THE SINISTER PIG by Tony Hillerman combines all of that you have come to expect from a classic Hillerman mystery. It has it all: murder, intrigue, ominous messages from "The Man," political maneuvering and corruption. And, as usual, it's all set against the sweeping panoramas of the American Southwest.

Chee and Leaphorn are at their very best when a body turns up in their jurisdiction. The pair untangle the deftly woven webs of deceit placed carefully to ensnare the curious while covering up one of the slickest crimes the two have ever encountered. A slick read!
