In his Chee/Leaphorn series, best-selling author and recipient of the Navajo Tribe's Special Friend Award, Tony Hillerman, magically combines Navajo lore and modern American culture. In The Fallen Man, he brings Leaphorn out of retirement to join Chee in solving one of his most chilling mysteries to date. When a human skeleton is discovered on sacred Navajo land, the publicity surrounding the find sets in motion a widespread investigation and a series of attempted murders. After a Washington group hires Leaphorn to investigate the "fallen man's" past, he joins Chee in unraveling a deadly intrigue that finally involves players from both the FBI and a suspicious corporation. Sensitive insight into Navajo culture and intricate storytelling explain why Hillerman's tales are bestsellers. Guidall's dramatic, well-paced narration makes clear why each release in the Leaphorn/Chee series attracts a wider audience.

by Tony Hillerman
"Tony Hillerman returns his latest novel to the stunning landscape of New Mexico, as well as to Navajo tribal policemen Jim Chee and Joe Leaphorn, now retired, who seek to solve the mystery of a fallen climber and his disappearance ten years earlier. George Guidall achieves a unity with Hillerman's work that makes this audiobook quite exceptional. He draws listeners into the story with an intimacy as if speaking directly to each one. He projects the internal narrative that reflects the struggle between the Navajo and Anglo cultures. Guidall colors the narrative with subtle, emotional shading and admirably projects both the vitality of the younger characters and the sagacity of the older ones. Guidall's narration works at several levels, as does Hillerman. R.F.W. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
