    Like millions of other readers, I first encountered Tony Hillerman in his Leaphorn and Chee mysteries A master of characterization, intricate, twisty plots, and lush depictions of place, I had fallen in love with his Southwest and gained a much deeper understanding of the Native American cultures that coexisted there Could those gifts be transplanted to a place outside American borders In Finding Moon, Hillerman shows that the answer is a definite yes.Malcolm Moon begins his story as a sma Like millions of other readers, I first encountered Tony Hillerman in his Leaphorn and Chee mysteries A master of characterization, intricate, twisty plots, and lush depictions of place, I had fallen in love with his Southwest and gained a much deeper understanding of the Native American cultures that coexisted there Could those gifts be transplanted to a place outside American borders In Findi...

    This is the first non Jim Chee novel I have read by Hillerman While it was an easy read, I found it predictable and, at the same time, not believable The characteristics of each person were repeated rather than developed Osa was classy, Moon was not Moon had self doubt, everyone else believed in him Mr Lee was mystical and Nugeyn was pro American and fiesty Hillerman did his homework about VietNam, the war, the country and surrounding areas and for that I give him credit.

    This book seemed to take FOREVER for me to read Usually I have trouble putting down a book when I should be doing other things, such as going to bed at night I didn t have that issue with this one.

    This is NOT a Jim Chee book, I saw the name Tony Hillerman, and thought it was, especially because of the cover Once I started reading, I realized, that years ago I had done the same thing, and read this book before Having been in SEA when Saigon fell, I remember well the total confusion This book addresses some of the problems during this event Story, a reporter has a brother running a private business in SEA, he is unaware that his younger brother has a wife and baby His brother is killed This is NOT a Jim Chee book, I saw the name Tony Hillerman, and thought it was, especially because of the cover Once I started reading, I realized, that years ago I had done the same thing, and read this book before Having been in SEA when Saigon fell, I remember well the total confusion This book addresses some of the problems during this event Story, a reporter has a brother running a privat...

    This book was a good change of pace in the Tony Hillerman collection I found the characters to be quite relatable and believable The pace of the book was pretty good I felt, maybe even better than many of the usual Hillermans, which are rather prosaic upon occasion.Be aware that readers will need to have a pretty good knowledge of South Asian geography in order to follow this book Knowledge of the politics and players of the Vietnam War is also a must I had to read up on some of these topics This book was a good change of pace in the Tony Hillerman collection I found the characters to be quite relatable and believable The pace of the book was pretty good I felt, maybe even better than many of the usual Hillermans, which are rather prosaic upon occasion.Be aware that readers will need to have a pretty good knowledge of South Asian geography in order to follow this book Knowledge o...
