    This first book in the Joe Leaphorn series features an exciting conclusion, but it also features two heroes instead of one Ethnologist Bergen McKee getspages than Leaphorn , and I don t think it is always clear where the focus of the novel is supposed to be The ethnic information about witchcraft beliefs among the Navaho is interesting, but not always properly integrated into the narrati

    I actually read this quite a long time ago and I don t remember the details, but I ve never read a Tony Hillerman I didn t like.This is the first of Hillerman s Joe Leaphorn Jim Chee Navajo Reservation mysteries, and I read in an interview that it has so many inaccuracies about Navajo culture that it now makes him cringe Apparently, though, the Navajo people were quite pleased with his respectfu

    Many years ago I read several of Tony Hillerman s Leaphorn Chee books Around eight books in the series I believe When I saw the Kindle version on sale ata while back I decided to buy it and check it out again Although the title indicates Leaphorn Chee there is no Jim Chee and Joe Leaphorn often takes a backseat In fact the main protagonist appears to be Bergen McKee, a college professor who return

    Picked this up because I was looking for something different from the murder in a small English town thing Though it took a while to really get going, I found the people and setting interesting, and liked Joe Leaphorn.

    This first book in the Leaphorn series, really isn t that great.There s a corpse with sand in his mouth, and a hunt for a missile.The story is pretty simple, really only enough here for a novella, and it drags along Leaphorn really isn t in it very much, either Sort of hard to believe it heralded a series that would last over 40 years.
