Book Review: Skinwalkers by Tony Hillerman

Skinwalkers by Tony Hillerman

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Tony Hillerman always has a good tale to tell in his modern western combination of murder mystery, and Navajo culture as Navajo Tribal Police Officer Jim Chee and Lt. Joe Leaphorn tunnel through evidence to find the cause of mysterious death on the reservation. This is the first book with the Cee/Leaphorn team working together so the two guys have to get to know each other and trust that they are both on the same side. In this tale, the capture of the killer seems to be straightforward until under questioning he confesses that he shot the guy he killed, rather than knifed him as the evidence shows. This takes out duo on a circuitous journey through the backwaters of the reservation to find out the sordid tale underlying the death and the long covered up reason. Chee takes flak from Leaphorn for mistakes, and four homicides are in danger of becoming five by the time the mystery is solved.
