Rabbit Moon by Jan D. Payne
Everyone says you can’t go back home, but Dinetah, the Navajo Nation, is a place Marin Sinclair feels she has no right to claim as home. There are dark memories for her there, most of them wrapped up in the struggle to reconcile an Anglo worldview with that of the Navajo culture. She doesn’t expect that responding to a plea from a long ago Dineh friend will put her life in jeopardy, but Navajoland was ever a place to hold mysteries. The mystery now is what about her life then would make someone want to kill her?
Sgt. Justin Blue Eyes of the Navajo Nation Police shares a connection with Marin from the past, and he has the same question plus a few, including why the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission would send a top government agent to investigate the abandoned uranium mines on Navajo tribal lands—mines that in the past exposed hundreds of Native American miners to cancer-causing radiation. But first he needs to find Marin, and it looks like she has gone off the grid—on her own in the Lukachukai mountains with a killer close behind.
