Amazon Best Mystery of 2015 Navajo Tribal cops Jim Chee and Bernadette Manuelito, and their mentor, the legendary Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn, investigate two perplexing cases in this exciting Southwestern mystery from the New York Times bestselling author of Spider Woman's Daughter. Doing a good deed for a relative offers the perfect opportunity for Sergeant Jim Chee and his wife, Officer Bernie Manuelito, to get away from the daily grind of police work. But two cases will call them back from their short vacation and separate them--one near Shiprock, and the other at iconic Monument Valley. Chee follows a series of seemingly random and cryptic clues that lead to a missing woman, a coldblooded thug, and a mysterious mound of dirt and rocks that could be a gravesite. Bernie has her hands full managing the fallout from a drug bust gone wrong, uncovering the origins of a fire in the middle of nowhere, and looking into an ambitious solar energy development with long-ranging consequences for Navajo land. Under the guidance of their mentor, retired Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn, Bernie and Chee will navigate unexpected obstacles and confront the greatest challenge yet to their skills, commitment, and courage.… (més)

It’s still no Tony Hillerman. This was told from the POV of both Chee and Bernie Manuelito, and it seemed rather scattered as a result. The way the various plot threads came together and were resolved felt almost like an afterthought. Bernie’s character is being fleshed out more, but she’s still not as interesting a character as Chee and Leaphorn were in Tony Hillerman’s hands. ( )

Rock with Wings is a good suspenseful novel. It takes place in today's time on the Navajo reservation and on the Navajo reservation. Even though the Navajo police officers each has a very large territory that he or she is responsible, with little resources, they are still able to solve difficult cases. From the first page through the last, the reader is kept enthralled in the solving of the cases. This is a good story, highly recommended and more than deserving of its four stars. ( )

Bernie and Chee are apart for most of this book, each with their own mysteries to solve. I found the story a good distraction and enjoyable read. It is always pleasant to visit the southwest with the Hillermans, Tony or Anne. ( )

story took too long to develop and was repetitive, boring ( )

I’m a sucker for stories about the Southwest, and this is a good enough read. It is pretty light. It is written very much like a J.A. Jance Joanna Brady novel; nothing earth shattering, but enjoyable characters and an interesting story. It’s nice to spend a few hours reading about Navajo life, culture and mythologies as well as Navajoland.

I apparently didn’t remember that the Lieutenant had been shot in the head, or I haven’t read that book yet, but I like how his character was worked into Rock With Wings. ( )

In memory of my mother, Marie. She gave me the title for this book...

Officer Bernadette Manuelito had been sitting in her unit by the side of the road for an hour, watching the last of the twilight fade and the pinpoints of stars appear in the blue-gray sky.
