    Tony Hillerman triumphs again!

    The murder of a local Navajo school teacher and an official at the Tano Indian pueblo seem unrelated to Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee of the Navajo Tribal Police in Tony Hillerman¿s ¿Sacred Clowns.¿ But a runaway schoolboy provides the necessary connection and Leaphorn and Chee are off on one of their best investigations. Hillerman chooses the pueblo scene well. The kachinas (sacred clowns) dance their way into the heart of the book, with description that is compelling, even mesmerizing. It takes the patient, by-the-books efforts of Leaphorn and the sometimes unorthodox (even naive) methods of Chee (a great combination) to bring this case to a close. Of all the Hillerman books, this one certainly ranks among his very best. He seems to have taken his time, even relished in the deliberate pacing of the novel, much to the discernable reader¿s delight!

    One of Hillerman's best.

    Intriguing story laced with culture of Navajo, Hopi and Pueblo peoples. If you are interested in the Southwestern tribes, this series is for you. Best read in order as story sometimes builds on earlier books. Wonderful descriptions of scenery, flora and fauna.

    To Die of Laughter

    The Tano Pueblo is having a Koshare ceremony. The Koshares, known as the Sacred Clowns, are doing their dance of laughter and protest to the greedy. But it's no laughing matter when one of the Koshares is murdered at the ceremony. And a teacher is murdered about 200 miles away in Throeau N.M. Lt. Leaphorn, and Officer Chee are looking to find the murderer of the teacher. While wondering who murdered the Koshare, which was a homicide commited out of their jurisdiction. This book was not just another mystery book to me, i considered this book one of the best mysterys ever written in history. You must read this book, you will enjoy it i promise you.
