Millions of dollors worth of diamonds

by readersreader on Apr 28, 2008

This tale centers around the Grand Canyon where 50 years ago two airlplanes collided in midair, killimg all 172 passengers aboard both airplanes. One man on board has in his possession, handcuffed to his wrist, a briefcase full of large, special cut diamonds he was bringing to his fathers company, worth millions. He is also on his way home to marry his pregnant fiancee. A large special cut diamond shows up in the hands of Cowboy Dashee's cousin, who tries to pawn it for $20.00. The plot evolves around trying to prove the innocence of the cousin, who is suspected of stealing the diamon from a local shop that was robbed, and the finding of proof that will prove the identity of the daughter that was born to the dead passenger. There is a rumor that a briefcase, attached to a hand and arm were seen floating in the Colorado river shortly after the planes collided. DNA of those bones could prove the daughters identity, one way or another. Good fiction.

Beach Read Hillerman

by dfn8tly on Aug 9, 2007

In many respects "Skeleton Man" proved to be typical Hillerman. If you are a fan of this prolific writer this can be both good and bad. One of the reasons I enjoy Mr. Hillerman's work is the opportunity to learn more about the Navajo and Hopi cultures and traditions. In that respect this novel does not disappoint. However, the story just seems too light and predictable. If you're looking for a quick, non-intellectual read, you'll like "Skeleton Man".
