Description

First there was the trouble at Saint Boneventure boarding school. A teacher is dead, a boy is missing, and a council woman has put a lot of pressure on Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn and Officer Jim Chee to find her grandson. Sitting on a rooftop watching sacred clowns perform their antics in a Pueblo ceremony, Chee spots the boy. Then, suddenly, the crowd is in commotion. One of the clowns has been savagely murdered. Without a single clue, Chee and Leaphorn must follow a serpentine trail through the Indian clans and nations, seeking the thread that links two brutal murders, a missing teenager, a band of lobbyists trying to put a toxic dump site on Pueblo land, and an invaluable memento given to the tribes by Abraham Lincoln in a fast-paced, flawless mystery that is Hillerman at his lyrical, evocative, spellbinding best. Performed by Gil Silverbird

Professional reviews

"Tony Hillerman delights his readers with another Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee tale in which they investigate separate but convergent crimes. George Guidall lends his considerable talents to convey Hillerman's mysticism and the complexity of his characters. Hillerman's admiration for the St. Bonaventure School is brought out in the text, then reinforced in an appealing interview with the author at the end of the program. Much as Leaphorn encourages Chee to be observant of every detail, Guidall takes the same advice. He captures every nuance of the story with pace, tone and subtle inflection. His narration matches Hillerman's spare writing style while his careful characterizations build a dynamic whole. This masterful interpretation by Guidall should send all listeners in search of his other Hillerman titles. R.F.W. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
