Rereading Joy

by anluwa on Apr 3, 2014

I bought this book for a friend. She had borrowed and read it from the library. She HAD to have it for her own library and is enthusiastically rereading it.


children are killed in this mystery

Dance hall of the dead is the name of a sacred lake in Zuni religion, and this book is steeped in Zuni mythology. A killer, wearing a Kachina mask, hippies living in a deserted Navajo hogan, an anthropologist trying to prove a new theory about a people that disappeared thousands of years ago, the FBI looking for a narcotic drop, and Lt Leaphorn, who turns out to be an excellent tracker are all part of this entangled web that Hillerman has woven. It will keep your interest, I promise. There was too much smoke for me to figure it out.

Tony paints the picture of NM and AZ and leads the reader on an adventure. "The Dance Hall Of The Dead" is another in the series that is suspenseful and keeps the reader's interest up to the last page.
