The pig is not a pig pig

This story takes place in the San Juan Basin, in New Mexico, close to where the Jicarilla Apache reservation meets the Navajo Nation, in the very center of America's version of the Persan Gulf. A murder is committed on the Navajo Reservation, which means it's the jurisdiction of the FBI, who will be taking over the investigation from the Navajo Tribal Police in the Shiprock office. But for the moment, it is Sergeant Jim Chee's job. He is assisted by his buddy Cowboy Dashee who, when on the job, is an officer of the Federal Bureau of Land Management. The corpse is a white male with no identification on him, but his clothes say he isn't from around here. It turns out the story is not about oil monies stole from the natives. If you like Hillerman's stories like I do, you will love this one.
