Listening Woman (Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee Series #3) by Tony Hillerman

The state police and FBI are baffled when an old man and a teenage girl are brutally murdered. The blind Navajo Listening Woman speaks of ghosts and of witches. But Lieutenant Leaphorn of the Navajo Tribal Police knows his people as well as he knows cold-blooded killers. His incredible investigation carries him from a dead man's secret to a kidnap scheme, to a conspiracy that stretches back more than one hundred years. Leaphorn arrives at the threshold of a solution - and is greeted with the most violent confrontation of his career.

I have read almost all of the books in the Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee series and this one was great. This is the 3rd book in the series and only features Joe Leaphorn. I think the plot and the twists thrown in along the way to Joe Leaphorn solving the mystery is the best of the first three books. If you read the books in the sequence they were written, you can see Tony Hillerman's development of the characters, plots, and his use of the Navajo Country setting. One of the things that make this series great for me is that three of the books were made into movies. Everytime I read one of these, I picture Wes Studi and Adam Beach as the characters. If you enjoy these mysteries, then you should definately see the movies (Coyote Waits, Skinwalkers, and Thief of Time).

This is a plot that keeps you on the edge of your seat. Joe Leaphorn struggles through caves and caverns and risks death trying to solve the mystery. As always, the characters are well defined and the plot reveals the Native American culture in which is takes place. And as always, it comes to an exciting and surprising conclusion.

I have enjoyed Hillerman's books so much that I have ordered them for my son to read. I love the Four Corners area and these books are based on the Indian Reservation located there. Joe Leaphorn is like a Navajo Sherlock Holmes. I highly recommend all the books in this series.

Good read, always interesting plot twists. Ventured away from the reservation a bit, which was different. Overall, good summer reading.
