Lieutenant Leaphorn is re-examining a murder scene with Officer Gorman, who is not the most observant of investigators. By studying signs indicating the entry and exit paths taken by the killer, Leaphorn discovers that the murderer did not use the shortest and easiest routes, and concludes that he was probably not familiar with the landscape. The victim, then, was most likely killed by a stranger to the area.

During his investigation, Leaphorn's thoughts wander to his wife Emma, who is exhibiting the early symptoms of Alzheimer's Disease.
