If you’ve read any of Tony Hillerman’s books, then you know Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn. In this story he’s dealing the murder of a Zuni boy and the disappearance of his best friend, a Navajo boy. As in all of Tony Hillerman’s books, it’s a complicated story.
This may only be the second book but it was so good it won an Edgar Allen Poe Award in 1973. Come read my review over at Quirky Girls Read.
