Hillerman always has a surprise, a twist in the story that keeps you in suspense. I like the history, issues, customs of the Native Americans that weave in and out of the story and which makes each book so atypical of "regular" mysteries.
Another great story told by Tony Hillerman about Jim Chee and the Navajo Tribal Police. I love this series and learn something every time I read on of them.
A very good plot and has a lot of mysterious happenings. If you like Hillerman's books, this is a must because it's one of the best my husband and I have read so far.
Crime thriller that was an ok read. It is entertaining but not that great.
A mystery with a Native American twist. This is one of a series by the same author.
Chee is back with Lephorn and mystery's to solve.
Interesting tale about drug runners on the Hopi-Navajo reservation. Tony Hillerman makes mention that Hopi theology as represented in this novel may not be perfectly accurate.
awesome..Loved it will be reading more.
Its a good story I always enjoy Tony Hillerman's stories and look forward to the next one.
Jim Chee is one of the great American literary characters ever created. The story was taut, suspensful and satisfying to the end.
My husbands favorite series.
Lt. Joe Leaphorn is drawn into a plot of Navajo sorcery and white man's greed.
A corpse whose plams and soles have been "scalped" is only the first in a series of disturbing clues: an airplane's mysterious crash in the nightime desert, a bizarre attack on a windmill, avanishing shipment of cocaine. sgt. Jiom Chee of the Navajo Tribal Police is trapped in the deadly web of a cunningly spun plot driven by Navajo sorcery and white man;s greed.
VERY INTRIGUING JIM CHEE STORY, SEEMS TO BE TUNNELED TOWARD A COUPLE OF MURDERS, A BURGLARY OF A TRADING POST AND A AIRPLANE DRUG DROP THET WINDS UP WITH THREE MEN DEAD AT THE SCENE. HOW ARE THEY ALL CONNECTED? I ENJOYED IT VERY MUCH.
