The Ghostway (Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee Series #6) by Tony Hillerman, George Guidall

Old Joseph Joe sees it all, Two strangers spill blood at the Shiprock Wash-O-Mat. One dies. The other drives off into the dry lands of the Big Reservation, but not before he shows the old Navajo a photo of the man he seeks. This is enough to send Tribal Policeman Jim Chee after a killer . . . and on an odyssey of murder and revenge that moves from an Indian hogan and its trapped ghost, to the dark underbelly of L.A., to a healing ceremony whose cure could be death.

Good Mystery with some Navajo culture.

Chee is a likable character, and I liked getting into his thoughts as he's solving the mystery. Native American life and lore adds an interesting and different element.

I'm a huge fan of Tony Hillerman. This is my second time around reading his Leaphorn/Chee novels. Even though they are set in the 1970's they are relevant and fun reads.

This has some of the Indian lore that keeps Hillerman fans coming back, but not enough. The investigation involves too much non-reservation settings, which does not seem consistent with Jim Chee's style.

The Ghostway By:Tony HIllerman

Main character: The main character in this story is named Joseph Joe. He is old, mid ranged smart, is kind and wants to help, and he is of good help in this story.Joseph is the only one who saw the murder.

Plot:The problem in my story is about a murder. In this murder a guy named Joseph Joe has to help the police. He has to find the guy that murded his neighbor that he didn't even know about. The killer in this book basically picked up the nieghbor in his truck, shot him, and then drove off. This is the main problem in my story.

Setting: There is no setting described except when he is chasing the killer in the mountains and in L.A.

Theme: This story's point is suspense and to teach children to not commit murder because you will be caught.

Connection: I can connect to this story because i ahve chased someone into the mountains and he somehow got away. Also i can connect this story to another story called Brian's Winter because Brian is lost and the driver of the airplane is dead.

Names of related books: Brian's winter

The Ghostway by Tony Hillerman was an interesting mystery about a murder in a small town. The reason I started to read this book is because I like things that have information about Indians. Some of the main characters in the story are Chee, Margaret Billy Sosi, and Vaggan. This story is about a murder which Chee is trying to solve. He goes to L.A. to try to find Margaret Billy Sosi because she is the key to solving the case. Vaggan is a hired hitman who is also looking for Margaret Billy Sosi, but he wants to kill her. This story is good because it has a lot of suspense and mystery. I give this book a five star rating. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes books filled with suspense and mystery.

The Ghostway is one of the best Hillerman mysteries, and I've enjoyed every one of them! Chee has too many things on his plate in this one - a woman who wants him become more like white society, a boss who wants to keep him out of political trouble with the Feds, and a murder that invokes his sense of responsibility as a hataalii - a medicine man. READ THIS ONE! Then find all of Hillerman's work! Worth every minute!
