Book Review of Talking God (Joe Leaphorn/Jim Chee, Bk 9)

Talking God (Joe Leaphorn/Jim Chee, Bk 9)
reviewed The only Hillerman I've read on + 32 more book reviews

Read 8/15/98 I guess this is the quintessential summer book. I read it on a five-hour flight to LA, plus three-hour wait for takeoff. It was diverting. On page 329 character Jim Chee is reading Michael Dorris Yellow Raft on Blue Water. Id rather have been reading that, too. Jim Chee is a Navajo Tribal Policeman. So is Joe Leaphorn, they come at a murder investigation, conspiracy, and faked aboriginal art from different angles, but wind up with the same suspects. In future, Ill stick with Dorris and Erdrich and leave Hillerman to the bestseller lists.
