Sandoval: Listening Woman

After four years in the Navy and service in Iraq tracking down bombers and IEDs, and fresh from the Navajo police academy, 26-year-old Navajo Nation Police Officer Irene Sandoval reports for duty and is assigned four bottom-of-the-barrel assignments nobody else wants, including two major cold-case follow-ups, babysitting a rich, white, politically connected daughter of a Washington bigshot -- and arresting an old flame from 10th grade who stole a sheep. Enter a dead frog, a legendary Navajo shaman pursued by Kit Carson, kidnapped Boy Scouts, a ransom demand, and a radical Native American cell ... and Sandoval finds herself neck-deep in entangled cases and cold-blooded killers.
