A lost gold mine, a corpse in an abandoned pickup truck, and an eerie wailing heard on Halloween are among the delicious plot elements Tony Hillerman cooks up in his 15th novel featuring Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee. The two Navajo cops, one old and one young-who originally debuted in separate series but have been collaborating for many books now-are among the most engaging, fully human characters in crime fiction. As The Wailing Wind beautifully demonstrates, there's only one Tony Hillerman ... and he's at the top of his game.

Professional reviews

"The Dinee are alive and well, and all the old familiar names and places are present: Janet Pete and Mary Landon, old loves who haunt Sergeant Jim Chee; Dr. Louisa Bourebonette, confidante/companion to Lt. Joe Leaphorn, retired, of the Navajo Tribal Police; and Officer Bernadette Manuelito, who is beginning to have a major psychic impact on Jim Chee. George Guidall is once again masterful in this practiced combo of author and narrator. But this is a thin plot in which an old case is reopened several years after the fact by seemingly unrelated fresh murders motivated by gold lust. Guidall is totally convincing as the presenter of this cast of characters who have dwelled so long in our imaginations that the recycled plot is a disappointing contrast. M.D.H.
