    1. Tony Hillerman does a lot of reseach when writing his mysteriesThese stories incorporate many Navajo Tribal legends and customs within the story line and his description of the New Mexico scenery is like being thereI very highly recommend this book to anyone who loves mysteries or anyone who loves reading about American Indians and our customs


    2. excellent set of mysteries Learned something a Navajo religious practices along with culture and bad guys all mixed together.


    3. I love Tony Hillerman s novels They easily suck you in, but they never leave you feeling like you ve read something pointless like a number of popular mysteries I ve read.I recommend reading these books with pictures of the southwestern landscape it really brings things to life Also recommend reading about the history and beliefs of the southwestern American Indians it does provide a lot of good information and allows one to better understand their lifeways.


    4. I usually don t like these anthologies I get tired of the same characters and types of stories However, I really enjoyed these Chee is an interesting character and the information about Navajo and Hopi culture and religion is great These aren t really mysteries in the traditional sense yes, there are murders, but there are other crimes at the root like mob hits and drug running I think Ghostway was the best.


    5. 5 15 Finished People of Darkness and enjoyed it Hillerman s books are sometimes slow to start but pick up well.7 14 Finished all three, and although I enjoyed them I think I like the mysteries with Leaphorn in them better Of these three, The Dark Wind was my favorite The Ghost Way went slower than the others, maybe because I had to sort of read it piecemeal because of being in the middle of moving.


    6. All three of these were outstanding The Dark Wind had the best mystery, but the other two had personal takes of Chee The Navajo are endlessly fascinating and Chee s methods of observation leave folk like me in the dust Good stuff.


    7. I am re reading the entire Tony Hillerman series in preparation for my October trip Some books are stronger than others but, taken together, they give one a marvelous sense of the Four Corners country and of Navaho culture and religion.



    8. Jim Chee novels are always good What s amazing is that they are consistently good, and the writing is well done Reading them I feel as though I am transported to a very different culture.


    9. Only 40 pages into this and already I know this is the quality of writing and story I expected Hillerman was one of the best at this genre.
