin. Will Officer Chee find the box before anyone else? Will he also be able to outrun the Assasin? And will he be able to find out why somebody would kill a dying Man and Steal his dead body from a morgue? This book influnced me to take up reading as a Hobby.
