Editorial Reviews

Review

A thrilling southwestern...set in the vivid landscapes of Navajo country...A must-read for anyone who loved the great Tony Hillerman novels.

-- "Douglas Preston, #1 New York Times bestselling author"

A worthy continuation of Tony Hillerman's Leaphorn and Chee series. Anne ably returns to Navajo Country in a colorful mystery that is both fascinating and vividly compelling.

-- "David Morrell, New York Times bestselling author"

Accessible and relaxingly paced...Readers who enjoy the work of Anne's father, Tony Hillerman, as well as mysteries by Nevada Barr, will welcome another outing with Leaphorn, Chee, and Manuelito.

-- "Booklist"

As Hillerman continues her father's legacy through his beloved characters, she's gradually and gratifyingly finding her own voice.

-- "Kirkus Reviews"

Hillerman's use of the harsh but beautiful landscape and details of Navajo life is as strong as ever.

-- "Publishers Weekly"

In the fourth series installment, the law enforcement talents of Hillerman's characters shine... Hillerman's vivid descriptions of Navajo culture and the desert landscape are top-notch; the story lines flow smoothly to a satisfying conclusion. Verdict: Fans of Hillerman's characters will relish this Southwestern mystery and cheer Bernie's growing confidence as a sleuth.

-- "Library Journal" --This text refers to the audioCD edition.

New York Times best selling author Anne Hillerman continues the mystery series her father Tony Hillerman created beginning in 1970. Anne's debut novel, "Spider Woman's Daughter," follows the further adventures of the characters Tony Hillerman made famous: Jim Chee and Joe Leaphorn and adds Bernadette Manuelito as a major player. The book received the Spur Award from Western Writers of America for Best First Novel.

Her second, "Rock with Wings," received the New Mexico Book Awards’ Founders’ Award. The third novel in the reinvigorated series, "Song of the Lion," was a finalist for New Mexico's Zia Award. In that story, Bernie and Chee go the Grand Canyon and Tuba City, Arizona to solve a crime that begins with a deadly explosion. Next came "Cave of Bones" which took the reader to the mysterious and majestic lava landscape of El Malpais for a story that concerns a missing person, possible misuse of tribal funds, and combative mothers-in-law.

The fifth novel in the series "The Tale Teller," released in April, 2019, brings legendary Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn back as a full-fledged crime solver.

Anne also is the author of "Tony Hillerman's Landscape: On the Road with Chee and Leaphorn" with husband/photographer Don Strel. In collaboration with St. Martin’s Press she established The Tony Hillerman Prize for best first mystery novel set in the Southwest.

Anne belongs to many writers’ organizations and served on the board of Western Writers of America. In 2019, she was deeply honored to receive the Frank Waters Award for literary excellence. She gave the annual Rudolfo and Patricia Anaya Lecture on the Literature of the Southwest at the University of New Mexico. She is a frequent presenter at the Tucson Festival of the Book, Malice Domestic and Bouchercon and has represented New Mexico at the National Book Festival hosted by the Library of Congress.

She lives and works in Santa Fe with trips to the Navajo Nation.
