"Bureau of Indian Affairs Special Agent Joe Evers still mourns the death of his wife and, after bungling an investigation, faces a forced early retirement. What he needs is a new career, not another case. But when the bullet-riddled Lincoln of Congressman Arlen Edgerton turns up on the Navajo Reservation--twenty years after he disappeared during a corruption probe--Joe must overcome his emotional demons and resurrect a failing career to solve the mysterious cold case. When Joe meets Sierra Hannaway, the sister of the congressional aide who had also gone missing with Edgerton and was painted as his mistress by the media, she accuses him of being a do-nothing investigator. Her passion triggers something within Joe, and he promises to find the truth. Partnering with Navajo Tribal Officer Randall Bluehorse, his investigation antagonizes potential suspects and Edgerton's widow, who happens to be the leading gubernatorial candidate and is eager to put her husband's tarnished story behind her. Joe uncovers a murderous conspiracy that leads him from the Navajo Nation to Washington D.C. Can he unravel the mystery and bring the true criminal to justice, or will he become another silenced victim?"--

This storyline sounds like a copy-cat type, taken from the Sheriff Longmire television series. It was excellent and very exciting. Not sure if I'd want to read basically the same kind of material a second time...but what the heck...I might be tempted. :)

Despite rave reviews from the critics, I did not enjoy this book. It had too many unneeded characters and convoluted subplots. I did not find the main character interesting.
I only made it to page 55, then I grabbed a Tony Hillerman novel from my bookshelf. Ah, much better.
