If you like Tony Hillerman’s mysteries about Navajo Nation Policemen Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee, you’ve probably been missing them since Hillerman died. Well, now there’s a new Hillerman: Anne Hillerman, Tony’s daughter.
Spider Woman's Daughter
Her new book is Spider Woman’s Daughter, featuring Leaphorn, Chee and Chee’s wife Bernie Manuelito. It’s good, too. I’m reading it right now. You get everything that you always liked about a Hillerman (Navajo culture, exciting action and beautiful Four Corners setting), plus modern up-to-date slang and plot, and a new emphasis on Bernie Manuelito.
I definitely recommend this new addition to the series!
