Excellent Experience

by Rosanne C on Jun 3, 2011

The service was excellent, and, of course, I love the book. I knew I would already because I have yet to read a book by Tony Hillerman that I don't love.


Another great story

by readersreader on Apr 19, 2008

In this book Lt. Joe Leaphorn has not yet retired from the Navajo tribal police, and officer Jim Chee has been working for the lieutenant for only one week. Hillerman weaves a story of a hit-and-run of a pedestrian (who dies) and two other murders that happen within a day of one another, although over twenty miles apart, with a tribal ceremony, a mission school, a group wanting to use an old abandoned mine on the Navajo reservation for a toxic dump site, a love story between Chee and a Navajo public defender by the name of Janet Pete , another love story between Leaphorn and professor Louisa Bourebonette, and Chee learning how to work with Leaphorn. The story doesn't start to unravel till almost the last chapter, and you are kept on the edge of your chair till the last three pages as to "who done it". A well written, believable story.
