      • content: Native American Joseph Bruchac borrows from an Abenaki legend about the skeleton man. The contemporary setting of the story will intrigue listeners. When young Molly awakens to discover her parents missing, she doesn't know what to think. Tension and excitement grow as she discovers she must fight a much older man for the lives of her family. Narrator Carine Montbertrand captures the reactions of a girl Molly's age in a lifelike way. She sustains suspense well while meeting the challenge of bringing to life what is essentially a two-character novel. This book, which is on many reading lists, is excellent, even for reluctant readers. S.G.B. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine

        Starred review from October 18, 2004
        In MWA Grandmaster Hillerman's sterling 17th Chee/Leaphorn novel, a 1956 collision between passenger planes high above the Grand Canyon leaves a courier's arm and attached diamond-filled security case unaccounted for after almost half a century. Enter retired Navajo Tribal Police Lt. Joe Leaphorn, who must try to connect the dots between an old robbery involving a valuable diamond and a more recent crime involving another diamond, both of which may somehow be related to the plane-crash jewels. The puzzle soon draws in fellow Navajo officer Sgt. Jim Chee and former cop Bernie Manuelito, Chee's soon-to-be bride. Billy Tuve, a cousin of Chee's lawman buddy Cowboy Dashee, is arrested after trying to pawn a gem believed to have come from the more recent robbery. Dashee enlists Chee's help to verify Tuve's story of a mysterious old man who gave him the jewel during a journey to a canyon-bottom shrine. But the good guys soon learn there are plenty more people in the hunt, and some will stop at nothing to get what they're after. The stakes are high and the danger escalates clear through to the final pages. Hillerman continues to shine as the best of the West. Agent, Maureen Walters at Curtis Brown.

      • content: Navajo police officers Joe Leaphorn (now retired) and Jim Chee (now a sergeant) are united in the latest in Hillerman's award-winning series. This case involves a decades-old airplane crash near the Grand Canyon, a woman's attempt to reclaim a lost legacy, and missing diamonds. As a young Hopi man tries to pawn a valuable diamond, he sets in motion a chain of events that ends at the bottom of the Grand Canyon. Leaphorn interviews an old acquaintance to build a sequence of related occurrences. Chee helps his friend, Cowboy Dashee, clear the Hopi charged in the theft. George Guidall does an excellent job as reader. He navigates the Navajo words easily and gives each character a distinctive sound. R.C.G. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine
