Overview

Against the sublime beauty of the American southwest, Tony Hillerman has created his unique landscape for murder and mystery. Like any great mystery writer, he is able to give us insights into the sensibilities of his characters, and Tony Hillerman has spent years getting to know the Navajo people. On this recording he reads two of his most poplar novels.

The characters of Officer Jim Chee and Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn are united for the first time in Skinwalkers. Here they attempt to solve three murders that occured hundreds of miles apart and encouter the magic of the Navajo witches, of "Skinwalkers."

In Talking God, Washington politics and protest lead Chee and Leaphorn to cases of grave robbing and to a body that was found stripped of all identification.

Navajo country—about which little is known and much is imagined—makes a wonderful location for mystery. And no one capture the flavor like Tony Hillerman.
