Overview

The Wailing Wind (Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee Series #15) by Tony Hillerman, George Guidall

To Officer Bernie Manuelito, the man curled on the truck seat was just another drunk—which got Bernie in trouble for mishandling a murder scene—which got Sgt. Jim Chee in trouble with the FBI—which drew ex-Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn out of retirement into an old crime he longed to forget. Legends of the area's lost gold mines join the mountains and canyons of the Navajo Reservation as an important part of Hillerman's plot, but his tale turns on an obsessive love and memories of a missing woman's voice wailing in the darkness. An evocative novel by a master at the top of his form.

it was underwhelming for me. Just kind of boring.

I listened to this audiotape as I drove to and from work. I enjoyed the story very much and listened everyday without fail as it continually kept my interest. The narrator was perfect. I am now "Hooked on Hillerman" and will read or listen to another shortly. I am buying a Hillerman gift for a friend.

Hillerman¿s latest story has Jim Chee going to his friend and mentor Joe Leaphorn and asking his help on a murder that seems somehow connected to one Leaphorn worked on before his retirement from the Navajo Tribal Police force. I like Hillerman. He is respectful of his characters and trusts his reader to have some intelligence. He weaves a good yarn spiked with lots of interesting insights into American Indians, their religious faith and their culture. This was a book on tape read by veteran narrator George Guidall who does an outstanding job with Hillerman¿s words. Indeed, I have listened to so many Hillerman books narrated by Guidall that I believe he really is Jim Chee and just uses Guidall as a pseudonym.
