In the parking lot of the Cancer Research and Treatment Center at the University of New Mexico, a decrepit green pickup truck is rigged with a bomb and blown to smithereens. A murder attempt on a man who had just checked himself into the center... a man who was dying anyway. It is a baffling crime for which the Albuquerque police can find no explanation.

From official release/information:

Product Description: Who would murder a dying man? Why would someone steal a box of rocks? And why would a rich man's wife pay $3,000 to get them back? These questions haunt Sgt. Jim Chee of the Navajo Tribal Police as he journeys into the scorching Southwest. But there, out in the Bad Country, a lone assassin waits for Chee to come seeking answers, waits ready and willing to protect a vision of death that for thirty years has been fed by greed and washed in blood.
