The Death Sommelier
Frank Stephenson, author
Set on the Navajo Reservation in northeastern Arizona, a USGS geologist is sent to examine the deaths of several Navajo people because their demise was originally believed to be caused by contaminated groundwater, a subject which the geologist knows well, but suspects otherwise. His major distraction, however, is a former Navajo girlfriend who darts in and out of his life like smoke from an ancient fire. Can he find her again?
