    The Sinister Pig is one of the funniest book titles I have ever heard As it s my custom to carry my current novel everywhere with me, I got some strange looks.This is a very frustrating entry for two reasons 1 The mystery, involving an oil pipeline is very boring and spurs the characters on to long, jargon filled paragraphs of explanation.Although I did like side characters such as Cabeza de Baca and Chrissy And the bad guy was appropriately evil.2 Jim Chee and Bernie Manuelito love each The Sinister Pig is one of the funniest book titles I have ever heard As it s my custom to carry my current novel everywhere with me, I got some strange looks.This is a ver...

    This book was aptly titled as the bad guys in this story were really sinister pigs Of course the title means something completely different, but crooked politicians, big businesses and drug dealers all fall into that pig category as far as I m concerned.The story was pretty good, even though it took place quite a ways away from the usual Chee and Leaphorn stomping grounds Still, the author gave a wonderful sense of place Some of the characters were neither good or bad but fell into that gra This book was aptly titled as the bad guys in this story were really sinister pigs Of course the title means something completely different, but crooked politicians...

    Ah, hard to believe that we will get noof Tony Hillerman s wonderful books I thought this was one of his best full of double meanings, teaching my about oil pipelines and the uses to which they could be put I used to love to listen to Hillerman s books when traveling through New Mexico because he brought that country and the native american people who live there to life so beautifully, while weaving in a mystery that caught you up in the story Easy reading, butcomplex than they a Ah, hard to believe that we will get noof Tony Hillerman s wonderful books I thought this was one of his best full of double meanings, t...

    Overly complex Felt like an attempt to update the series and infusing with Mexican border issues, Senate committees and drugs Not nearly enough landscape An attempt at multiple perspectives again, which was used to create tension and move the p...

    I enjoy Hillerman s books for the feeling of the reservation He really has an ear for the speech, an eye for the land and an understanding of how people live and how time moves I ve read most of Hillerman s books now, and this has the least reservation feel of the ones I ve read, and the least to recommend ...

    This novel starts off with Navajo Tribal Police sergeant Jim Chee finding a corpse in tribal lands near a natural gas field The FBI is trying to take over the case, saying that it was a hunting accident Joining Chee on the case is the familiar characters of Joe Leaphorn and Bernadette Manuelito Conspiracies abound, and not surprisingly, the US government aren t necessarily the good guys This is a solid novel, perhaps a little better than some other Hillerman n...

    Excellent story, as one expects from a master like Hillerman The environment was much less a factor in this story than others in the series, but the plot is artful, characters interesting and the action non stop Chee is out of his depth and knows it, pursuing answers even though the feds have taken over and are now claiming there is no case He is also lovelorn with few prospects of resolving that situation either He calls for help from a number of sources in his search for information, and w Excellent story, as one expects from a master like Hillerman The environment was much less a factor in this story than others in the series, but the plot is artful, characters interesting and the action non stop Chee is out of his depth and...

    Another Navajo mystery novel This one gets into Washington politics and explores how egomaniacs come to control the nation It makes very clear how the War on Drugs only benefits the drug czars As fiction, there is a black and white difference between the good guys and the bad guys, but I think that there is a lot of truth to the way the system functions He also made me aware of how natural gas and oil are being somehow siphoned away from Navajo land without paying the legally required roya Another Navajo mystery novel This one gets into Washington politics and explores how egomaniacs come to control the nation It makes very clear how the War on Drugs only benefits the drug czars As fiction, there is a black and white difference between the good guys and the bad guys, but I think that there is a lot of truth to the way the system functions He also made me aware of how natural gas and oil are being somehow siphon...

    The sinister pig refers to a being who has eaten his fill but doesn t allow others to eat too Sound like any Republicans you know I m rather late coming to Hillerman s mysteries I find them adequate as a quick read.
