The fallen man
Tony Hillerman
Adult Fiction HILLERM

Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

From Library Journal:

At the opening of this latest installment in Hillerman's fabled series featuring Navajo tribal police officers Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee (e.g., Sacred Clowns, Audio Reviews, LJ 11/15/93), we learn that Leaphorn has finally retired. Yet, like so many fictional series detectives, he is soon called out of retirement to lend his expertise in a complex case. In this instance, it's the discovery of a skeleton on a sacred Navajo mountain, which Leaphorn suspects are the remains of a ranching heir who disappeared 11 years earlier, only days after coming into possession of a huge trust fund. Soon, several murders convince our duo that an old case is very much alive. George Guidall, who reads other Hillerman mysteries for Recorded Books, seems to have found the perfect rhythm for expressing the author's wonderful prose. Recommended for all popular collections and wherever Hillerman has a following.‘Mark Annichiarico, "Library Journal" (c) Copyright 2010.
