- KurzbeschreibungTo Officer Bernadette Manuelito the man curled on the truck seat was just another drunk - which got Bernie in trouble for mishandling a crime scene - which got Sgt. Jim Chee in trouble with the FBI - which drew Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn out of retirement and back into the old "Golden Calf" homicide which he had hoped to forget.
Nothing had seemed complicated about that earlier case. A con game had gone sour. A swindler had tried to sell wealthy old Wiley Denton the location of one of the West s multitude of legendary lost gold mines. Denton had shot the swindler, called the police, confessed the homicide, and done his short prison time. No mystery there.
Except, why did the rich man s bride vanish? The cynics said she was part of the swindle plot. She d fled when it failed. But, alas, old Joe Leaphorn was a romantic. He believed in love and thus the old Golden Calf case still troubled him. Now papers found in this new homicide case connect the victim to Denton, to the mythical Golden Calf, and to Fort Wingate. The first Golden Calf victim had been there just hours before Denton killed him. And while Denton was killing him, four children trespassing among the rows of empty bunkers in the long-abandoned Wingate Ordinance Depot called in an odd report to the police. They had heard, in the wind wailing around the old buildings, the sound of music and cries of a woman.
Bernie Manuelito uses her knowledge of Navajo country and tribal traditions and her friendship with a famous old medicine man to unravel the first know of this puzzle, with Jim Chee putting aside his distaste of the FBI to help her. But the questions raised by this second Golden Calf murder aren t answered until Leaphorn solves the puzzle left by the first one and discovers what the young trespassers heard in the wailing wind.
