Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Wes Studi and Adam Beach return as Navajo tribal policemen Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee in this third movie based on the Tony Hillerman bestsellers, produced by Robert Redford and aired as part of PBS's Mystery! In Thief of Time, Leaphorn and Chee find themselves on the trail of a killer who seems to have a thing for curiously decorated pottery -- antiquities that may offer clues to the fate of the mysteriously vanished Anasazi culture. Thief of Time also features Peter Fonda, Graham Greene, and Sheila Tousey.
