    Visiting Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee in the pages of a Hillerman mystery is the next best thing to sleeping under the stars in Navajo country, wondering if there is magic in the sky above.A Thief of Time has atmosphere to spare, and a complex plot Leaphorn and Chee are also fleshed out than usual in this terrific entry Both men are dealing with personal issues as this mystery begins Chee hasn t quite figured out how he feels about Mary leaving him because he could not leave his Navajo way of life behind, and move to the city with her He is smitten with a pretty Navajo attorney named Janet, but she s with someone else Leaphorn, meanwhile, is on terminal leave and retiring after an unexpected death which has hit home.Neither man can explain Leaphorn s obsession with finding a missing pot hunter named Eleanor Friedman Bernal Perhaps Leaphorn is simply distracting himself from the pain All that is clear is that a Navajo would not be involved because according to Navajo tradition, stealing pots would make one a Thief of Time.Chee s allowing a rather large backhoe get stolen right under his nose will have ties to Leaphorn s investigation Once the young policeman with an appreciation for the old ways of the Navajo will be investigating with Leaphorn all across the Navajo territory This one stretches all the way up into U...

    Tony Hillerman s mystery series set in the Navajo Nation includes 18 books written by him over 4 decades I used to read these with my Mom who was born in New Mexico and raised in the Southwest U.S so they have special interest for us It s many, many years since I ve read one of these old school mysteries and I loved returning to them in A Thief of Time A Thief of Time is someone who steals bones and artifacts from Native American ruins, of which there are thousands in the Four Corners area of the U.S I was immediately drawn into this story of two seemingly unconnected crimes, one the theft of a flat bed trailer and the other of a missing anthropologist who specializes in pots, especially focused on those of the Anasazi culture which abruptly disappeared almost a thousand years ago Navajo Tribal Policemen, Jim Chee and Joe Leaphorn are working these cases separately, but as Chee finds out about the missing trailer and Leaphorn explores the anthropologist s very specialized work and history, they see that the crimes are intertwined Bodies pile up and hundreds of miles are traveled in their efforts to prevent murders and solve the crimes.I love Hillerman s writing He not only spins a good story, but he is a master of describing the landscape and ed...

    As a New Yorker born and bred, a city girl through and through, the only Native American settlements that have ever appealed to me are these Nice location, I always think Sunny in winter, shaded in summer, this spacious apt has great views Exclusive gated development convenient to community gardens, grocery stores, schools, houses of worship, craft shops High floor unit boasts magnificent original murals and fine adobe detailing Must see to appreciate Sold Who were the people who made the cliff dwellings of Chaco Valley Scholars call them the Anasazi The river valleys of the Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado border country are filled with tens, maybe hundreds of thousands of these high rise communities where runoff irrigation helped agriculture flourish even in the arid high desert The many villages were linked by complex land and water routes for trading pottery and other artifacts Many of the bowls and other ceramics carried from one canyon to another were true works of art with sophisticated glazes and firing techniques The most beautiful might be the work of just a few individual crafts people making their wares in specialized centers Here are examples of the late style St John Polychrome ceramics that figure in Hillerman s eight Le...

    The Thief of time is a beautifully written and observed piece It is thriller, mystery, life, saga and page turner Jim Chee is set on detecting just who has stolen the flat bed truck from the police depot a theft that seems to be about buck passing within the force rather than detection While he is supposed to be watching a back hoe is stolen from the depot Meantime Joe Leaphorn, only days away from retirement after the death of his beloved, Emma, is put on to a case of Grave Robbing A respected archaeologist, Eleanor Double Barrelled Surname, has been accused of stealing pots from Anasazi grave sites Only when Leaphorn turns up at the accommodation it seems she is actually missing Leaphorn s second senses are aroused when it turns out the backhoe and flatbed truck appear to be related to whatever has happened to the missing woman too The ensuing novel is a wonderful crossing over of crimes, of lives intertwined, of coincidences which turn out to be significant later on, and nicely observed human foibles Beneath all of this Leaphorn is mourning for his lost wife and trying to come to terms with his life without her It is a nice intertwining of his life prior to meeting her and his life how, and reflected in the lives of the two archaeologists who are left at the site Jim Chee, meanwhile, the traditional of the two policemen, is struggling with his own personal ...

    An anthropologist who s willing to cross legal lines in order to find the truth of the past has disappeared somewhere in the canyons of the Southwest Was she stealing antiquities Two police officers in the Navajo Tribal Police have to sort through a series of series of improbable events to find out the truth.Some solidly enjoyable mystery reading This one s not a hugely remarkable plot, as far as a puzzle goes, but is otherwise very well written Where this shines is in the procedures, which is not something I d ever thought I d say, because I ve disliked anything procedural in the past I admired...
