A pre-dawn raid on the Ute tribe's gambling casino leaves one policeman dead, a deputy sheriff wounded and the criminals vanished into the maze of canyons on the Arizona border. The FBI take over the manhunt, but the high-tech investigation grinds to a halt in this unusual territory. It is not until Chee and Leaphorn arrive on the scene that the connection to a famous Ute legend enables the solution to the case. Tony Hillerman, winner of the Edgar and the Grandmaster Awards from the Mystery Writers of America, has written many novels. The First Eagle (also featuring Leaphorn and Chee) was published by HarperCollins in 1999.Read Less

Tony Hillerman portrays the Navajo in a realistic, truthful way that shows how all people are more alike than different. The romantic views from Hollywood and other writers are not present here. The mystery is just an added bonus.

Same Old Scenery, Not All Bad
Once you've read one Tony Hillerman, you've pretty much read them all.
There's more than a grain of truth to that statement and there is little in Hunting Badger that breaks new ground. Chee and Leaphorn trades notes across the Navajo rez and catch a bad guy together. Mr. Hillerman, though, is like a favorite uncle who lives in the middle of nowhere. Yes, he tells the same old stories, but it's always a pleasure to sit on his porch and take in the scenery.
