Description

A Zuni Indian boy dies in a bizarre ritual slaying - and his best friend, a Navajo youth, is missing. Navajo police lieutenant Joe Leaphorn tracks the friend from Zuni village to Navajo hogan, from anthropological dig to hippie commune, across the desert of New Mexico and Arizona. In his search, Leaphorn discovers the ancient secrets of the Zunis and the hidden crimes of white men. Narrator Michael Ansara's experience with American Indian roles on stage and screen lends authenticity to his resonant reading of this Edgar-winning tale of murder and deception.

Pace was off

The problem with an abridged book is that it lacks the depth that a good author can give in a full length treatment. That was clearly the case here. Other than that, it was a pleasant experience.
Why no other books by Hillerman at Audible.com?

Dancehall of the Dead

Hillerman is an easy read and has a pleasant way he approaches his characters. This is the first book I have listened to but have read 6 or 7 and they are just as good anyway you take them. I would like to see more audibles done as I don't mind listening over and over. I highly recommend him to anyone who enjoys a good wholesome story with intrigue and down to earth approaches.

Great listen

This is a wonderful mystery that is both clear and easy to listen to and keep up with. I'm a big fan of Hillerman, and hope that many more of his books will be available on Audible!

Great story, good narration, poor production

I love Hillerman and Michael Ansara did a good job of bringing the story to live with voice characterizations. I was disappointed by the sound quality and uneveness in production. It definitely detracted from an otherwise excellent book narrated with a memorable voice. Accordingly, I was disappointed overall and wouldn't have purchased this audiobook had I know of the issues in the recording.

Painful Narration

Not a bad book but I had to start listening three times due to the painfully monotone narration. Would be a pretty good listen if they re-did it.

The storyteller I will always remember!

Almost 20 years ago (when I could still read) I become addicted to the great Navajo nation policeman, Lieutenant Joseph Leaphorn. He opened my mind to the wonders of the Native American way of life, the reverence he expressed for all forms of life, and the truly awesome mysticism which he used to find his way his way to the to the "bad guy" ! I couldn't wait wait for Tony Hillerman to writ a new book I was always on his web sight, carefully checking to see when his next book would be available to read.

I've been an Audlible subscriber for a number of years now, even before I lost the ability to read due to my diagnosisI have

abridged and not read by George Guidal. Would have purchased if not for these reasons. But i did and that's that. Have gotten George Guidal version since.
