Admittedly, I listened to this book, which may have colored my response to it On the other hand, I have difficulty with books where seemingly unrelated plot lines all merge together in the end or never get tied up On the other hand, the setting and cultural details of the Navajo and Hopi tribes, not to mention the big bad federal agents are always interesting I know th Have never read any Tony Hillerman books before Now having visited Arizona, and some of the areas Tony writes about , had to check him out Really good read loved the characters, especially Jim Chee Book only 300 pages reads super fast and very difficu Tony Hillerman passed away in October of 2008 His 18 books in his Navajo series have won numerous award and have earned Mr Hillerman Friend of the Navajo status As you read Hillerman I suggest you keep a notebook handy something I will do so as I read my next novel His native American characters share a depth of cultural information worth remembering Dark wind is Jim Chee at his best Wind mills,holy ground, rain, A definite step up from the first Chee novel, largely because the tribal politics and beliefs areprominent, but also because the author has gottencomfortable with the character Still, Chee is not an equal to Leaphorn, but the supporting cast make up for that lack.As usual, the pacing is methodical, the prose distant and unadorned, and the plot twisty It s good stuff, and deserving of it s acclaim, but not terribly engaging The series has grown on me, but it will be a while before A definite step up from the first Chee novel, largely because the tribal politics and beliefs areprominent, but also b This isof a 2.5 for me So far I m not overly enthusiastic about Chee as a character I know he developsas the series goes on but his elastic sense of right and wrong bothers me Probably the most genuine part was his outrage at the way he was mistreated by the DEA Jim Chew, a rookie Navajo tribal policeman is assigned to find who is damaging a windmill to supply water to the Hopi Indians He is staking out the windmill when he witnessed a plane crashing landing in a nearby arroyo He is first to reach the plane and finds a dead man shot in the middle of the road He reports the accident and learn I love reading books where the geographic location becomes almost a character in the story and I particularly love reading such books when I am physically in that location So, while on a recent trip to the Southwest, I thought it was a perfect time to read a few Tony Hillerman books I found the experience to be enhanced when Hillerman was describing the topography and I would look up from the book and see those same mountains or town In this fifth book in the Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee series I love reading books where the geographic location becomes almost a character in th
