    A good read and a classic pairing

    I've recently begun working my way through Tony Hillerman's mysteries set in the Southwest. What I like best about them are the Navajo characters, Officer Jim Chee and Lt. Joe Leaphorn, drawn with real affection and insight. Most of the action takes place in their heads as they put together the pieces of various crime investigations, using their intimate knowledge of tribal life to illuminate clues that would go unnoticed by outsiders.

    If you've visited the areas of New Mexico and Arizona where the Navajo Reservation bumps up against white America, you'll enjoy being let in on that world in more detail. The bleakly beautiful landscapes as well as the way of life of Navajos and Hopis color these tales and make them unforgettable.

    Although Leaphorn and Chee were each the protagonists of earlier Hillerman books, "Skinwalkers" is the first that pairs them up, and they're a classic duo. Faced with solving three Reservation homicides, many miles apart, that at first appear unconnected but slowly begin to reveal aspects of witchcraft, the two lawmen learn to respect each other's process. As events accelerate and revelations come quickly upon one another, the nailbiter of a climax will keep you on pins and needles.
